Treat yourself to another dose of Dark Melodic Metal with a brand new song and lyric video from L.A.’s Witherfall by checking out the track Another Face,
The band comments: «As with most Withefall I songs Another Face was written with just an acoustic guitar, pen & paper and copious amounts of red wine. 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».
Another Face is the third single taken from Curse Of Autumn, the upcoming album from Witherfall that is scheduled for a worldwide street date on March 5th, 2021 with the US vinyl being available April 2nd, 2021. Don’t miss the cinematic video for As I Lie Awake,
As I Lie Awake
Falling feels just like flying
All my pain melts away
The illusions of my perception
Are left chained to yesterday
Every second that I forget to fall
Every vision seems unreal
I open my eyes to face the world alone
What have we done, how has it come to this?
Every second feels just like eternity
And now it’s done, everything fades to grey and dies
And we’re alone…
A rapture of water I’m drowning in fear
The tide can’t wash over our sins
They gave us an altar without any faith
And I question as I lie awake.
Now my life laid out before me
Left to face another day
Turning on my past reflections
Every corner looks just the same
Every moment that I fail to recall
My past now fades away
I open my eyes and know that I’m alone
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 get longer it is probably the perfect time for Curse Of Autumn to unfold.
