Ovid's Withering Scryers Of The Ibis on 2LP
Unique Leader Records is pleased to unleash the reissue of Scryers Of The Ibis, the debut full-length from Florida-based theatrical blackened tech metallers and recent label signees, Ovid's Withering. Recorded by Ovid's Withering with additional mixing and mastering by Aaron Smith (7 Horns 7 Eyes, Jeff Loomis) and stunning cover design by Julius Stiawan, Scryers Of The Ibis was originally self-released in 2013 and reaped critical accolades from underground media outlets globally for its eerily enticing blend of diabolic discord.
Greg Kennelty of Metal Injection christened the twelve-track offering, “one of the best, most well-written, well-played, well-produced, killer records of 2013,” “a masterpiece,” and “a testament to creativity and the willingness to go above and beyond what your contemporaries are doing.”
Named in part after Publius Ovidius, more commonly identified as Ovid, a Roman poet best known for the Metamorphoses, a 15-book continuous mythological narrative and among the most important sources of classical mythology, Ovid's Withering incorporates all the prime assets of death metal, symphonic black metal and metalcore into their own refined identity. While others dream, Ovid's Withering forges grandiose visions into tangible art.
