BW&BK; has received the following update:"Chicago's extreme metal artists, WITHERING SOUL are proud to announce their signing with Mortal Music. With this signing, the band is set to release their label debut, No Closure, on March 8th with distribution via MVD Entertainment Group.
No Closure was recorded and mixed by Chris Wisco (NOVEMBERS DOOM, MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO, LAZARUS A.D.) at Belle City Sound in Racine, WI and mastered at The Cutting Room (Sweden). As an attempt to characterize, the music may be described as a combination of symphonic black metal and melodic death metal...with some gothic overtones thrown in as well. Featuring carefully crafted songs full of interesting changes and climactic phrasings, the band delivers a mature sound that is not normally achieved on a first release. Also, as an underlying blueprint, the band draws on influences from some of the finest in Scandinavian black metal before venturing off and establishing their own style. Throughout the album, you will find sinister yet majestic clean vocal melodies, catchy rhythms, and a haunting vibe that would make for an amazing soundtrack to a classic horror novel. As a special treat, guest backing vocals have been provided by Melissa Ferlaak (ECHOTERRA / ex-VISIONS OF ATLANTIS) on the songs 'Lifeless They Lie' and 'Unquiet'.
The group spent the past couple of years building up its momentum, while playing countless shows, and sharing the stage with the likes of ENSLAVED, DARK FUNERAL, FINNTROLL, SATYRICON, ABSU and HANZEL UND GRETYL.
Eager listeners can get a preview of the album on the band’s MySpace with the full length album single, 'Tides Of The Accursed'. The album is set for release on March 8th but is currently available for pre-sale at several websites including Amazon.com."
The tracklist is as follows:
'Night Of The Revenant'
'Phantasmal Chaos Divinity'
'Tides Of The Accursed'
'Possession Of Deception - Part II'
'Lifeless They Lie'
'Requiem Of Sorrow'
