Articulate, elegant and ridiculously 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 Beacon, NY natives are fusing the sounds of bands like Subrosa, Yob and Windhand to craft sounds that contemplates the neverending cycle of life and death. 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. Building on the interplay between eerie female vocals and crushing growls, the groove driven Witchkiss can’t help but to fascinate.
