HARDWARES

WOE

Withdrawal

(Candlelight)

Reviewed by : David Perri
Rating : 8.0

In the pantheon of post-second wave black metal done very, very right, Philadelphia's WOE is among the elite, this band quietly and undramatically creating a catalogue that is vastly underrated, in spite of a world that unconditionally accepts and praises the vapidity that comes from sources like LITURGY's Hunter Hunt-Hendrix. 2010's 'The Road From Recovery' featured one of that year's most effective and affecting riffs, and the track should be considered amongst the top 50 black metal songs ever written, Woe putting forth a version of the art form that re-affirms its central tenet in its ability to reflect the abyss back to you. Latest album Withdrawal continues where 'The Road From Recovery' left off and Woe has maintained it standard of excellence, the collective putting forth a record that understands where black metal has been and how it will authentically expand, all the while creating art that is absolutely and consistently engaging. The opening duo of 'This Is The End Of The Story' and 'Carried By Waves To Remorseless Shores Of The Truth' are audacious and filled with purpose, and when the latter, at 1:10, reveals Woe's greatest riff since 'The Road From Recovery', you smile at the knowledge that there are still bands that create black metal with all the caustic, jagged edges it deserves.
