In The Woods... - Pure (Full-Length Album - 2016) - Bandcamp Stream

Norway has always been the most fertile of lands for experimental and avant-garde Metal. During the last three decades fabulous visionaries have pushed beyond boundaries time and time again, propagating the ever-healthy Metal underground and its myriad sub-genres. The most prestigious and mythical of all are the legendary IN THE WOODS… the originators of truly progressive Dark Metal.

Now, 21 years after their singular, beyond-classic debut "Heart Of The Ages" and 17 protracted years after last full-length "Strange In Stereo", a reimagined and revitalised IN THE WOODS… deliver "Pure" - a stunningly focussed new record – a distillation of everything that makes them one of the greats.

The prolonged absence has led to a propulsive reinvigoration, a renewed directness and melodic refinement, a set of addictive songs grounded in the same strain of epic, atmospheric and psychedelic blackened Prog-Doom the band mined for their 1997 masterpiece "Omnio" – although this record is anything but a re-tread of old terrain.

As always with ITW the exploratory nature of the music stems from the freedom of 70's progressive rock: the dreaminess of vintage FLOYD and CAMEL, the skewed restlessness of prime CRIMSON, the perpetual questing of GABRIEL-era GENESIS and subtle Krautrock intimations.

The band have evolved, matured, the unit revelling in the pleasures of restraint. The mind-chaos of youth has transmogrified into the dark divinity of wisdom that only experience can bring - a welcome respite in times of ephemeral pleasures and hyperactive multiplicities.

At core "Pure" is a collection of huge-sounding, all-enveloping cosmic tales - a supermassive record fusing epic Dark Metal with hook-ridden doom-tinged modernism, the mind’s eye trained far beyond the archaic firmament deep into worlds unknown.
