Withered - Dualitas (CD)
Catalog number: 10092-2
Seriously, how do you knock a band like Withered? They’re everything most North American bands aren’t, which in essence, is forward-thinking, hard-working, and under the aid of an unlimited scope. In fact, that’s what hurts these guys – sound-wise, they’re too broad and unwilling to cop-out to one direct style, as the constant collision of black metal and doom metal might be hard too hard for some to grasp. Dualitas often finds itself in that reclusive little sphere of atmospheric black metal that requires spurts of melody to keep things moving, and that’s what Withered does.
