Edinburgh, Scotland based heavy/doom metal quartet King Witch share a music video for their cover of Black Sabbath classic »Children Of The Sea«.
The band comments: “Black Sabbath’s »Children Of The Sea« is the first track in our forthcoming two part digital covers EP »Worship The Riffs« which we recorded in December 2020 during lockdown.
We are all huge fans of Black Sabbath and this song is just so epic. It was a great way for us as a band to connect and have a bit of fun during lockdown. We very much hope we do it justice and we hope you enjoy it. Keep it heavy – keep it loud!”
Produced, mixed and mastered by Jamie Gilchrist.
Video creation and artwork by Laura Donnelly.
Formed in late 2015 in a dark cavern beneath the streets of old Edinburgh, a lead-heavy brew of old school metal and the meatiest of 70’s classic rock emerges in the form of King Witch.
Bristling with dark majesty, they draw comparisons ranging from Black Sabbath and Candlemass to Mastodon and High On Fire.
The band quickly earned themselves a reputation as a formidable live act and have toured the UK and Europe as well as playing festivals such as Sweden Rock, Muskel Rock, Malta Doom Fest, Dutch Doom Days and Siege of Limerick.
After self releasing their extremely well received EP »Shoulder of Giants«, the band were picked up by French label Listenable Records through which they released their debut album »Under The Mountain« in February 2018.
April 2020 saw the release of King Witch’s highly anticipated second album »Body Of Light« which further focuses their ability to fuse dense riffage with haunting yet powerful vocal lines and melodies. »Body Of Light«’s wider dynamic range takes the listener on an electrifying journey from dark, brooding passages through to full-tilt heavy metal glory.
