Formed in 2012 from several holdovers of well-established extreme metal bands, Deathwhite was created as means to explore new avenues for its members. In turn, the band's sound is heavily influenced by Katatonia, mid-90's Paradise Lost, Alcest, and early Anathema, creating a dark, melodic metal landscape without boundaries. The thread of melody, darkness, and memorable songwriting is the primary aim of Deathwhite, with lyrics exploring the pitfalls of existence, and organized religion.
released July 1, 2014
The Ethereal EP is the band’s first full sonic representation, recorded in the spring of 2014 with producer/engineer Matt Very at Very Tight Studios. An additional song, “A Burden to Carry,” is also included, having been recorded in the fall of 2013 during a separate studio session.
This is my favorite metal album of all time. The only bad thing is that the vocals are somewhat buried in the mix. Otherwise, the record perfectly blends a mix of metal genres with excellent songcraft. A record you'll listen to again and again. The Real Nick House
