Origins
(Soulseller Records)
118:01min

During my long school carrier connected with every kind of outdoor activities nothing had made me more frightened than the moment when somebody with few skills but far more alcohol in his bloodstream started to entertain all party guests with his guitar playing. But in the end these bad experiences did not slow down my interest for convincing emotional music and bands like EMPYRIUM, TENHI or the long forgotten NAERVAER - even if my hair has become short and grey - are still touching something deep inside me. And these feelings are also there if it comes to "Origins" a compilation of all demo material of the Norwegian one man act WEH. The band is maybe not completely unknown to our readers due to their participation in the WINDIR tribute sampler from 2004 - the featured track is also part of this release - but the presented over 30 tracks show the development of this act over the last couple of years. The band started in 2002 and Erik's aim of presenting emotional music has not changed until today even if the handful of new tracks (on the second CD) show a darker and far more focused project. From the Metal point of view the tracks of the 2005 release "Hoof & Horn" are the most interesting ones with a real dark soul and impressing tracks like 'Ruin' and 'And The Bells Are Ringing Doom'. Such bands and also their more or less brave labels which are trying to reach a wider audience with such a dedicated release are the best proof that no band needs a 6 month studio period to record great music. "Origins" is a fantastic release full of northern melancholy which also works far away from every campfire. For further info check following link: www.soulsellerrecords.com
