Woe - A Spell for the Death of Man

Art by Justin Miller.

Woe's 2009 debut full-length A Spell for the Death of Man is now available on Bandcamp. This is pure black metal. Not depressive, not atmospheric, and certainly not symphonic. Thick riffing, unrelenting drumming, and searing melodies. Direct and emotional. Here are reviews from Teeth of the Divine and Last Rites.

  1. Awesome stuff. My go-to album for before and after gigs has been "Quietly, Undramatically" for a while now, which might be weird because I'm a classical guitarist. But maybe not so weird, because it's so good. Maybe having my Bach be informed by black metal sets me apart.

    1. A kind a clearing the brain ritual before and after intense concentration?

      Got a mail from Chris Grigg/Woe: "The sloppy-as-shit Absinthe Invocation demo is up there now, too!"
