Witherfall:  WITHERFALL release ODE TO DESPAIR acoustic version

US dark melodic metal act WITHERFALL is releasing an alternate arrangement of “Ode to Despair”. The original recording can be found on WITHERFALLs latest album “A Prelude To Sorrow” and is now going to be released as an acoustic version on the “Vintage EP”, which will be out on March 22nd and available during the group's upcoming European tour.


“Being invited as special guests on Sonata Arctica's 'Acoustic Adventures' tour we knew we had to re-imagine some of our songs to realize the vibe of the tour. Our partners at Century Media came up with a brilliant idea of recording a few of these and including them on the upcoming 'Vintage EP'. Being our most successful single to date "Ode to Despair" was the first one thought of. The track was recorded in a split session bookending a tour of Japan with Kamelot. Vocals and guitars were literally followed by a 5am flight to the Far East, then after the tour we headed straight from the airport to the studio. This is also the first song to incorporate new keyboardist; Alex Nasla. We also had the privilege of working with James "Timbali" Cornwell (Earth Wind & Fire, Janet Jackson) who provided the percussion that really makes this track standout.”
