So, two things: First, Dead Witches are a band. Second, their debut album is coming early in 2017 via Heavy Psych Sounds. Those are both crucial pieces of information. On a secondary level, it’s worth noting that Dead Witches are fronted by Virginia Monti, most recently heard from at the fore of the cultishly strong Psychedelic Witchcraft and drummed along their dirge march by Mark Greening, whose work in With the Dead and Ramesses is killer enough that I don’t even feel compelled to list the band he was in before either of them. You can see it in the PR wire info anyway, if you feel like cheating. But yeah, some pedigree to go around here.
They’re keeping mostly mum so far as regards details of their forthcoming debut album, which, again, Heavy Psych Sounds will have out early next year. That means no title, songs — other than “Ouija,” teased below — song titles, recording info, other background, etc. But you can get a glimpse of the vibe they’re going for in the track snippet and the others on their TubesofYou channel, I think, and that’ll have to do for now.
To the PR wire:
Occult ritualists DEAD WITCHES ink deal with Heavy Psych Sounds Records for their upcoming 2017 release!
Heavily occult supergroup DEAD WITCHES (with former members of Electric Wizard and Psychedelic Witchcraft) have just inked a deal with European powerhouse Heavy Psych Sounds Records. The newly formed outfit will release their debut album early 2017.
Former member of Electric Wizard drummer Mark Greening (also of Ramesses, With The Dead) and vocalist Virginia Monti (Psychedelic Witchcraft) joined forces to found the heaviest occult psych superbeast to see the light this year, taking the shape of DEAD WITCHES.
Keeping it mysterious, the band has only released a couple of nippets for their upcoming works, which can be previewed HERE.
Beware as the witches are coming to take your soul.
