Withering Heights


Black metal band find their own path

With the number of Black Metal bands out there increasing by the hour, it’s becoming hard to differentiate the leaders from the followers. With a penchant for intelligent and dynamic song writing, Atlanta’s AMIDST THE WITHERING stands out as a viable force in the genre. While shades of a few influential acts may appear throughout the disc (Emperor, Dimmu Borgir), “The Dying Of The Light” is largely a beast unto itself. Boasting a production quality that ranks right up there with metal’s top names and an overall vibe that’s deeply rooted in the underground.

The Dying Of The Light” succeeds for three primary reasons: (1) Good song writing; (2) a natural blend of influences; and (3) an honest delivery. As the band says “Amidst the Withering is a beautiful coalescence of black and doom metal that is both crushing and energetic. We have aimed to weave together elements of conflicting emotion ranging from ultimate despair to blind rage and it has created a sound that pulls at the heart and then smashes it upon the rocks. ATW consists of heavy dark symphonic elements, crushing guitars, enticing rhythms and dynamic vocals. We all wither, so why not wither with us?”
