Originally released on cassette in 2004 in a limited edition of 100 copies, Badb is one of the earliest releases from the Saskatchewan-based Black Metal/Noise duo Wold. The nine tracks around the mythology of the war goddess: the specter of doom that lurks at the edge of the battlefield. Beginning at the heart of a roiling black blizzard, Badb proceeds through a charred nightmare soundscape of icy, corroded Black Metal riffs, fractured blasting, melancholic melodies blurred and smeared into malevolent new shapes, and scathing witch-screams ripping through the blackness, all drowned in Merzbow-ian levels of feedback and distortion abuse.
