"Songs are rolling in! We are hoping for an end of August or early Septemberrelease, but as said before we will not finalize anything until it is at top quality standards, just like how Dave would want. He was a man who took great pride in what he did and this shall be treated no different!"

Steph LeDrew, the heartbeat of the project, recently issued the following statement:
"On December 21st the world lost Woods Of Ypres founder/frontman David Gold. Not only was the entire local metal community but the international metal family mourned the loss of such a brilliant soul. As a thank you and farewell to Woods of Ypres, I reached out to those who were influenced by Woods and David, so join me in creating a musical salute to one of the greatest doom metal bands to unleash onto the underground metal scene."
