Chicago's Withering Soul has announced a record deal with Mortal Music for the release of "No Closure" on March 8th, 2011. "No Closure" was recorded and mixed by Chris Wisco (Novembers Doom, Michael Angelo Batio, Lazurus A.D.) at Belle City Sound (Racine, WI), and mastered at The Cutting Room (Sweden). Withering Soul commented on the album:

"As an attempt to characterize, the music may be described as a combination of symphonic black metal and melodic death metal...with some gothic overtones thrown in as well. Featuring carefully crafted songs full of interesting changes and climactic phrasings, the band delivers a mature sound that is not normally achieved on a first release. Also, as an underlying blue print, the band draws on influences from some of the finest in Scandinavian black metal before venturing off and establishing their own style. Throughout the album, you will find sinister yet majestic clean vocal melodies, catchy rhythms, and a haunting vibe that would make for an amazing soundtrack to a classic horror novel. As a special treat, guest backing vocals have been provided by Melissa Ferlaak (Echoterra/Visions of Atlantis/Aesma Daeva) on the songs 'Lifeless They Lie' and 'Unquiet.'"

The single "Tides of the Accursed" from the new album can be heard through this location. The track listing is as follows:

1. Night of the Revenant
