BELL WITCH Detail New Album; Announce Upcoming Tour

Crushing two-piece doom metallers Bell Witch have recently completed work on their upcoming album, Longing, set to be released November 13th via the forever excellent Dark Descent Records. Building upon the structure of their crushing 2011 demo debut, Bell Witch continue their strictly drum and bass doom metal aural assault on Longing, an experience which has been self-described by Profound Lore as “a slow, time-stretching trodden journey through sounds of darkness, pain, and suffering and serves as one of the saddest, morose, and most despondent, stripped down, doom metal releases of the year.” Additionally, Bell Witch will be supporting the release of Longing with a October headlining tour consisting of support from fellow labelmates LossPallbearer, and Coffinworm(wherein which you can snag a copy of Longing before its official release). Sound brutal? Check out the dates for the tour ,stream an edited and trimmed version of the first cut off of the album, “Bails (Of Flesh)”,all after the jump and decide for yourself.

31 Days Of Halloween: Day Six

Well, it’s my turn again and today I have chosen a song that truly creeps me out every time I hear it. Actually, it’s not just this song, but his entire album. The song I have chosen is “Shallow Pulse” and it is a very dark and unnerving track off of the shockingly evil Despond. The song structure is very slow and misanthropic while the vocals are extremely slow and hollow. Basically, if you want a song that could quite possibly put an abrupt halt to the wellness factor of any setting you happen to be in, Loss is the band for you and this song just might do the trick. Enjoy or cower in fear.

Morning Jams: Doom & Gloom

I chose to dedicate today’s playlist to dark, crushing, dooming bands. All of these bands produce misanthropic, thundering tunes and all of theme execute their music in a different fashion. I have loved some of these bands for quite some time while others are new to me. Doom metal is something that I have been fond of for quite some time. In the dark times of my life, this music served a big part. Something about how slow and devastating the music is, it just made me feel something. It was like, no matter how bad shit was around me, there was a lot worse shit in the world. I know that sounds like some pussy bullshit, but it’s real. I hope you enjoy this evil playlist because I know I will. Enjoy.
