WYRMWOODS – GAMMA ( Review by Varg The Mighty )

 Today’s review is of Finnish Avant-Garde Black Metal band Wyrmwoods’ new album “Gamma”.

 This album takes big inspiration from Atmospheric Black Metal in the low intensity of the album and the rarity of parts with vocals, but it is definitely Avant-Garde, with unusual dissonances, tempo shifts and progressions that reach a point sometimes that make it seem badly played, yet being perfectly performed and intended to create original soundscapes.
The music also has notable influences from Jazz, especially notable in the song “Subterrane” on the level of composition and on the implementation of instruments that are unusual for Metal. These influences may make Imperial Triumphant come to mind, but while the similarities are numerous, this approach to the combination is quite different.
This album is very curious and complex, and is a good follow-up to the previous albums, with little to no stylistic changes and interesting songs. I recommend it to fans of Avant-Garde Black Metal and Jazz Metal.
