Some past praise for WITHERED:

“A fusion of black metal, doom, grind and crust that somehow evoked both lacerating primitivism and next-level sophistication.” — Decibel

“An unholy combo of death/doom, crusty grindcore, blazing black metal and dexterous post-rock.” — Decibel

“Withered combine a love for Norwegian black metal, grindcore, Swedish melodic death metal and reverberating doom. They celebrate everything that is righteous about metal from the last 15 years.” — Metal Hammer

“A combination of rampaging blackened metal, wallowing, doom-styled heaviosity and punk-charged urgency, Withered set a new standard for contemporary metal.” — Metal Hammer

“Dense, lurching doom…songs as bleak and fraught with palpable tension as a blackened tornado funnel cloud on a distant horizon.” — Revolver

“Withered delight in infusing their love of the chilly blasting of black metal and the lumbering fury of death metal with the forward-thinking prog sludge perfected by Mastodon.” — Kerrang
