Withered Earth- Forgotten Sunrise (1997)

Withered Earth

Forgotten Sunrise (1997)

Genre- Death Metal

Dark and slightly twisted death metal from upstate New York. Experimental through out and very doom driven at times, heavy as all fuckin hell too. Excellent vocals and atmosphere here as well, you'll see what I'm talking about when the clean acoustics appear to ruin your day. I've got an original copy of the Cryptic Productions release in the collection to jam on so thats the cover I posted above, as you can see by the YouTube clip below there is a more popular re-release cover that you may be more familiar with. Either way, both of them suck and dont do this beast of an album any kind of representative justice. This is an often overlooked gem for sure and definitely something worth banging your head to.
