Witherscape, the new progressive metal outfit formed by Swedish singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Dan Swanö together with fellow Swedish multi-instrumentalist Ragnar Widerberg, has unveiled another new song off their debut concept album The Inheritance. You can now listen to "Dead For A Day" which is available through the lyric video below.
Expect the album to drop on July 29th in Europe and August 6th in North America via Century Media Records. Check out the first single "Astrid Falls" here and more album details over here.
Dan Swanö commented: "'Dead For A Day' is one of those songs that just wrote itself. I was strumming on the acoustic guitar one morning and it just poured out of my fingers. At first I had no idea what to do with the song since I felt it was perhaps a bit too commercial for Witherscape, but after I played the demo to Ragnar he insisted that it must be on the album! I love how the song moves between the mellow verses à la Crimson I & II to the more brutal, yet melodic chorus, in the tradition of 'Uncreation' and 'Twilight' through the groovy but 'undanceable' 9/8 section that leads to one of Ragnar's best guitar leads of the album."
