'Opus IV Oblivion' artwork revealed
Here it is, dark as death itself. The album artwork was designed by Darkgrove (Delain, Stratovarius, Sirenia, Manowar), and is inspired by the tomb art at the St John's Co-Cathedral of Malta. Laden with meaning and intricately woven with the lyrical theme. It looks awesome!
'Opus IV Oblivion' artwork by Darkgrove
The artwork for the new album is entrusted to Jan Örkki Yrlund of Darkgrove who designed artwork for Delain, Sirenia, Manowar, Korpiklaani and our own previous album among others. We have no doubt that he'll see our vision for it!
Fourth album title unveiled - 'Opus IV Oblivion'
There it is - the IV opus written around the concept of life's major philosophical and existential themes. The album, featuring nine songs, is a gothic-doom album in all the sense of the genre.

WS composing fourth album
2013 has been a tremendous year. Since January we started afresh with our new vocal line-up & barely three months later we hit the local live scene. Summer saw WS play in Benelux, also supporting Therion in Belgium! Then more festivals with the XMA & MDM Fests. WS has never been stronger morally & musically, so it is natural for us to start work on our new album. Much has been done already & we can tell you that this will be our most melodic & doom-laden work so far. Next year will bring further music! Until then, take care & doomed blessings! \m/
