Mother Iron Horse release new music video for the track »The Witches« from their sophomore album »Under The Blood Moon«

Salem, Massachusetts based stoner/sludge metal band Mother Iron Horse release new music video for the track »The Witches« from their sophomore full-length album, »Under The Blood Moon«, out on November 5th, 2021 via Ripple Music.

The band comments: “Ok. So here it is. Our zero budget music video recorded on an outdated iPhone with a projector and some colors. We’d like to thank Brother Shane for stopping by and running said projector.
To all bands out there, keep creating. Don’t let something like money get in the way of your creativity. It’s your vision. Make it happen.
Also got confirmation from the big dogs at Ripple Music that our record is finally landing this week. We can’t thank them enough for believing in us and we can’t thank YOU enough for all of your continued support. Now go make something cool 🤘”

Mother Iron Horse was formed in 2018 by North Shore natives Adam Luca, Marco Medina, and Chris Kobialka. Shortly after forming, they found an old mill and began building their own recording studio, leading to the release of a 2-song demo on Halloween of 2018 (Hellmouth Records). Shortly afterward, the band was approached by Italy-based label Electric Valley Records, who released their debut album »The Lesser Key« worldwide on May 17th, 2019. In support of the album, the band left for their first tour alongside Dutchguts up and down the American East Coast and throughout the Southern states in June 2019. After a summer of festivals and weekend shows, they hit the road again in September – with longtime friends and fellow Massachusetts natives Leather Lung. They played regionally throughout the rest of the year and appeared on the Boston-based TV show Heavy Leather Topless Dance Party.

2020 was shaping up to be their biggest year yet with a national tour booked around their appearance at Psycho SmokeOut in Los Angeles, followed by another summer of festivals leading up to a European tour in the fall. Unfortunately, the pandemic hit. Not one to waste time, Mother Iron Horse began writing their second album »Under The Blood Moon«, whose debut video »Old Man Satan« made such an impression within the heavy scene that it caught the attention of Ozzy Osbourne bassist Blasko, who instantly signed the band to Ripple Music as part of his curated series of releases.

Recorded at God City Studios (High On Fire, Converge) and executive produced by Blasko, »Under The Blood Moon« is a gritty sledgehammer propelled by unstoppable riffs and Adam Luca’s cathartic roaring, when he’s not delivering hair-raising clean vocals. With a tongue-in-cheek vibe, the unholy foursome injects some fun in the Heavy by adding a corrosive sludge punk twist that makes it sound incredibly rousing and addictive.

Says frontman Adam Luca: “We were forced to witness the harsh reality of life, loss and true helplessness on a daily basis. While paying respect to what was actually happening around us, it forced me to retreat into my imagination. With the streets literally empty, it allowed me to envision a completely alternate universe in my surroundings. A sort of blank canvas to set my own weird stage. Every song on »Under The Blood Moon« takes place within a 5-10 mile radius from our home in the Salem area of Massachusetts. An already surreal place made even more so in the throes of a global pandemic.”
