Hi everybody. We’ re back today with another review. Wode is a three piece, black metal band, formed in Manchester, U.K back in 2010. Their self titled, full length, debut album will be released on the 8th of April via Broken Limbs Recordings. Six tracks are included in this album.
I’ve been listening to this album for some time now. Inspired by the norwegian scene but also by bands like Wolves in the Throne Room these guys here deliver pure black metal. ”Wode” sounds atmospheric and ultra-heavy at the same time. You can also trace a certain sense of epicness here. For example, check out ”Trails of Smoke”. Really nice track no doubt. ”Plagues of Insomnia” contains some really nice riffs as well as cool heavy, guitar solos. Personally, my favorite one is ”Cloaked in Ruin”. Hands down, this is a great track where black metal and heavy metal blend ideally. To be honest, i liked all of their songs. Listening to this album i was like ”O.k gentlemen, you’ ve got my attention”.
I must admit i enjoyed this album. Therefore i would like to recommend it. Specially recommended for fans of Satyricon, Enslaved, Wolves in the Throne Room. Check out these links:
