So, finally got my copy of that record. Released already posthumous after David's death..
Wow, what a piece of art. While some songs need to grow a bit (but get even better with every spin), there are also instant "hits" on it, and out of them this would be my current favourtite song:

And I mean my current favourite song in general, not only from WOY.
It has been a long time that I listened to a record where music and lyrics made so much sense together, and the complete "art" creates such an intense melancholic atmosphere.... the lyrics are very "deep", very depressing (especcially considerings the mainmans death just before th record was released), but without any cheese metaphorics or halfassed-suicide-dreams. These are degredading most Suicide Black Metal Bands down to a childrens-birthday party at McDonalds.
From the other thread, I take there are some fans of this band here - Do yourself a favour and get that record. It IS worth it.
i actually picked this up yesterday. i havnt had a chance to spin it, but im really looking forward to it
