Line-up
David "Veillko" Gold - Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Drums
Jessica Rose - Keyboards
Sarah Green - session vocals
Connor Sharpe - Bass
Steve Jones - Guitar


Additional info
Also known as Woods II

Written in January - March 2004 in David Gold's Toronto, Ontario apartment and recorded, mixed and mastered during weekends April - June 2004, at Spectre Sound in Tecumsch, Ontario.
Released on David Gold's independent label: Krankhaus Records
The original pressing had faulty tracklisting, re-released in 2008 with correct tracklisting.

Near the beginning of this recording, the rest of the band decided not to continue with Woods of Ypres, leaving the guitar and bass tracks almost completely recorded. Connor Sharpe (bass) and Steve Jones (guitar) are not properly credited for these performances in the album's booklet.

9.0
I found this band while surfing on the net for new stuff, and I must say that the first thing that attracted me was the "genre" of the music, Woods Of Ypres call themselves "Summer Black Metal" and while you may think this is a happy, joyful Black Metal, is not. The Canadians are here to prove that summer can be a time of grief also.

I just don't see how you can find this boring then, unlike the otehr WoY albums, this one has tons of layers and different melodies.

Just listen the Outro: The End Of August.

even though something might have loads of layers and different melodies it can still be totally boring. Most of Dream theater''s songs are also boring as hell.

I don't know, sometimes I feel we are listening to two different albums

I have always suspected Undercraft to be deaf (read some of his doom reviews) and this review proves it

Rating: 8 Their best effort for me. They know how to blend the genres, well-balanced disc. It misses the cheese and maybe this is the point!
