Woods of Ypres, ‘Woods 5: Grey Skies and Electric Light’ – Top 2012 Metal Albums

This is a breathtaking album from start to finish, but the themes of ‘Grey Skies and Electric Light’ hit even harder having been released soon after the tragic passing of Woods of Ypres frontman David Gold. The words of Gold ring with limitless echo throughout the album, such as ”We shouldn’t worship the dead,” in ‘Adora Vivos’ and “We were nothing / For a billion years before our time / And we will be nothing more again / For an eternity yet to come,” in the beautiful yet gloomy ‘Death is Not an Exit.’ With this album, the late David Gold helped Woods of Ypres created a stunning opus.
