Top Tracks: Woods End – Waves

Kind words, as always, from or friend over at Belwood Music!

Belwood Music

This Swedish band never fails to impress with their superb ability to craft a compelling atmosphere and conjure up evocative imagery. Their dark gothic folk styling particularly excels at creating a mood akin to some isolated wintery cabin, the kind where you gather round the crackling fire and tell tales of great adventures, of heroes and monsters, stories passed down through the generations. Their new single ‘Waves’ changes up this formula however, offering a more energised and progressive spin on their sound. Rather that a story shared on a quiet winter’s night, ‘Waves’ feels far more like the adventure itself. The riffs like the icy grip of the wind tearing at your skin, the brilliant percussion crashing like the waves upon the shore. This song feels like an epic tale in the making, the soundtrack of a titanic battle or the start of a grand voyage across a raging sea.

EP update

Now that Waves has been released, work is in full progress towards the release of our upcoming EP. We look forward to it, and hope to have it out in the near future. It will consist of the last singles (Waves, Pickaxe, Missing Piece) as well as two unreleased tracks.

Furthermore, we have a bunch of songs both partly recorded and unrecorded to get to. As of now, we’ll have a lot of music to release during some time ahead!

Next up for us is a trip to the grand old house by the Baltic Sea sometime in february, to keep this ball rolling.

As always, thank you for the continued support. If you missed out on Waves, you can find it via these links:

Waves teaser

So yet again we seem to have been slow on the updates…

But, there’s good reason. Lead singer Mats recently saw his second child born into the world, so things have obviously been on hold for a few weeks. All is well though, and we couldn’t be more happy for the Persson-clan!

Since then the vocals for our upcoming single have been recorded, and we’ve put together a little teaser for it. You can watch it over on our youtube channel

We’re looking forward to releasing it in a few weeks, so stay tuned and thank you all for the support!

Studio update

The darker it gets, the more productive we seem to be…

The past weekend saw us revisiting “Backwater Studios” (marked on the nautical chart), the summer house where we set up to record the ground work for what will eventually become our future release. With everything in place, drums and backing guitars were recorded for 4 new tracks.

This means we will have a lot of new music coming out for some time ahead, which feels great! It’s hard at this time to say what direction it all will take, and we have a feeling that we’re trying out some new things. We guess that time will tell, but at this point we think that we have some really great music coming up.  We hope that we’ll be able to share it with you all soon enough!

As always, thank you for the continued support, it means a lot!

Waves, EP and recording

Hey folks!

Since releasing “Pickaxe”, we’ve recieved a lot of nice feedback and we’d like to thank you all for listening to and sharing our music!

As of now we plan to release one more single, a track called “Waves”, before moving on with the full EP which will include two additional unreleased tracks. We’re currently finishing up the vocals on “Waves” and hope to have it out in a few weeks! The track is a somewhat more upbeat thing (at least compared to Pickaxe) and we hope you’ll like it!

Apart from that, we’ll be shipping ourselves out to the coast next weekend for another recording session, laying down the blueprint for what’s to come after this EP. We have a bunch of new songs and ideas, and usually the summerhouse in which we’ll set up our studio brings out a certain atmosphere itself.

Stay tuned, and thank you for the support!
