Withered Premieres New Lyric Video

Atlanta's Withered premieres a new lyric video for "To Glimpse Godliness", taken from the band's 2016 album "Grief Relic". Explains Withered:

"The lyrics are a continuation from ‘Distort, Engulf’ (Grief Relic). These songs pair up to illustrate becoming overwhelmed by the frustration with the mortal limitations of human existence. It ponders your willingness to cast off this physical existence and achieve an aethereal sense of timelessness & limitlessness. To perceive the universe as a blank nothingness from a lone, single consciousness is to glimpse godliness."
