Wode are the most unlikely of things a black metal band from Manchester.
For a city of its size Manchester hasn’t produced enough metal over the years but Wode buck this trend. This is dense, fast and filthy black metal that hints at Gorgoroth with the symphonic edge that could hold its own against the Norwegians.
Suitably named after the body paint used by the druids the band are tapping into a very British pagan tradition. They have a self released cassette from here and some more music from here a very low internet profile. Initially a two piece the line up has recently expanded top a 4 piece.
