DEAD WITCHES - OUIJA (PURPLE VINYL)
Ouija on LP
LP version. Purple vinyl. Mark Greening (formerly of Electric Wizard, also of Ramesses and With The Dead) and vocalist Virginia Monti (Psychedelic Witchcraft) joined forces to found the heaviest occult psych super-beast to see the light in 2016, taking shape as Dead Witches. Keeping it mysterious, the band has released a couple of snippets for their upcoming works. Metal Nexus has called the album "an alluring, somewhat hypnotic style of music steeped in vintage aesthetics and mystique." The debut album, Ouija is full of doomy, slow grooves. There's something occult in the riffing, and the classic doom drumming by the great Mark Greening meeting the warm vocal melodies of Virginia Monti. The album features six songs, about 33 minutes of unreleased music. Recorded in October of 2016 at the Chuckalumba, the same studio where Electric Wizard's Dopethrone (2000) was recorded. Beware as the witches are coming to take your soul. RIYL: Electric Wizard, Sleep, Pentagram.
