L.A. melodic metal crew Witherfall have a flare for the dramatic. Leading up to the release of their new and third album, Curse of Autumn (which is out today, March 5th) the all-star band — featuring members of Sanctuary, Iced Earth and more — have shared a gleefully blasphemous visualizer for "The Other Side of Fear" and demonic clip for "As I Lie Awake."
Their latest video in the Curse of Autumn cycle, "And They All Blew Away," continues their dark cinematic ambitions.
Directed by Brendan McGowan (Imperial Triumphant, Frozen Soul) and produced by Zev Deans (Ghost, Behemoth, Chelsea Wolfe, St. Vincent.), the video unfolds like a chilly haunted house flick and follows a young woman as she explores a seemingly abandoned farmhouse. Watch above to see what horrors she discovers.
"So, this is a total edit of this song," the band wrote in a statement. "For those who dare, there is a 15+ minute version on the record that is by far the most progressive thing Witherfall has ever written and features an incredible drum performance by the legendary Marco Minnemann as well as an amazing display of eclectic bass techniques by Anthony Crawford. Going into the songwriting of Curse of Autumn, we always want to try and outdo ourselves with certain tracks and this goal was to write a song that took the listener on an unparalleled musical journey. This abridged version is set to cinema by UnholyRoman [Brendan McGowan] and is shrouded in mystery much like the meaning of the song."
Curse of Autumn was produced by Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth, Demons & Wizards) along with Witherfall vocalist Joseph Michael (also Sanctuary) and guitarist Jake Dreyer (also Iced Earth/Demons & Wizards). Recording and mixing was done by Jim Morris (Savatage, Iced Earth, Kamelot, Death) with Tom Morris assuming mastering duties.
