Woods of Ypres - IV: The Green Album [2009]

Melodic Black Metal - Canada

Lyrical themes:
Adversity, Depression, Nature, Canadiana, Summer

Founded in 2002 by David Gold and Aaron Palmer. Aaron moved after the recording of the first album and later the two paired up again for a project called The Northern Ontario Black Metal Preservation Society.

David Gold is the owner of Krankenhaus Records (the former label he released Woods of Ypres albums on) and Practical Art Records (the label The Green Album is released on).

David refers to the first three albums in Roman numerals and The Green Album in Arabic numerals as a sort of shorthand/alternative/additional title(s), thus:
Woods I = Against The Seasons: Cold Winter Songs From The Dead Summer Heat
Woods II = Pursuit Of The Sun And Allure Of The Earth
Woods III = The Deepest Roots And Darkest Blues
Woods 4 = The Green Album

David Gold also performed guest drums for Joel Violette's project Thrawsunblat's 2010 demo.
