The metal album of the year will be released on November 2nd, 2018. This is neither an exaggeration nor a subjective point of view. WITHERFALL’s out-of-nowhere debut album release “Nocturnes And Requiems” left many people speechless. The band’s well-balanced mix of virtuose musicianship, skilled song writing and real metal power did not only surprised the press, but left a real impact on the entire metal scene. Now comes “A Prelude To Sorrow”, WITHERFALL’s second album. If you think they cannot top the debut, think again. The prime combination of Jake Dreyer’s wicked guitar leads, Joseph Michael’s diverse vocals, the tight and powerful rhythm section makes “A Prelude To Sorrow” an album-of-the-year contender. This is challenging, daring, fresh and very powerful dark epic metal. Flawless. “A Prelude To Sorrow” is available as ltd. Digipak CD, deluxe gatefold 2LP (with etching on side D) and digitally. A first glimpse into the album will be out very soon.
