One thing in advance – In The Woods... 2022 cannot be compared with the band in its early years. Too many tragedies and line-up changes have happened in all these years and if you know the last albums Pure and Cease The Day that the Norwegians released after their reunion in 2014, you know what will come. And again an important line-up change happened last year – their former vocalist James Fogarty quit the job at 21 and now they found an adequate replacement with Bernt Fjellestad.

So what does this mean for the new album Diversum?

First of all the songs are much more epic and comprehensible – I would even say in some cases more dramatic than on the previous albums. The guitar work is much more focused on some classic metal riffs and the black metal influences (if you ever had call it that way) are almost reduced to zero. The drumming is well-timed and the drums sound very punchy and full and Bernts vocals sound a little bit more sonorous than James' vocals did. He sings much calmer and more exalted and this gives the songs a very demanding touch, apart from that I would say that he has a very wider range in his voice from death metal-like to high-pitched screams. The eight songs create a very calm and thoughtful atmosphere and Diversum is a very good album to relax and come down. I said that the black metal parts are ALMOST reduced to zero, right? Of course they don't play some fabric softened metal, it is still quite heavy and in some parts they do have some black-deathish outbursts.
