Music | News | Wood Lake Share Video for ‘Hollow’ & Announce Debut Album ‘Hell’

By Dale Platt

Ahead of the release of their debut album ‘Hell’, the guys from Wood Lake have just made their latest single ‘Hollow’ available to stream. At a time when the blending of black metal and shoegaze is at a creative peak, Wood Lake appear to be an outfit which could be at the forefront of the movement.

‘Hollow’ is a track which is certainly shoegaze at its very core – the black metal trimmings enable the track to really flourish and evolve beyond the normal confines of the genre.

Against a backdrop of crashing percussion, the vocals move from wistful in the verses, to a really charged peak throughout the chorus. There is no doubt the track is leaning heavily towards shoegaze, however, Wood Lake are evidently capable of something with a bit more teeth in the additional black metal stylings.

Slated for release on April 22nd, ‘Hell’ is sure to be packed with a number of twists and turns that deliver the punch that the sub-genre demands. Wood Lake are quickly growing in reputation, and this upcoming debut LP could see that growth accelerate further.
