Cassette version. US black metal legion, Woe release their long-awaited full-length Hope Attrition, their first since 2014. Featuring founding guitarist and vocalist Chris Grigg alongside a monster lineup of longtime contributing bassist Grzesiek Czapla, guitarist Matt Mewton, and drummer Lev Weinstein, Hope Attrition is a dark, mournful work that draws from their darkest black metal influences, while drawing out dormant death metal undertones, bolstered by the crushing production of renowned engineer Stephen DeAcutis (Evoken, Dim Mak). "Hope Attrition is the result of the most intense writing and demoing process since the first album," says Grigg of the record's manifestation. "The long break from playing and performing gave me the opportunity to approach Woe with a renewed energy and perspective. The world itself provided the ultimate motivation and pushed us darker, heavier, more oppressive, resulting in the strongest work in our catalog. We are particularly proud to be working with Vendetta on this release, as they are a partner who shares our dedication to our art." Artwork by Justin Miller who has handled artwork for all of Woe's past releases. Additionally, the band's logo has been reimagined by legendary logo artist Equitant.
