Conan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. Remember that sentence, for it is writ large in virgin blood on the walls of the forgotten temple of Bol-Krastor, deep in the steaming forests of forgotten Lemuria. Conan, a monumentally brutal three piece (in the grand tradition of all the hallowed three pieces through time) hold a sinew-tight line and an iron-grip command over the uber-synchronised powerchord changes and tempo-shifts of the anti-holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two weary yet defiant men have the task of vocalising wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan’s metalized bombast. They bear it well, for the task is immense.
Hear the roar of battle. Smell the stench of split blood. A thousand heads piled high like a grim mound of suffering - a blasphemy to nature. Hail Conan!
From the antediluvian shores of the murky Hudson arises a new force in the world of doom metal. Articulate, elegant and ridiculously fucking heavy, Witchkiss are part of a growing movement coming out of upstate New York in the world of crushingly loud and punishing music. Built around raw emotion, sonic poetry and a sense of longing for a life lost, there is a haunting majesty to the work of Witchkiss. These Hudson Valley NY natives are fusing the sounds of bands like Subrosa, Yob and Isis to craft sounds that contemplates the neverending cycle of life and death.
Their current offering, The Austere Curtains Of Our Eyes is a journey through depressed unrealities, punishing truths, and a sense that something better can be made of this world. Founded by Scott Prater, a longtime metalhead, and his partner Amber Burns, a veritable novice on drums, this debut release has been a long time in the making. Building on the interplay between eerie female vocals and crushing growls, the groove driven Witchkiss can’t help but to fascinate. This is the kind of doom metal that fans of Cult of Luna and Helms Alee can’t help but to love.
Ready to take on the world with an appetite for constant touring, loud riffs and the passion to tackle just about every festival they can, Witchkiss understand what it takes to grow in the insular art doom community. With music based on raw and uncomfortable emotions, Witchkiss are striving to bring their craft to the next level. Coming out of a cold dark place to shower the world in volume and a potent vision, Witchkiss are hungry to prove that The Austere Curtains Of Our Eyes deserves a place in the doom metal canon.
UNEARTHLY TRANCE summons forth V; an electric, urban funeral drone and their most epic full-length to date. With V the trio has come full circle; combining the expansive leanings of 'Electrocution' and 'The Trident' with the sparing, brooding doom of their earliest works. UNEARTHLY TRANCE's unwavering dedication to their principle's and craft has yielded some of America's best metal with V.
