Oslo’s Saint Karloff are working at a good clip coming off their 2018 debut, All Heed the Black God (review here), in that it’s barely been a year since that release came out and already they’ve got a split and a new full-length due this Fall. The split is with Devil’s Witches and it’s out Sept. 6, and not quite a month later, on Oct. 4, they’ll issue their second long-player, Interstellar Voodoo. It’s set to be issued through Majestic Mountain RecordsOzium Reords and Stoner Witch Records, which is nice because, you know, the more the merrier when it comes to promotion.

These cats played Esbjerg Fuzztival earlier this Spring, and I’d expect much of their summertime has been spent coordinating making both these offerings come out, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they took to stages in early 2020, to at least get back out and promote late-2019’s wares.

Nothing on that yet, and no audio from Interstellar Voodoo, but here’s the album announcement from the PR wire:

Rising Norwegian Occult Rockers Saint Karloff to unleash monolithic, one-track album, Interstellar Voodoo, this October on Majestic Mountain Records

Hot on the heels of a sold-out split from two of doom’s rising superpowers, the recently formed Swedish label, Majestic Mountain Records, is psyched to announce the release of Interstellar Voodoo; the brand-new studio album from Norwegian occult-rockers, Saint Karloff.

Having made their mark on the international heavy music scene in 2018 with the release of their debut album, All Heed the Black God, the band has continued to raise their game with new material that is far heavier, more psychedelic and complex than anything they’ve ever done before.

All Heed the Black God was inspired by 70s heavy blues bands like Black Sabbath and early Pentagram (official) and allowed the band to fuse this vintage sound with modern day stoner rock to create a sound indebted to world of today and the music of yesteryear.

With the impending release of Coven of the Ultra-Riff in September, a limited edition split with fellow riff worshippers, Devil’s Witches, Saint Karloff – featuring Mads Melvold (Guitar, Vocals), Ole Sletner (Bass) and Adam Suleiman (Drums) – are a mounting force to be reckoned with. And as you’ll hear from the progressive, one-track multiverse journey that spans the whole of Interstellar Voodoo, they’re unlikely to slow down for anyone, anytime soon.

“Interstellar Voodoo has been a labour of love, written and recorded to fill a void in our collective souls,” explains bassist, Ole Sletner. “To put this much devotion into something experimental is a bit scary, but luckily we have a label who believes in us. We are eternally gratefull to Marco Berg at Majestic Mountain Records for stepping up to the challenge of releasing our blood, sweat and tears on vinyl.

Interstellar Voodoo by Saint Karloff is released on 4th October through Majestic Mountain Records with pre-order beginning on 30th August.

Saint Karloff’s split with Devil’s Witches – Coven of the Ultra-Riff – is released on 6th September 2019.
