De Doden Hebben Het Goed II is a visceral experience that is tough to forget, an experience that show Wiegedood to be at the top of the genre and that is sure to blow many seasoned black metal acts out of the water
After being formed in 2014 by Levy Seynaeve (Amenra, Oathbreaker) as well as Wim Coppers and Gilles Demolder (both also in Oathbreaker) WIEGEDOOD quickly became a household name in the European extreme metal scene. Both of their previous albums, “De Doden Hebben Het Goed” and “De Doden Hebben Het Goed II”, as well as their furious and cathartic live performances made waves beyond the realms of black metal. In the past they have toured and played shows with the likes of Wolves In The Throne Room or High On Fire, just to mention a few. The final chapter of their trilogy, “De Doden Hebben Het Goed III”, was recorded by Christophe Dexters at House Rott Child in Herk-De-Stad, Belgium, and mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker) at Atomic Garden, East Palo Alto, CA. The cover, which was done by Stefaan Temmerman, also offers the perfect visual closure of the trilogy.
