Streaming now at: https://woodsofdesolation.bandcamp.com/

AVAILABLE NOW VIA: http://woodsofdesolation.bigcartel.com/
http://shop.northern-silence.de/




On this 3rd album, mastermind D. on guitars, with the help of session members (Vlad from Drudkh on drums, Luke Mills from Nazxul and Pestilential Shadows on bass, and Old from Drohtnung on vocals), continues the musical direction which was begun on "Toward The Depths" and refined on the very successful "Torn Beyond Reason".

Fans of the band will be pleased to hear that the main ingredients as well as the songwriting are similar to those on W.O.D.'s excellent sophomore album - haunting, melodic and intense Depressive Black Metal, delving further into melancholy and the essence of personal expression through music, which may occasionally remind the listener of another of Australia's finest, AUSTERE, as well as ALCEST, and perhaps "Brave Murder Day"-era KATATONIA."

The CD comes in gold-printed digipack and golden disc with exclusive artwork from Lucas Ruggieri, and is limited to 1881 copies.
181 of these come with 1.5" high quality logo metal pin.

The LP comes with gatefold jacket, A2 poster and, due to the high demand, in four different editions:
111x gold vinyl + CD (listening copy) and logo metal pin (same as the limited CD version)
222x purple vinyl
333x clear/black smoky vinyl
333x black vinyl

Tracklist:

1. Like Falling Leaves 5:06
2. Unfold 5:00
3. And If All The Stars Faded Away 4:41
4. This Autumn Light 4:20
5. Anamnesis 4:11
6. Withering Field 6:11
7. Ad Infinitum 5:14

Label (Northern Silence) preference. Don't see much appeal in it myself, but each to their own.

Scheduled for March, but I believe pre-orders commence in a couple of weeks.

i didn't get shocked through a first listen but it is for sure a very qualitative release and it carries one of the most beautiful artworks i've seen so far.

Indeed. Mr Ruggieri is quite talented and coming up with some quality artworks of late.

Unfortunately, I only got a small amount of copies in and these have pretty much all gone in pre-orders.
