Formed by members of Social Infestation (the cult Atlanta deathgrind band that also contained members of Mastodon), Withered have spent decades ignoring genre classification with their self-described "tortured blackened doom/death". Their atonal and claustrophobic sound finds common ground between Neurosis and Ulcerate, demonstrating those bands aren't as disparate as one might think.

I spoke with guitarist/vocalist Dan Caycedo about his musical history before Withered, what led him to join the band, and the challenges that come with playing Withered's music. We also discussed the writing and recording of the latest Withered album, Verloren, and what the band has planned for the future.

My thanks to Dan for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
