Hello my lovelies! Today is another beautiful day with Scorpio season still upon us! I’m very excited for another edition to the Witchy Shit Playlist file. I’m sure I’m going to find something mystical this week seeing as we just had Halloween so there’s plenty of spooky vibes left to be had. Let’s take a look at this week’s catch!
DEER LORD — ‘WITCHES BREW/PSYCHEDELIC ROADKILL’
Ohhh yes! I’m super excited to announce that DEER LORD — a heavy psych/doom metal band from Santa Rosa, California — has released a new EP this week! ‘WITCHES BREW/PSYCHEDELIC ROADKILL’ is a two-song album that invokes our witchy side for a divine energy boost. The lazy, yet feral arc swirling through a deep, muddy track gives the perfect groove. When the beat kicks up that’s where you feel the fire and intensity that is DEER LORD especially with the song “Psychedelic Roadkill”. You can check out the new DEER LORD album ‘WITCHES BREW/PSYCHEDELIC ROADKILL’ below and be sure to hit up their Bandcamp site to purchase!
THRUMM — ‘NEON DEAD’
Brand new stoner rock/doom metal band from Atlanta, Georgia has come forth with their debut album — please welcome THRUMM! Their new EP titled ‘NEON DEAD’ is an 80’s style stoner rock with a doomy edge. With the 80’s vibe coming from the vocal range and styling this is a different kind of stoner rock band. THRUMM has a rock n’ roll style to their approach and a killer upbeat tempo to ‘NEON DEAD’ . This is more on the rock side and delivers a powerhouse performance by the band! It’s one hell of a way to make a first impression! Check out ‘NEON DEAD’ by THRUMM and catch this album on their official Bandcamp page!
NOTHING IS REAL — ‘THE END IS NEAR’
If you’re looking for some doomy music with black metal style vocals then you’ve made it to the right place! NOTHING IS REAL is a doom/sludge/black metal band from Los Angeles, California (hey neighbors!) who’s released a lot of music since 2019 — their latest being ‘THE END IS NEAR’. The new album is a savage mixture of blackened doom, wicked vocals, plus a few good stoner rock/groove metal riffs. It’s not the typical slow sludge music, NOTHING IS REAL has a serious prog thing going on. The melodic tones that get swept into a frenzy of doom give the listener a saturated wave of darkness to vibe out with. Check out the new album ‘THE END IS NEAR’ by NOTHING IS REAL below and get over to their official Bandcamp page to purchase it!
PHARM — ‘VORTEX’
Ohhhh let’s get weird! Coming from Kelowna, BC we have PHARM who’s a progressive stoner rock band. Their new album ‘VORTEX’ is a magical creation with colliding methods of music. This may be the most progressive stoner rock I’ve ever heard — it boarders on stoner/djent. The album ‘VORTEX’ feels like a vortex (especially with the right kind of weed) and you’re getting sucked into a wonderland of endless forms of stoner rock. PHARM made a fantastic record to lose yourself with, and oftentimes you may even question what forms of music are even possible! Check out ‘VORTEX’ below and go over to their Bandcamp page to purchase the album!
LÁGOON — ‘BURY ME WHERE I DROP’
LÁGOON is a prime example as to why Portland, Oregon is known for its doom metal bands. I don’t know what’s going on up there or why PDX produces such killer doom but I want to find out! LÁGOON is a Portland doom band who’s been dooming it up since 2018 and has just revealed a brand new album! The sludge-a-licious ‘BURY ME WHERE I DROP’ record is a decadent feast of all things doom — dark, slow, and creeping into one’s ear, but also a little groovy in some places. ‘BURY ME WHERE I DROP’ brings a different vibe to the sludge aesthetic and takes on different shapes as the album plays on. Check out the new LÁGOON album below and don’t forget to check out their Bandcamp page for purchasing options and other works!
