Against the Seasons: Cold Winter Songs from the Dead Summer Heat is the first release and only EP from the black metal/doom metal group Woods of Ypres. It was recorded in August 2002 at Spectre Sound Studios in Tecumseh, Ontario. It's Woods of Ypres' only album featuring founding members Brian McManus & Aaron Palmer, and their only CD on which David Gold doesn't contribute any vocals or guitar work.

This album was remastered by producer & then-bassist Dan Hulse in 2005 and re-released with new artwork that summer. A limited run of the album on cassette was also issued that year through Night Birds Records. The whole EP (save for "Awaiting the Inevitable") was later re-issued as part of Woods of Ypres' 2009 compilation CD Independent Nature 2002-2007. Each song on the album would remain a frequent addition in Woods of Ypres setlists to varying degrees since this EP was released.
