Woe Streams An Ode To "The Ones We Lost"

U.S. black metal unit Woe will release new "Hope Attrition" full-length album next month via new label home Vendetta Records. In advance of its release and in conjunction with Valentine's Day, today "The Ones We Lost" is offered up for public feasting.

"If the name doesn't give it away, 'The Ones We Lost' is about coming to terms with a loved one's death," elaborates founding guitarist/vocalist Chris Grigg. "For me, it is the most draining song of Woe's entire catalog. I, the other members of the band, and seemingly everyone I know had to deal with sudden deaths of family and friends over the past few years. Even if you recover, it leaves you changed."

He goes on to say, "The cognitive dissonance between your body's sense of something fundamentally broken in the world and the world's indifference never really goes away. I think of this song as the emotional centerpiece of the album, a statement about grappling with the individual's powerlessness in the face of the ultimate, final uncaring force."
