In The Woods...

The history of In The Woods... dates back to 1990 and the creation of another band, Green Carnation. With that band splintering in 1992, three of the members (these being Anders Kobro and the brothers Botteri) decided to shift direction away from the death metal of that band's early period, and after recruiting new members, In The Woods... was born.

The history of In The Woods... dates back to 1990 and the creation of another band, Green Carnation. With that band splintering in 1992, three of the members (these being Anders Kobro and the brothers Botteri) decided to shift direction away from the death metal of that band's early period, and after recruiting new members, In The Woods... was born. Originally described as black metal, that term does the band no favors, as the orchestration and experimentations shows a much more varied sound than simple black metal. HEart Of The Ages is the more immediate album, featuring some incredible shrieking vocals (though clean vocals are found throughout) and generally more mid-paced, guitar-oriented songs, while the latter two albums feature male and female clean vocals, more experimentation, and a slightly slower pace overall. Comparisons to bands such as Therion, The 3rd And The Mortal, Celtic Frost, and My Dying Bride have been made, and while In The Woods... sounds like none of these, there is a touch of each in the mix, along with others as well. They preferred a low profile (indicated by the cryptic band member names, and never indicating who played what), heightening the sense of mystery that surrounded them. After releasing Three Times Seven On A Pilgrimage (a collection of three singles recorded at various times over their career), it was announced that a concert in December of 2000 would indeed be their last, closing the books on a quite unique band. (That concert has now been released, as Live at the Caledonian hall.) The three original members mentioned above were seen back in the rejuvenated Green Carnation at various times over the last few years.
