Philadelphia black metal merchants Woe have shifted from being a misanthropic one man band to a fleshed out and furious full-on unit on the project’s latest endeavor QUIETLY, UNDRAMATICALLY. This newly comprised squad’s seven-track journey intertwines glacial black metal oppression with dynamic post metal composition nuances with a remarkably un-kvlt capturing of each individual instrument, especially noticeable in the scaled-down percussion section, resulting in an organically induced shot of despair propelled with traces of an odd juxtaposition of Baroness and Enslaved while at their most upbeat. Woe’s new fangled take on Norwegian despondence is spirited yet a bit uneven, resulting in a meandering mixed bag of progressive thought executed with a discernibly nefarious metallic disposition.
