Formed in 1995, Withered Earth emerged from the ashes of "Disgorged" through Adam Bonacci and Chris Burgio. Possessing lyrics that deal with the true horror of real life, Withered Earth creates music that is not typical death metal. Punishing blast beats, which at times are more common to grind or hardcore, combine with dark and heavy guitar riffs. Adam Bonacci's vocals are disturbing and unforgiving. A live performance of Withered Earth is a chaotic orgy instigated by the aggression of the music, thereby possessing the musicians who play it and ultimately their audience.
