New album "The Final Exorcism" coming on February 22nd!
UK based occult doom unit DEAD WITCHES, the brainchild of Electric Wizard's founding member Mark Greening, is about to release 'The Final Exorcism', which will take place on February 22nd in the mighty house of Heavy Psych Sounds Records. With haunting vocals, heavy as hell riffs, a fuzzed bass and savage drumming, DEAD WITCHES will take you to another world... a world of darkness.
"For me, The Final Exorcism is a look into demonic possession, and the inner darkness of the subconscious mind that can take you to an occult place.“ Band mastermind Mark Greening explains. „Once you've been to that place, there is no coming back. I'd like to think that we achieved exactly what we set out to do with this record. Once again with the help of John Stephens, we created the sound we were looking for at Chuckalumba Studios, in the dark woods of Dorset. The entire album was pretty much recorded in three days. After mixing the tracks, we sent them to the wizard of mastering, Doug Shearer. And so, The Final Exorcism was locked into place. Enjoy the horror.“
In 2017 DEAD WITCHES began to work on the release of their first album, 'Ouija'. Featuring original guitarist Greg Elk and vocalist Virginia Monti (Psychedelic Witchcraft), and Carl Geary on bass 'Ouija' was phenomenally received by press and fans alike. February 22nd 2019 will not only see the release of DEAD WITCHES’ follow up record 'The Final Excorsism', featuring new members Oliver Irongiant (Grave Lines, Sea Bastard) on guitar and Soozi Chameleone (Satlan) on vocals, but also the re-release of the band's cult debut 'Ouija' on Heavy Psych Sounds.
DEAD WITCHES' brand new epos 'The Final Excorsism' has been recorded at the Chuckalumba studios, where the fabled sessions for 'Dopethrone' and 'Let Us Prey' by Electric Wizard were recorded and DEAD WITCHES debut 'Ouija'. The sessions began on the full moon 25th of August in the heart of the New Forest deep in Dorset, the hallowed home of 90's doom legends and Electric Wizard folklore, marking Mark’s fourth time in both bands at Chuckalumba. John Stephens, operating the living museum of antique analogue and valve driven studio gear and tape machines captured a world of demons and possessions...A banshee wail of woeful siren song weaving a sinister world of horror doom, through waves of burgeoning fuzz and hell sent thunder on the drum kit. Realising the magnitude of what they had committed to tape, DEAD WITCHES have worked with Doug Shearer, a wizard of mastering and the final member in the coven. His previous work also includes 'Dopethrone' and 'Let Us Prey'.
