The colossal new album on Prosthetic Records from Atlanta, GA’s WITHERED. Their most rich and decadently extreme release to date fusing avantgarde black metal, crust, grind and doom and heavy progressive, almost post-rock textures with grand, claustrophobic atmospheres. This is extreme metal at its most forward thinking without losing any of the guttural energy. Recommended for fans of Mastodon, Deathspell Omega, Neurosis and epic, cutting edge black metal.
Withered was formed back in 2004 from the ashes of Atlanta crust / grind band, Social Infestation, which Withered’s Mike Thompson and former guitarist Chris Freeman started with Troy Sanders of Mastodon. Withered released their debut album in 2005 on Germany’s Lifeforce Records before signing to Prosthetic and releasing their second album, “Folie Circulaire” in 2008. Over the past few years Withered have toured Europe with Mastodon and High On Fire, toured the US with Watain, Mayhem and Dismember before entering the studio with Phillip Cope (Kylesa, Baroness) to record their third and latest album “Dualitas”, presented here.
