Witherfall have released a video for their overall fifth single, “The River.” The track is taken from their upcoming album, Curse of Autumn, out March 5th via Century Media Records. With songs “The Other Side of Fear,” “Another Face,” “As I Lie Awake,” and “The Last Scar,” these dark melodic metal giants are taking their third full-length effort to new heights. With their latest track, “The River,” it only excels what this group can do and highlights singer Joseph Michael’s excellent vocal delivery, making him stand out with the stronger vocalists in modern times. The track itself takes a dark and emotional turn and an overall softer side from the group, as the melancholy tune is about Joseph Micheal’s deceased father.
The band explains:
“‘The River’ is a song about singer Joseph Michael’s deceased father. It refers to the family fishing spot up near Thousand Islands by the Canadian border of New York State. During the recording, tears were shed… Hopefully this song honors JM’s father appropriately. R.I.P., Kenneth Martin Furney.”
