Staff review by
Witherscape is yet another Swanö project and one which offers progressive death metal thematically and aesthetically caste in a gothic atmosphere. With a keyboard rich texture The Inheritance naturally receives the wealth of inspiration the name Swanö has come to guarantee, as it benefits from a structural integrity shown in the likes of Moontower and Edge Of Sanity's releases.

Dan Swanö cannot be a surprise. But I didnt know about this project until a few weeks ago, my fault...
This album i a very good summary of what Dan did in his unbelievable career, and the quality of song in definitely hi.
The only "Dead For A Day" is worth the purchase of the album.

Sounds like Dan woke up one day and said "Alright, let's pretend to be Opeth". Can't really complain about that.

Great one, I like this one since I heard song from MS news. I like this I like how dan sings he should do clean vox, it works just fine, emotionally it works, IMO band should replace name prog whit something else , many cases name prog scares away, I have no intense listen DT , never works, as many prog, some works as this and FW... prog should be judged individually, rest of genres 80% can be good, in prof maybe 5% , anyway this is good one
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

I kinda always thought, back from when I listened to this album that Swano is the one who is playing the guitars here considering how insanely cool and un-fucking-believable it is. But whoever that Ragnar guy is, I'd say he showed how good Swedish progressive melodic death metal can really be. /Respect.
