In The Woods are reforming! Hear it from drummer Anders in this PodcastWe 'HEart' In The Woods
They were perhaps Norway’s strangest band. Their classic album ‘HEart Of The Ages’ still beguiles and riddles to this day. After years of magic, we thought they’d packed it in. Well…. think again.
In The Woods… are coming back.
And pretty much none of us can really guess what on earth their new music will sound like. The only thing that’s certain is that it’ll be required listening for anyone into challenging, strange, tripping sounds.
Lorcan Archer tracked down drummer Anders Kobro to find out exactly what’s going on – and to reflect on 20 years of one of the underground’s defining albums.
Never Heard Them Before? Don’t Worry.
Below is the full album ‘HEart Of The Ages’. This was nothing short of a revolution when it came out on the respected Misanthropy label (Burzum, Primordial, Mayhem etc) in the mid 90s. It was an album that truly opened minds. Relax, get into it, and you’ll come to love it.
They Made It To Ireland, Didn’t They?
They sure did, waaaaay back in the mists of time alongside a youthful Katatonia. Here are some old photos from those shows, with a few courtesy of resident hoarders Pat Clancy and Gordon O’Sullivan.
What Else Should I Listen To?
After you’re done with HEart, we’d really recommend you listen to ‘Omnio’. It’s a touch more experimental but also warmer, rounder and a bit more rockier in places as well.
The new album is apparently going to come out on France’s Debemur Morti label, and we’ll make sure to keep you updated on what will be the next chapter in this band’s fascinating musical story.
