|Woods of Ypres is a black metal band from Toronto, Canada. They have released one demo, an EP and three full-length albums, the most recent of which is named Woods IV: The Green Album. The album was released in 2009.
Their demo, Against The Seasons: Cold Winter Songs From The Dead Summer Heat is an overall more black metal release than Pursuit Of The Sun & Allure Of The Earth, which makes use of a lot of acoustic guitars and clean vocals, creating a feeling similar to melodic black metal and doom metal.
In 2010 the band's label Krankenhaus Records (owned by David Gold) announced they will be closing as of August 2010. The band will now continue releasing material under Practical Art Records, also owned by David Gold.
