Black metal has had a myriad of themes and one of the more popular topics is death. This pretty much covers most topics of death including suicide. While covering the emotion of loss isn’t new to black metal, Woe brings us a new track that deals with losing a loved one in classic black metal fashion. The screams, howls, blast beats and riffs send us the message loud and clear on “The Ones We Lost“.
Hope Attrition will see release on March 17th on CD, vinyl, cassette, and digital formats. Physical editions come swathed in the artwork of artist Justin Miller who’s handled artwork for all past WOE releases.
Additionally, a remastered edition of debut, A Spell For The Death Of Man
, is currently available digitally and on vinyl (limited to 500 copies) via Vendetta RIGHT HERE
Featuring Grigg alongside a monster lineup of longtime contributing bassist Grzesiek Czapla, guitarist Matt Mewton, and drummer Lev Weinstein, Hope Attrition is a dark, mournful work that draws from WOE‘s darkest black metal influences while drawing out dormant death metal undertones, bolstered by the crushing production of renowned engineer Stephen DeAcutis (Evoken, Dim Mak) at Sound Spa Studios in Edison, New Jersey. Hope Attrition is a personal commentary on the chaos of the modern world that only WOE can offer.
WOE will bring their warring odes to Europe with German black metal unit Ultha for a stretch of festival dates including an appearance at Roadburn on April 22nd with future onstage assaults both Stateside and abroad in the plotting stages.
