The Skinny: Quebec City progressive metal/melodic death metal band Worth Dying For released their new, 12 track full-length album Tears and Ashes on December 14, 2011. This new Antoine Baril produced/mixed and Jonas Kjellgren mastered effort shows these French Canadians not only improving in overall song-writing and structure, but also in complexity and intensity. While the disc has been available for a few months now, we’re pleased to present you with this exclusive world premiere download of the lead off track, “Haunted”.
Clocking in at 5:24, “Haunted” sets the tone for the remainder of the album. It has a wonderful symphonic buildup that instantly peaks the listener’s interest and at the 1 minute mark comes blasting in at full throttle. Full of melodic vocal harmonies, brutal growls and excellent instrumentation, the song is simply rad. Bred on a wide-ranging number of differing bands, the members of Worth Dying For have taken their varied influences and herein created something cool.
