Stare Into the Vastness of Wiegedood’s New LP
Featuring members of Rise and Fall, Oathbreaker and Amenra, Wiegedood are yet another band in the insanely deep stable of guys from Brussels, Belgium. And while the moniker sounds like what you might call your smart-ass German friend, in actuality it translates to "crib death" in Dutch. Sheesh, turn the lights on, guys.
Wiegedood practice what may be the past decade's most overused term: atmospheric or "epic" black metal. Consider them to be one of the few that aren't toiling in well-worn ideas and cliches, instead keeping things interesting, dramatic and biting for the entirety of the proceedings. De Doden Hebben Het Goed II is the band's latest, comprised of four tracks of the expansive variety. It's good, it's ruthless, it's emotional and it's also streaming in full below.
