Boston-based progressive black metal outfit Lord Almighty have announced their new album, ‘Wither,’ which is set for release on October 16, 2020. The LP marks the follow-up to the act’s 2015 first record, ‘Paths.’
Here’s more info from the recent reveal:
Although the band’s base inclination is rooted in black metal past and present, their love for NWOBHM, sludge, hardcore, blues rock, and more elevates Wither far beyond being merely another black metal release with nothing new to offer.
If you could fathom Darkthrone, Kvelertak, and Trash Talk joining forces with Mastodon, ZZ Top, and Thin Lizzy, you’d arrive at the expansive and fluid approach to cross-genre pollination Lord Almighty are incredibly adept at.
On Wither, Lord Almighty has transcended genre norms and created an epic world all their own that will surely be loved by many metalheads.
The band themselves added:
Wither is an album that really was written over a few years. There were plenty of experiences along the way that continued our descent into madness.
It was a hazy time looking through smoke and double vision. Conceptually we had a lot of different emotions and life experiences that culminated to what you hear.
If you listen hard enough, you might even hear the crackle of the fire in our building where we lived or the cops pounding on the doors. Or maybe even the dreams in which we envisioned when we found ourselves without homes.
