King Witch To Release “Under The Mountain” Via Listenable Records This February – Album Details Revealed

Scotland-based metal/doom rockers King Witch will release their debut full-length, Under The Mountain, via Listenable Records early this February.

Under The Mountain was recorded and produced by guitarist Jamie Gilchrist at their underground studio in their home city of Edinburgh, mixed and mastered by Tom Dring at Vagrant Recordings (Dragged Into Sunlight, Acolyte) in Southport and comes swathed in artwork created by vocalist Laura Donnelly. The record serves as King Witch’s follow-up to their debut EP, Shoulders Of Giants, and boasts nine riff-laden tracks offset by the powerful yet bewitching vocals of Donnelly. 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.

Formed in early 2015 in a dark cavern beneath the streets of old Edinburgh, King Witch manifests a potent and heavy brew of old school metal and the meatiest of ’70s classic rock. In a time where many seek to stick rigidly within the confines of their chosen genre, King Witch simply writes the songs they want to play.

Under The Mountain is scheduled for a February 9th, 2018 release via Listenable Records. For preorders visit listenable.net. A track-by-track guide to Under The Mountain as described by the band can be found below.

Video Clip For New Song “Taking Back The Fall” Issued By Iris Divine

Virginia progressive metal act Iris Divine released the new single and video clip for “Taking Back The Fall.” The song appears on the upcoming album, “The Static And The Noise,” which drops on October 6th! Pre-orders can be made at this location.

The video was filmed and edited by Chris Ratterree and Jamie Rose of Absolute Future Studios.

Kris Combs states: “‘Taking Back The Fall’ is the first official video Iris Divine has made, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the turnout. We filmed it in a warehouse that was about to be destroyed, and just knowing the fate of the place added to the overall vibe of the shoot. We wanted to showcase the live energy of Iris Divine with a performance clip, and the intensity of us jamming together. The song itself is a stellar example of what Iris is about; equal parts heavy, melodic and emotional, with a few rhythmic twists and a memorable chorus hook. We had a blast making it and hope you enjoy it!”

The track listing is:

1. Catalyst
2. Taking Back The Fall
3. Echoes/ Effigies
4. Fractures
5. The Static And The Noise
6. Like Glass
7. The Acolyte
8. We All Dissolve
