The Hungering Void
Style: Black Metal
Release date: June 1st 2010

For me, black tends to fall into two major categories: A. Really annoying black metal and B. Intelligent, progrssive black metal. Withershin from Sweden belong mostly to the latter category.

With its just three songs, 'The Hungering Void' is a small statement of both furious brutality and contemplative moments that melt into a whole experience.

I like when music is produced and this wee album luckily has a fine sound. I also like when there is variation in music - and, again, the Swedish quartet is guilty of this as they unleash their cannonade of black/death metal with the quiet moments.

Thumbs up!
