Withermoon  are  a  band  from  Santa  Anna,  California  that  plays  a  very  raw,  old  school  and  misanthropic  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2022  album  "A  Testament  To  Our  Will"  which  was  released  by  Adirondack  Black  Mass.

  A  very  dark  yet  distorted  sound  starts  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  heavier  direction  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast b eats  which  also  gives  the  album  more  of  a  raw  feeling.  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  and  the  music  is  also  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  90's  era.

  Melodies  can  also  be  heard  in  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  while  the  songs  also  add  in  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  along  with  some  growls  also  being  added  into  certain  sections  of  the  album,  a  couple  of  the  tracks  are  also  very  long  and  epic  in  length  and  all  of  the  music  also  sticks  to  a  heavier  direction.

  Withermoon  plays  a  style  of  black  metal t hat  is  very  raw,  misanthropic  and  old  school  sounding  in  the  second  wave  tradition.  The  production  sounds  very dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  misanthropy  and  nihilism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Withermoon  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw,  old  school  and  misanthropic  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRQACKS  INCLUDE  "Reason  For  Existence"  "Dregs  of  God"  and  "Testament  To  My  Will".  8  out  of  10. - occultblackmetalzine
