about

Formally known as Woudloper, VERWOED emerged in 2014, with a mammoth self-titled demo tape released through Breathe Plastic Records the following year. While sharing similarities in sound and dynamics, VERWOED greatly surpasses Woudloper with this latest release by delving deeper into paranoid, almost hallucinogenic textures, entwined with dense, melodic ambiance that will leave you with one huge mind-fuck of a listening experience that is as terrifying as it is satisfying.

There is no specific song structure here – the listener is dragged compulsively through equal shades of dense melody and raw, visceral dissonance. Nihilistic in nature, melancholic in virtue. The opening track, which also shares the album title, pummels and pounds with blackened ferocity, before slowing down and shifting into a more melodic, post metal aesthetic. The second track, titled “Een Leven Aan de Oppervlakte” (translated roughly as “A Life on the Surface”) continues to swirl and morph, swelling into a vicious, dismal fury of blast beats and dissonant riffs. The vocals are guttural and ferocious, and add to the seemingly nightmarish environment. The album closes with “Leegte” (“Void”), a mournful piece that swells and sways through ethereal passages of ambient texture and sorrowful melody.

Bodemloos, whose English translation amounts to “Bottomless,” is exactly that – an unending exploration through corridors thick with atmosphere and rich experimentation. Recorded by John Bart Van Der Wal (who also mixed and mastered the album), Bodemloos is as barbaric as it is entrancing. A visceral ascension into a comforting psychosis, if such a thing is possible. Simply put, I did not want it to end. (Cvlt Nation)
