Woods of Desolation

Woods of Desolation was formed by D. in New South Wales, Australia in 2005 as a means of much deeper personal expression/unburdening through music. Utilising the help of P. Knight on vocals (and occasionally bass) located in the UK 2005- early 2007 saw the recording of 2 demos and 2 split releases released in very limited numbers via different underground labels. These early releases explored more the idea of raw improvisation and experimenting with various different self-recording techniques to achieve the final result.

Woods of Desolation was formed by D. in New South Wales, Australia in 2005 as a means of much deeper personal expression/unburdening through music. Utilising the help of P. Knight on vocals (and occasionally bass) located in the UK 2005- early 2007 saw the recording of 2 demos and 2 split releases released in very limited numbers via different underground labels. These early releases explored more the idea of raw improvisation and experimenting with various different self-recording techniques to achieve the final result.

Recorded in Winter 2007, and originally planned as a 3rd demo, 2008 saw the emergence of what would become the debut full-length “Toward The Depths”, released on CD, Vinyl and Tape via 3 different labels; Dark Adversary (Australia), Obscure Abhorrence (Germany) & Hammer of Damnation (Brazil) respectively. This release was also the last of P. Knight’s contribution to Woods of Desolation.

Autumn-Winter 2008 saw the writing & recording of the “Sorh” EP (meaning Sorrow in Modern English), a more focused and personal recording featuring Desolate of Austere on vocals on the entire EP. After some delay and problems, this was released worldwide in November 2009 as a digi-sleeve MCD by the German based label Eisenwald limited to 1000 copies. Vinyl version was released in 2010 featuring a bonus exclusive vinyl only track.

After the recording of Sorh, Woods of Desolation went on hold for sometime and it was thought another release would not eventuate. « hide
