WITCH MOUNTAIN
CAULDRON OF THE WILD
PROFOUND LORE

After a lengthy absence and a major lineup switch, Witch Mountain have finally found their retro gloomy groove on their third album, the six-track excursion CAULDRON OF THE WILD. This female-fronted Portland-based quartet drop dollops of dreary doom metal down the hatch (“Shelter”) while adroitly executing dramatic songwriting with an emphasis on building and falling dynamics (“Aurelia”) to create a unmistakably ballsy and authentically bluesy heavy experience. Chock full of raw protometal power, mesmerizing vocals courtesy of the scintillating operatically trained pipes of newest member and gamechanger Uta Plotkin, and a collection of viscous rhythms and snarling riffs masterfully woven together, Witch Mountain possess a genuine oppressive nature and superb composition skills that any doom fan will fawn over. -Mike SOS
