South Carolina-based sludge punks Witchpit deliver their devastatingly heavy debut album »The Weight Of Death« in its entirety, ahead of its official release this March 25th on Heavy Psych Sounds Records.

“The crew dish out a genuine feast for the ears with deliciously downtuned doom devastation that rumbles along like a muscle car, with speeds reaching High On Fire and Motörhead. But this is still Southern sludge, so it’ll slow down and just let that engine purr at absolutely the best moments.” — Doomed & Stoned

With a sound that melds the savage metal grit of High On Fire, the southern flair of Eyehategod and the rowdy sludge punk fire of Black Tusk, »The Weight Of Death« carries the message that we poor mortals will be left to suffer famine, war, destruction and chaos while industry tycoons and tech giants hunker down in climate-controlled bunkers and shoot themselves into space. It was recorded, mixed and mastered at the Jam Room by Phillip Cope of Kylesa. The artwork was designed by Nino Andaresta. Watch their videos for »The Blackened Fee« and »The Weight Of Death«.

Witchpit »The Weight Of Death« out March 25th on Heavy Psych Sounds

Formed back in 2015 by Thomas White from The Sign Of The Southern Cross, Your Chance To Die and his long-lasting relationships from around the South Carolina heavy music community, Witchpit quickly became a serious force in their scene. After recording their first single »Infernal« in 2018, the band started to make waves, releasing the track through Weedian. Over the next few years, the band dropped another pair of singles and started to receive some meaningful press and support from around the community. In the meantime, they picked up endorsements from Emperor Cabinets and Black Harbor Strings.

Witchpit are now gearing up to release their debut LP on European powerhouse Heavy Psych Sounds. They have worked hard to build up their reputation and refine their sound into something special and emotionally powerful. It’s hard not to be compelled by Witchpit’s classic rock-infused sludge metal assault. This might well be the next step for a unique band that can’t help but impress. Will you join them in their mission to bring the heavy all across the globe?
