Everyone who discovered Woods Of Desolation only with the brilliant "Torn Beyond Reason" now has the chance to check out their excellent debut album as well. The original press of the CD, which was limited to a mere 500 copies, sold out quickly and is now a much sought-after collectors item. The same goes for the 300-copies vinyl edition.
While the music may be harsher than "Torn Beyond Reason", the desolation their band name implies, as well as the melancholy and beauty of their most recent album, are also very much apparent in "Toward The Depths", and so the album comes highly recommended for Depressive Black Metal-junkies in general and all W.O.D. fans in particular./Quote Northern Silence Productions
