Witherfall kondigt nieuw album + nieuwe single met video aan

De uit Los Angeles afkomstige donkere melodieuze metal outfit Witherfall presenteert met trots hun vierde volledige album Sounds Of The Forgotten, uit op 31 mei 2024 via DeathWave Records. Ze brengen eveneens een nieuwe single uit, met een videoclip!

Over hun album Sounds Of The Forgotten: "We found ourselves writing really depressing, melancholy songs about how just disappointed we were with all the work we put into Curse of Autumn and then going through the pandemic," says frontman/songwriter Joseph Michael. "Before that, we thought nothing was going to stop us. Then, something did. We felt a bit defeated. So, that's how Sounds Of The Forgotten started. But we got out of that quickly. The songs we ended up writing were empowering. We have songs with negative emotions, but the overarching theme is moving forward and perseverance. That's the epitome of Sounds Of The Forgotten."

Over hun nieuwe single Ceremony Of Fire: "Ceremony of Fire is quintessential Witherfall. This song features elements that are cornerstones of the Witherfall sonic landscape from dark haunting hooks, to eclectic  musical twist and turns. For the fans of our debut album Nocturnes And Requiems you will be very pleased with this. The Video is a great representation of the lyrical theme. Filmed in part inside the ritual chamber at The Crooked Path in Burbank California, the video represents the harsh realities of the artists path."

Vele factoren hebben Witherfall's aanpak van Sounds Of The Forgotten beïnvloed en geïnspireerd. Het kleurthema van het album laat een andere kant van Witherfall's vierde album zien. De Blake Armstrong cover art (In Flames, Megadeth, Kataklysm, Harry Potter, Wednesday) wordt vaak geassocieerd met ambitie, macht en vorstelijkheid en biedt een blik op en een visueel tegenwicht voor de muziek op Sounds Of The Forgotten.
