WYTHERSAKE Release New 'INIQUITY' Lyric Video!


Wythersake US blackened-death metal hottest newcomers Wythersake have released a lyric video for the song 'Iniquity', taken from their debut album 'Antiquity', set to be released on March 26, 2021, via Scarlet Records.



This is how the band commented: "'Iniquity' touches on the belief that you are wicked and a lost sinner from the moment you are born. The process of teaching this forces people to accept this uncritically – questioning the belief itself is considered a transgression, which creates a type of echo chamber. Ultimately, breaking away from the bonds of that type of indoctrination is a very liberating and rewarding experience."

Combining the sophisticated and progressive/melodic side of the 90's Scandinavian death-black masters with sheer American fierceness and frenzy, Wythersake is the band that the extreme metal scene has been craving for a long time.

Lyrically, the concept of 'Antiquity' revolves around apostasy and Gnosticism: in the early Middle Ages, personal spiritual growth and knowledge and the eradication of ignorance became considered heretical and were replaced by salvation through unquestioning faith and piety and a focus on eradication of sin (by any means necessary). Wythersake is the much-needed antidote: an exhilarating symphony of destruction that will elevate your soul.

The evocative artwork by Alvaro Valverde/AV Ilustración beautifully depicts the themes of the album, which will be released in a 4-panel digipack.
