Album Review by Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio

 

Witchkiss is a two piece doom metal band hailing from New York and features Amber Burns (drummer, vocalist) and Scott Prater (guitarist, vocalist). Their current album, The Austere Curtains of Our Eyes, is available on Bandcamp. They have performed at Maryland Doom Fest and Indianapolis Doomed and Stoned Fest, among others. I introduce Witchkiss because they are coming to New England Stoner and Doom Fest in May in CT. We will be interviewing them to get more in depth about their album's themes and their performance style 

The album is hauntingly beautiful and it is not just an album, it is an experience. It renders feelings of pain and loss, sultriness and beauty, and an interplay of agony and ecstasy. “A Crippling Wind” is a wistful sensibility that is immensely engrossing with clear influences of Type O Negative. With intense melodic sections that weave among the sections of heavier compositions, songs like “Spirits of the Dirt” and “Seer” bring out emotions that words may not necessarily articulate.

Witchkiss is serious, ambient-centric, and oftentimes I hear hints of black metal interspersed throughout. They are richly textured ranging from clean verses and deep guitar to thunderous drumming, harsher vocals balanced with Amber's rich vocal melodies. Check them out on tour and on Bandcamp.
