Wither On The Vine is the third full-length release by the Northern Irish doom metal band Darkest Era, and as it happens, this is only their first release in over eight years. So, has the enduring wait after those lengthy eight years actually been worth it? Well I'm sure you will be pleased to know that the answer from me is a strong and definite yes, it's certainly been well worth the wait; I mean, this could even well be a deserving contender for AOTY in my eyes.

A lot of times, listening to blackened death metal is a lot like waking up after a night of heavy drinking: you know you had a decent time, but you can’t remember much of it. - Mark Z.

Good vibes, mix between doom, post, heavy, prog and some raze. Well done album, more you listen more better it turns.

A Nice Guy
I'm really liking the style and sound of this band it's great stuff. It has some really striking melodies, great vocals, and a surprisingly perfect balance of doom, folk and heavy metal, and there's an elegance about it. The last three tracks in particular stood out for me most especially "The Ashen Plague".

Exactly what you say, with the exception that I cannot single out a favourite track. It's my album of the year by quite a margin. Gives me goosebumps.

I am obsessed with it, since it came out. It is the perfect blend of Primordial, Amorphis, and Atlantean Kodex with performances to die for.
