This February, Listenable Records will unleash "Under The Mountain," the debut full-length from Scotland-based metal/doom rockers King Witch on February 9th, 2018. In advance of its release, Decibel Magazine is hosting a premiere of the band's official video for "Beneath The Waves" over at this location. Of course, the video is also available in the convenient player above.
Elaborates vocalist Laura Donnelly: "'Beneath The Waves' was inspired by stories such as Moby Dick and explores man's need to destroy anything and everything beautiful, dangerous, and unfamiliar... and the retribution dealt in return. This track felt like a natural choice for the video - soaring vocals, massive drums and some huge riffs!"
"Under The Mountain" was recorded and produced by guitarist Jamie Gilchrist at the underground studio in the band's home city of Edinburgh, and was mixed and mastered by Tom Dring at Vagrant Recordings (Dragged Into Sunlight, Acolyte) in Southport. The artwork was created by Donnelly. The record serves as the follow up to the debut EP, "Shoulders Of Giants," and boasts nine riff-laden tracks offset by Donnelly's powerful yet bewitching vocals. Influenced by everything from Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin to Mastodon and High On Fire, "Under The Mountain" is as melodic as it is monolithic, taking its listener on a journey from soulful doom to full-tilt metal mayhem.
The track listing for the album is:
1. Beneath The Waves
2. Carnal Sacrifice
4. Under The Mountain
5. Approaching The End
9. Black Dog Blues
