Hot on the heels of their mind blowing 2016 opus 'Pure', Norway’s IN THE WOODS... return with their latest genre-destroying masterpiece, 'Cease the Day'.

Continuing to refine and perfect their sound while ever expanding it in new directions, ‘Cease the Day’ is a powerful and kaleidoscopic effort. A thunderous undercurrent of melodic riffing drives these songs forward with elements of doom, death, and progressive metal all coming together to form a cohesive whole.

Chilling ambience, psychedelia, avant-garde, and deep soaring vocals ebb and flow to craft a unique sound that truly must be heard to be believed, all before crushing the listener with the band’s most extreme moments since their debut ‘Heart of the Age’.

“‘Cease The Day’ is lyrically and musically an autobiographical diary of the last 2 chaotic years of the band – a new-found aggressive live sound and once again finding their place in the world of extreme metal and yet retaining the distinctive aura that launched the band way back in 1992.  From the depressive melancholy of ‘Empty Streets’, the reclusive ‘Respect my Solitude’ and through to ‘Still Yearning’ (a reference to the first track on the debut album) and the faux ‘live’ track ‘Transcending Yesterdays’ (written on the aforementioned rescue mission and recorded by James and Anders in the rehearsal room with crowd from recent gigs)…”  Read More
