Review:Withers-Self Titled EP

2012

Withers are a fairly new band from Austria who are very likely to turn heads with this debut self titled EP. Featuring 3 songs of crushing chaotic hardcore, this band brings to mind the spirit of late 90's metalcore classic albums such as Cave In's Until Your Heart Stops and Converge's Petitioning The Empty Sky with it's breakneck pace and plethora of meaty riffs to digest. Like the EP itself I am going to keep this review short and sweet: put simply, anyone into the aforementioned bands/albums as well as likeminded bands such as Cursed, Rise And Fall, Trap Them and others would do well to check out the two songs streaming now on Withers bandcamp (linked below) and consider purchasing a copy of the release (also below). Very excited to hear more material from this very promising up and coming band.
