For those who don't know, Los-Angeles based prog metal band Witherfall have been getting high praises since their album "Nocturnes and Requiems" was released February 2017. I must admit, I had not heard of this band until today, but I am glad to have stumbled upon it. Yes, I am not the biggest "prog/power metal" fan, so when I thoroughly enjoy a band who are in that sub-genre of metal, you can be sure prog metal fans will probably love it. The first comparison that came to mind was Nevermore. Give it a listen and tell me if you agree.
On February 01st, 2018 Witherfall released an epic video for the single "Portrait". Aside from the song oozing talent from all angles, it features a creepy naked ghost woman, so how the hell can you go wrong?
The band commented: “Witherfall never settles for anything less than perfection in everything we do. We have spent the last year searching for the right video production team. A writer/director who shared our epic vision of "Portrait". With multiple locations, a cast and crew of over a dozen as well as adverse filming conditions notwithstanding; it was already an ambitious effort to do a music video like this in the current climate of the industry. To us, it was either go big or go home. We want to thank all of the cast and crew that handled "The Shining" like conditions of the “Portrait” music video production.”
According to their label, "Witherfall have finished the song writing process for their eagerly awaited second album, and are about to enter the studio in the upcoming weeks. The yet untitled new album is set to be released in autumn 2018."
I look forward to it, but in the mean time I will enjoy this new find. And you can enjoy the video for "Portrait" below.
