After several years of silence, North Carolina black metal entity WORSEN returns with the long-awaited follow up to 2014's Blood EP in the form of a violent and somber 40 minute full length album called Cursed to Witness Life. Worsen mastermind and sole member Rick Contes speaks further on the new album, "If there was something I wasn't completely satisfied with I would trash it and start over. That's one of the reasons it took several years for this album to come together. The best riffs or sections of songs would naturally find their way back and there was more focus on guitars and song structure as a whole." Regarding the recording process he continues, "Just like previous releases, all vocals and instruments were recorded and/or programmed by me. For me this ones a pretty personal and cathartic record, so I wanted to put my best effort forward and cut no corners. It's something I started alone that I needed to finish alone."
