Witherfall: Armed with acoustic guitar, red wine and pen and paper!

Witherfall - Another Face

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.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5741 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
