Macabre & Withered In San Antonio

After leaving a trail of dead bodies across North America with Exhumed, Cephalic Carnage, and Withered, the minstrels of murder — Macabre came to San Antonio as the headline act. While Exhumed and Cephalic Carnage didn’t follow in their “nefarious” footsteps, Withered stayed in tow, leaving their native Peach state for a just a few more days.

Without the four-band-touring ensemble, the Korova club (named after the milk bar in “A Clockwork Orange”) overloaded the bill with local talent. All the bands that played were good, but as small clubs so often do, the local bands seemed to snatch a few minutes from the headliner.

The club opened at 7 P.M.—and unheard of early time for a club. The serial killer artwork and memorabilia that lined the walls known as “Sinister Art Exhibition” was sort of given the opening time slot, even though serial killer-obsessed patrons could bring in all the madness anytime throughout the night. Without a band to contend with, the owner of said art pieces became the featured act.

In some circles, San Antonio wears the title “Metal Capital of the World.” This distinction rings true, in part, when observing Korova’s location next to another metal club, Bonds 007. Of course, the droves of metal heads that come to shows, especially death metal shows, may have something to do with that dubbing. San Antone’s famous river walk sits on the other side of the Korova, which offers outdoor recreation to kill time before your favorite band hits the stage.

Frequenters of live extreme metal should know Withered. Over the past couple of years, the group has never seemed to stop gigging. I saw the them open for Danzig and Watain, so this was the third time I’ve seen Withered in the past year. With each performance, I gain more and more respect for this band.

Withered plays an eclectic mix of death, black and doom metal that keeps their music dynamic. Whether slow or fast, each part is catchy, although sometimes redundant. Even though the group had been in a van for three weeks, they seemed at the top of their game. If Withered opens a bill and you have never heard of them, make sure to check out these guys.

Macabre took its time setting up. The group had technical difficulties due to a PA system and other issues. The same PA caused sound problems throughout the set. While standing at the bar, I couldn’t hear Corporate Death’s intros to each song. The bar could not have been more than 100 feet away. The gruesome details he emitted from his wireless microphone came out as a jumbled mess of half-words. I didn’t have this problem while standing just a few feet from the stage. Of course, at that distance I could hear everything he said without the use of his mic. More...

Withered Comments On Upcoming Tour Dates

Blackened doom Georgian act Withered has confirmed a slew of shows this spring, including appearances at MACrock and New England Metal Fest, as well as dates with Krallice, and some headlining shows. Withered continue to support "Dualitas," which was released in October of 2010 and made Decibel's Top 40 Albums of the Year list. Since then, the band has supported Danzig on his "Blackest of the Black Tour," and toured with label mates, Skeletonwitch.

Singer/guitarist Mike Thompson commented on the April dates: "Our tour dates this April will harbor a monsoon of dynamics, venues, and participants. It feels very chaotic, just the way we love to work. It'll begin with a one-off date April 1st as we participate in the return of the MACRock festival this year. It'll be rewarding to bring our new music to this part of the country again, which we've neglected unintentionally for several years now. Following that, we've also been invited to participate in NEMF once again. This is always a good opportunity for Withered to bring our music to more diverse crowds than we're used to. Plus, we'll get to share the stage with some great bands and friends as well.

"After that we have a mix of headlining dates and a northeast US/Canadian run with Krallice. We've been talking about doing something together for quite a few years now so it's great to see this materialize. We'll be offering quite a mix of withered material for these dates from all three albums. We're excited about playing some songs from 'Memento Mori' that haven't been performed in several years in addition to reaching into the deeper compositions from 'Folie Circulaire' and 'Dualitas.' It will feel great to be on the road again."

The dates are as follows:

4/1 Harrison, VA- Blue Nile (MACrock)
4/15 Wilmington, DE- Mojo 13 (w/ Dying Fetus)
4/16 Worcester, MA- The Palladium, NE Metal and Hardcore Fest
4/19 Trenton, NJ- Championship Bar and Grill
4/20 Kingston, NY- The Basement
4/22 Buffalo, NY- Broadway Joe's
4/23 Rochester, NY- Montage Music Hall
4/24 Allston, MA- Great Scott #
4/25 Montreal, QC- Katacombes #
4/26 Toronto, ON- Sneaky Dee's #
4/27 Cleveland, OH- Now That's Class #
4/29 Baltimore, MD- Talking Head #
5/1 Frederick, MD- Krug's Place
5/2 Richmond, VA- Strange Matter

New Withered Song Posted Onlined For Free Download

Atlanta blackened doom metal band WITHERED has launched “Extinguished With the Weary,” the lead track from their upcoming album, “Dualitas,” due October 26th, as part of the new “Metal Swim” collection, presented by Scion A/V and Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. The track is available exclusively as a free download at this location starting today.

“Dualitas” was recorded by KYLESA’s Phillip Cope at the Jam Room in Columbia, SC. The CD and vinyl versions of the album have different covers, both of which were created by Paul Romano (Mastodon, Trivium, The Acacia Strain), who also did the cover for “Folie Circulaire.”

Guitarist/vocalist Mike Thompson commented on the track, “We chose ‘Extinguished With The Weary,' because this song really showcases some of the newer styling to be experienced on ‘Dualitas.’ It is actually the last song we wrote for the album and we always have a tendency to gravitate towards our newest music when given a choice. We are always looking ahead. This song in particular deals with this same concept. It is about letting go of your emotional & moral foundation. Casting away all the conditioning forced upon you by society, family, friends, etc. so you can redevelop your own reality and approach to life. It’s about finding the freedom to, and eliminating any fear of, establishing a pure existence for yourself without repercussion. Also, it’s really heavy and nasty; a really good listen.”
