Woods of Desolation has issued the following update about completing a new album:
"I'm very glad to be able to say that the new Woods of Desolation album is now complete! 2 years have pass since the 'Sorh' EP was recorded in 2008, and 3 years since the debut album 'Toward The Depths' in 2007, and after 'Sorh' I did not think another release would be completed, but thankfully with the help of Tim the album I wanted to create has finally become a reality.
"Quite alot has naturally progressed and matured in the years leading up to this recording and to think that this album wouldn't reflect that would be erroneous. A professional studio has been used to make this record and so I would naturally expect some people to complain solely about this fact. However, what people do not realize is Woods of Desolation was never intentionally made to be a 'raw black metal' project, I was simply using the tools I had at hand at the time to best complete the vision I had in mind of my own creation. Unfortunately my knowledge of recording techniques and equipment was rather poor, resulting in what has been labeled as 'raw black metal' by people outside the band. More...

Unfortunately, Desolate will not be featured on this release due to other commitments, but has been replaced by Sorrow aka Tim of Austere/Grey Waters, who will also take over the drumming position from myself. February will also see the release of a new t-shirt & patches via Eisenwald. Keep an eye here for more news to follow at a later date!"
