In the Woods... : Omnio



Before the writing of this review, there has been a discussion between the reviewers of this site. Should we include In the Woods... in the reviews section of the site, or not? After all, their first albums were almost pure black metal, then 'Omnio' could be considered rather doomy and afterwards they went into a more progressive and experimental direction. Since we also included other bands with only one doomy album, we decided to include this one too.

This album is a drop of 100% pure melancholy. Massive guitar melodies, a beautiful clean male voice, very high quality female vocals and pieces of string interludes, result in one of the most beautiful albums in my collection. Guitar melodies and vocal lines seem to be involved in one big dialogue, creating an epic feel with most of the tracks.

Inspiration comes from nature (once again), love and passion, feelings of despair and weakness. On '299796 km/s' and the three parts of the title track 'Omnio', a string quartet is added to the massive sound. And even without the strings, a song like 'Weeping Willow' is a really outstanding epic and melancholic piece of art.
