Witherscape: premieres "Dead For A Day" lyric video on Decibel Magazine.com
WITHERSCAPE, the stunning new atmospheric and progressive death metal outfit formed by Swedish singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer extraordinaire Dan Swanö and fellow Swedish multi-instrumentalist Ragnar Widerberg, will release their debut album The Inheritance August 6 in North America (July 29 in Europe) via Century Media Records. In anticipation of The Inheritance's release, WITHERSCAPE has now premiered a lyric video for the album track "Dead for a Day" on Decibel Magazine.com. To watch the video, click the link here.

The Inheritance track-listing:
1. Mother Of The Soul
2. Astrid Falls
3. Dead For A Day
4. Dying For The Sun
5. To The Calling Of Blood And Dreams
6. The Math Of The Myth

9. The Inheritance
WITHERSCAPE marks the long overdue return of Dan Swanö as an active composer and recording artist in the world of extreme metal, after having mostly been involved with mixing in the studio the past years. While The Inheritance is not purely a death metal release, it showcases both the heavier and mellower sides of Swanö's creativity, and should consequently not only please fans of his earlier efforts like Moontower or the EDGE OF SANITY catalogue, but also attract fans of progressively atmospheric contemporary metal in the vein of OPETH, KATATONIA or AMORPHIS.
