Woods of Ypres has issued the following update about recording a new album:

"Greetings Woodsfolk of the MySpace Blog,

"This process of pre-production for W4 had been weighing heavily on my mind for quite some time. I got right to work as soon as we returned from our tour of Eastern Canada in May. It was daunting at first, as it always is, but a week later I'm really excited about what we're about to create. I have a very strong sense of what this album is about, why we're making it and where it fits into the grand-scheme of all that is WOODS. The guys are all hard at work on their respective parts. We are working with 16 song-skeletons, about 64 minutes of music at approximately 4 minutes each, and other conceptual multiples of the number four. The sounds range from strange to straightforward and obviously heavy. I, personally, really, really, really like what we have here, and we hope you will too.

"It's not even black metal, nor is it 'I Can't Believe it's not Black Metal.'

"But it will be interesting and HEAVY!!! So, get spreading the good word. Thanks as always! More soon!"

What's Next?

Well, that statement may have changed my mind on their future material. I intended to kind of avoid it because I don't want it to damage my enjoyment of what I consider the woods trillogy. The playing isn't the best I've ever heard but the lyrics of many songs hold a lot of meaning to me.

If they're moving away from the black metal sound however, I can see that turning out well, and the 4 concept... strange but interesting enough to warrant a listen.
