Forgotten Pride

Rated 2.78/5 (55.56%) (9 Votes)

Woodtemple have had a long, also-ran type career as basically a mellower Graveland. That maybe sounds like I dislike them, but that's not true, I like Woodtemple quite a lot. They are just not a band that you really get all worked up over. Their songs are slow, moody, and kind of relaxing. This is their fifth album in a discography spanning a dozen years, though this is quite scant. Forgotten Pride clocks in at just over a half-hour, with only two songs in the longer vein that has been the band's signature. I was hoping for more 12 or 15-minute epics, but these songs just don't have the kind of gripping atmosphere as cuts from The Call From The Pagan Woods. This disc finds Woodtemple just kind of treading water. If you like them, then this is worth it, but it's not their best work.
