Seattle based duo BELL WITCH have, since their inception in 2010, carved a unique niche in the metal scene. Utilising only bass, drums and vocals to create a mournful, melodic take on minimalism and an ethereal but crushing approach to magnitude.
Their most recent LP, Four Phantoms (2015, Profound Lore) was recorded by Billy Anderson and is their most focused, structured and melancholy release to date. Four epic sentiments of funeral / death doom are orchestrated into arias of the four titular ghosts.
On “Mirror Reaper” will be released on October 20th through Profound Lore Records. The album was produced and mixed by Billy Anderson (Swans, Sleep, Neurosis) and contains a continuous 83-minute piece unfolding as a single track. This is our first recorded album with Jesse Shreibman (drums, organ), and again features honorary band member Erik Moggridge (Aerial Ruin).
“Mirror Reaper” was the first collaborative writing project with the new lineup, and Adrian’s death during it brought extra emotional weight. We sought to match the complexity and weight of these events within the composition of the piece.
