One in which the emotional impact of post metal is allowed to bleed over into the music, using the impact of great shifts in dynamics and instrumental experimentation to great advantage, creating these multi-faced compositions – a lot like impressionist paintings done entirely in grey-scale.

Superbly underlined by the impressive drumming by Wim Coopers, adding a jazzy swing that helps Wiegedood transcend the somewhat mechanical feel that tend to hold back some of the more modern black metal.

De Doden Hebben Het Goed III – Official video

Having released two albums with almost uniform titles (De Doden Hebben Het Goed and De Doden Hebben Het Goed II) it would be quite easy to expect some sense of alikeness, structural coherence, something that anchors one in the other, but in reality the albums are quite different beasts texturally, the debut feeling ethereal and floating and the follow-up being a lot more visceral and jagged, even brutal in places.

Which of course sets high hopes for the upcoming De Doden Hebben Het Goed III, which will be released during Roadburn on April 20th.

Just two days later Wiegedood will be tearing up the Main Stage on Sunday, 22 April at Roadburn 2018.
