    I notice they just made feature article (and front cover) of Unrestrained magazine. It seems like only yesterday when we reviewed their demo at Royal Carnage. Glad to see Mr Gold getting some recognition in the press.

    Wouldn't they seem like a good fit for HC 3?

    I think they would. I have posted before, Mr Gold seems to like the Moonsorrow/Wolven Ancestry additions. They would be a good addition to the HC family.

    Given their style & following, they'd absolutely be a good fit. I'm checking out "Against the Seasons" right now and digging it. Would you recommend any other album above that one?

    I've suggested them this year and last year :erk:

    I think I recall Dave saying they couldn't play HCII because the time of year it took place the band had other things going on (NAMM convention?).

    So, obviously this year their schedule should be free since HCIII is happening in Nov. Wonder if they've been approached at all or...?

    I'd like to see them as long as they play Through Chaos And Solitude I Came.

    Well, given the fact that Dave praised the additions of Moonsorrow and Wolven Ancestry, I'd say that there's a decent chance the band could play HCIII if the stars aligned. I'm not sure what it would take financially to make it happen, but as you indicated, I hope they've at least been approached, particularly in light of the facts that they would fit in musically, in addition to residing on this side of the Atlantic.

    I basically thought every song I heard off of "Against the Seasons" today was of extremely high quality, so I'd definitely recommend checking that one out if you haven't already.

    I'm considering flying back to Canada to watch them perform. An HC slot would save me much moolah!!!

    I'd say there's at least a 75% chance WoY will play HC3 this year.

    And, yes, I think they'd slay. David Gold is a fantastic musician, a very nice guy, and a killer songwriter. Woods is starting to get recognition because they're a (mostly) undiscovered gem. I think they're going to be a band to watch in the coming years.

    Why do you give them 75%?

    Thanks for all the kind words guys!

    I'll be making an official announcement in July about this as well as other future plans. I would love to have WOODS OF YPRES play the HC3!!!

    See you there!

    I picked up their new disc based on recommendations on this board, and I must say, they are of extremely high quality! I would love to see WOY play HC3. In fact, I think I will listen to them right now.

    HC 3 right now needs more cowbell but Woods of Ypres will also suffice. :headbang:
