Woods Of Desolation Finishes Recording New Album

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.

"I now have the ability and means to utilize a studio and improve the quality of the music for myself and subsequently better realize a vision of my music that I have held in my mind for years. I fail to understand why I should purposely make my music 'rawer' and inherently, in my eyes, of lesser quality simply because of someone else's preconceived notion of what MY OWN music should sound like. If I was to purposely try and make the production 'raw' and copy previous releases, and in turn create something I did not want to create, I believe that would be a far greater injustice to myself and Woods of Desolation. Not to mention, this would go way beyond the point of why I create this music; which is to serve as a natural expressive outlet for myself when I need it to, to create anything for the sake of others would simply be wrong and would never be done with my music whilst I'm still alive. Woods of Desolation is a deeply personal creation, and this new album will not be any different.

"With that said, a track or 2 from the new album will be posted here on the myspace shortly. This album will also feature some material I originally wrote for Austere, which will no longer be used, so Austere fans may or may not find some interest in this fact. Thank you to those that support Woods of Desolation and will continue to do so in the future."
