Woe/Quietly Undramatically/Candlelight Records/2010 CD Review

Woe are a band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that plays a raw form of black metal with a depressive feel and this is a review of their 2010 album "Quietly Undramatically which will be released by Candlelight Records.

Drums are mostly midpaced to fast with alot of brutal blast beats and some slow playing, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the guitar.

Rhythm guitars are mostly midpaced to fast black metal riffs that are a raw and use a depressing tone at times and the ocassional thrash sounding riff with some slow riffing as well as soft accoustic guitar playing being used at times, while the lead guitars are primitive sounding black metal guitar solos that have a dark ambient feel at times.

Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams with some deep growls as well as some clean singing being used at times while the lyrics cover depressing and hateful issues, as for the production it is very dark and necro sounding which is the perfect for the primal black metal this music invokes.

In my opinion Woe are a very good band and this a good album from them that should appeal to all fans of raw and depressing sounding black metal. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Road From Recovery" "Without Logic" and "Hatred Is Our Heart".
