WITCHKISS, new deal
Thrilled to announce a new exciting band in Argonauta Records family: WITCHKISS from the States.
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 Isis to craft sounds that contemplates the neverending cycle of life and death.
Their upcoming 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. With a lineup completed by the thrilling bass playing of Anthony DiBlasi holding down the bands massive bottom end the Hudson scene is buzzing about these new heavyweights. 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 Yob, Cult of Luna, Windhand and True Widow 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. The Austere Curtains Of Our Eyes will be released ARGONAUTA Records and available from July 13th, 2018.
The band says: “With bands like Monte Luna, Eyes Front North, Hollow Leg and Wasted Theory on the label roster, we feel truly blessed to be welcomed into the Argonauta Records family!”
