Release: 29 May 2020

CD, LP, Digital

After four years of conspirative plotting, Mountain Witch return with a new album. Extinct Cults features 6 new songs of gloomy, doomy, stubbornly rocking heavy metal. With a moody production that reflects oldschool instinctiveness rather than vintage mimicry.

For fans of year dates one could describe the sound as early 80s but probably somewhere in the countryside, where  people still, unsuspectingly honour the old gods of 70s heaviness but ride on faster mopeds!

Album opener Capping Day screams "Sabbath Purple Sabbath", Back From The Grave sports a gloomy polysynth and evokes 80s horror-b-movies the same as Worship You. The title track Extinct Cults smashes the simon-and-garfunkelesk idyll of its intro with chunky lumber of pissed off doom `n roll. The quirky metal of Man is Wolf To Man chases its prey to its final destination, The Devil, Probably, a musical day of unbaptised judgment.

For fans of  Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer,  Angel Witch, Witchfinder General, Pagan Altar and all that stuff...

Adds Invisible Oranges: "Balmy and dynamic, Extinct Cults displays the exuberance and downright righteousness of that "early doom" sound like precious little else, all without dabbling in camp or shtick. There's more than a few ways to get your fill of soul-crushing doom these days, but when it comes to the joyously badass stuff, Mountain Witch may be your best bet."

+++German Info: Nach 4 Jahren konspirativen Schaffens kehren Mountain Witch nun mit neuem Album zurück. Extinct Cults präsentiert 6 neue Songs von gloomig-doomigen, trotzig rockendem heavy metal, mit einer mürrischen Produktion, die eher Oldschool-Instikt reflektiert als Vintage-Wahn. Freunden der historisch korrekten Einordnung könnte man erzählen, der Sound sei so frühe 80er, aber mehr so auf dem Lande, wo man noch arglos den alten Göttern der 70er Jahre Heaviness huldigt, blos mit schnelleren Mopeds!  Der Album-Opener CAPPING DAY schreit geradezu "Sabbath Purple Sabbath", BACK FROM THE GRAVE kommt mit kühlem Polysynth daher, der eine 80er-B-Movie-Stimmung  verbreitet, ähnlich wie auch WORSHIP YOU. Der Titelsong EXTINCT CULTS überrumpelt das simon-und-garfunkeleske Intro mit grobem Bauholz und angepisstem Doom `n Roll. Der kauzige Metal auf MAN IS WOLF TO MAN treibt seine Beute schliesslich in ihr Schicksal,  THE DEVIL PROBABLY, eine Art musikalisches, gottloses Jüngstes Gericht.

Für Fans von Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer,  Angel Witch, Witchfinder General, Pagan Altar und dem ganzen Zeug.
