Treat yourself to another dose of dark melodic metal with a brand new track from WITHERFALL.
The band has shared the lyric video for “Another Face.” Watch and listen here.
“As with most Witherfall songs, ‘Another Face’ was written with just an acoustic guitar, pen and paper, and copious amounts of red wine,” the band says. “However, once in the studio, the track really came to life. Some of the best memories from the recording sessions were working out the outro of the song after the solo. Between guitar and vocal harmonies and subtle harmonic shifts, the ending is such a highlight of the record. Jon Schaffer and Jim Morris really brought a lot of energy to these sessions. For everyone involved, it was a highly creative time. This track is a great testament to what can happen when everyone on a production team gets to shine a little light on a song.”
Witherfall previously released the cinematic video for “As I Lie Awake.” The clip was directed by Zev Deans (Ghost, Behemoth, Chelsea Wolfe, St. Vincent.)
Witherfall’s Curse of Autumn is scheduled for a worldwide street date of March 5, 2021, with the U.S. vinyl available April 2. Pre-order it here.
What could possibly be a better time of the year to dive headfirst into dark, melodic metal? While the shadows of winter are creeping up upon us and the nights are getting longer, it’s the perfect time for Curse of Autumn to unfold.
The album art is once again a hand-painted masterpiece by the legendary Kristian Wåhlin, the fourth painting in the WITHERFALL series.
