Norway’s IN THE WOODS… will release their new masterpiece, “Cease The Day”, this coming November and it’s already getting awesome feedback:
“A progressive masterpiece!” says Planet Mosh with a 5/5 rating.
“Bow down before an album that will label In The Woods as 2018’s prog metal kings!” says Worship Metal.
We’re delighted to deliver another proof these quotes are accurate with a brand-new song, “Respect My Solitude”:
“Cease The Day” continues to prove IN THE WOODS… as masters of whatever craft they choose to pursue with 8 genre-destroying masterpieces:
01. Empty streets
02. Substance vortex
03. Respect my solitude
04. Cloud seeder
05. Still yearning
06. Strike up with the dawn
07. Transcending yesterdays
08. Cease the day
Recorded partly in Brighton, England and partly in Kristiansand, Norway the international flavour was added to by the mix being undertaken in France by Frederic Gervais (Studio Henosis). Now armed with an album truly representative of the band both past & present, the band look to a brighter future with the spiritual cleansing that is “Cease The Day”.

Conquerors of countless styles and sounds, IN THE WOODS… began in Norway in 1991 from the dissolution of Green Carnation. Their debut “Heart of the Ages” stands as a black metal classic to this day and brought a new style of atmosphere to the genre that hadn’t been heard before. Not to be pigeonholed, their follow ups “Omnio” and “Strange In Stereo” saw the band take their style in completely different directions, exploring realms of progressive rock, doom, and avant-garde stylings.
Dissolving in 2000, IN THE WOODS… lay dormant for fourteen years, before re-emerging in 2014 under the wing of Debemur Morti Productions. This partnership saw the release of “Pure” soon after. “Pure” continues the IN THE WOODS… tradition of defying expectation. Sorrow laden doom passages and psychedelic keys herald blistering melo-death riffing and everything in between, all accompanied by the powerful voice of the newest member of the band, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist James “Mr Fog” Fogarty. If “Pure” was any indication, IN THE WOODS… will be dropping jaws for years to come.
