In part three of his ongoing Deciblog adventures, WOE frontman Chris Grigg talks about his latest gear purchases, the anticipation of the band’s upcoming full-length, the importance of band rehearsal and the woes (pun absolutely intended) of being way too busy.

WOE’s Quietly, Undramatically full-length will be released in North America tomorrow, October 12.

“The album has a huge amount of variation, and tacks on enough unforeseen twists to keep even the most jaded metal fan listening for the whole run time. Fans of U.S. black metal need to make a point of keeping up with Woe.” — Metal Underground

“Woe’s penchant for creating atypical black metal is truly unparalleled”
— Metal Register

“It’s really hard to pin down Quietly, Undramatically to one sub-sub-grenre of BM. At moments Woe is reminiscent of Emperor. At other times Carpathian Forest and Absu. Woe have created something truly unique and interesting. This album has a depressing, dark overtone but not in a way that makes me feel like a fag for liking it.” — Stereokiller

“Melodic, catchy, stomping, pounding, melody, aggressive fusing black metal with crust and some sludge doom psychedelia, you won’t be disappointed with Woe. ” — Hellride

“Woe is a band that will take you of a journey to the pit of bleakness and back and for that I really want to hear more…” — AMZ
