As 20 Buck Spin prepares for the April unveiling of Burn In Many Mirrors, the third scathing blast of profane black death from England’s WODE, the new single “Fire In The Hills” has been issued alongside preorders for the album.
The follow-up to the highly praised Servants Of The Countercosmos, released by the legendary Avantgarde Music, WODE’s Burn In Many Mirrors presents the band’s most potently wild and predatory work yet. With six new tracks spanning forty minutes of meticulously summoned infernal ferocity, the band scorches the landscape and drapes it in the foul reek of death’s fog.
One may hear the ancient voice of obscure and revered gods reflected through WODE’s sulphuric incantations, the raging fire of the most blasphemous legends of the past called upon by the spirit of chaos and death. Shrouded in sepulchral black metal atmosphere and freezing cold melodies, Burn In Many Mirrors displays a studied regard for songcraft and motive well beyond mere convention, transforming into a concentrated dark chorus of ruin and abomination.
Now into the second decade of existence in the material plane, WODE’s definitive melding of black metal’s ecstatic desecration, death metal’s sharply attuned sense of violent purpose, and classic anthemic ‘80s metal instills Burn In Many Mirrors with the elements necessary to sear itself into the fervent heart of the faithful.
With the new single, “Fire In The Hills,” the band delves, “The fires burn. Heeding the call of obscure origin, profane figures assemble to commune with forgotten Gods. The smoke of their worship shrouds the Sun. Deranged chanting leads the dance of flame and black metal.”
Recorded by Joe Clayton at NØ Studio and mastered by Magnus Lindberg, Burn In Many Mirrors is completed with cosmic front and back cover paintings by Santiago Caruso (Stargazer) and layout by Envoy Of Death Design. WODE is a must here for fans of Sacramentum, Dissection, Watain, Nightbringer, Uada, Enslaved, Absu, Necrophobic, Craft, and Rotting Christ.
WODE has also been confirmed to host a guest DJ special on Gimme Metal on April 1st.
Stay tuned for new audio premieres and more on Burn In Many Mirrors to post over the bleak weeks ahead.
