Austere's first album "Withering Illusions and Desolation" will see a re-issue via Eisenwald Records on October 29th, 2013. The following press release was issued about the coming re-issue:
"Originally released in 2007, Austere's 'Withering Illusions and Desolation' debut appeared seemingly out of nowhere and soon came to be considered a modern classic of suicidal, heartwrenching black metal.
"The duo's roots run deep in the enigmatic Australian black metal underground, but here on Withering Illusions and Desolation, Austere crafted hysterical yet hauntingly melodic epics of absolute anguish and utter despair, taking the foundation laid down by Burzum to new heights/depths.
"Now, at long last, a proper and final re-issue of this first Austere album arrives courtesy of Eisenwald, with new band-selected artwork, new mastering, and packaged in a six-panel digipack: their distant and desolate black metal has never been presented better."

Australian black metal act Austere called it quits back in 2010, but member Tim Yatras has now uploaded several instrumental versions of tracks from the band's final full-length. Tim comments:
"For anyone interested I have uploaded instrumental mixes of the entire 'To Lay Like Old Ashes' album to Soundcloud. This is an earlier mix than what appeared on the final product, and it's interesting to hear some things that were lost in the final mix!"
Germ has posted an orchestral reworking online of the track "Just For A Moment" from the now-defunct band Austere, which broke up back in 2010. Listen to the song in the player below.
Unfortunately for Austere fans, the video also included a statement from Tim Yatras that "Austere will not be getting back together, so please don't get the wrong idea."
Depressive black metal band Austere recently called it quits. Here's the vague update from the band:
“It is with much sadness that today, May 19th, 2010, we announce the end of Austere. We would like to thank everyone who has helped and supported us over the years, and we hope you’ll continue to support us in our current and future endeavors.”
