Deathwhite nous régale avec un métal mélancolique à la Katatonia de haute tenue. Solitary Martyr a beau être un EP d’un peu moins de vingt-cinq minutes – pour cinq pistes entre quatre et cinq minutes – il offre de la qualité.
This album is amazing, aggressive, but also regretful. The lyrics have their moments of fist bumping, but overall I have no idea what the guy is singing about. All I know is, I can listen to this for hours nonstop.
Favorite track: Solitary Martyr.
A year after the release of their well-received debut Ethereal EP, dark metal outfit Deathwhite has returned with the Solitary Martyr EP.
The product of increased focus on vocal melodies and hooks, Solitary Martyr displays a keener sense of depth and versatility than its predecessor. Recorded by Brette Ciammara at Studio 344, the production is more robust, as are the riffs, retaining a feel and flare akin to the bands that were so crucial inspiring Deathwhite in the first place.
Solitary Martyr will be self-released by the band in August of 2015. A special, limited edition version of the album will be made available on CD, with the aforementioned Ethereal EP tacked on as bonus tracks.
