Southern California Blackened Death Metal outfit Witch Casket has released their second EP entitled “Punishment” less than 6 months after the release of their debut album. The new EP is available now for purchase via download through the band’s profile page at bandcamp:
The album will also be available to download through all major online music stores, including iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play, CDBaby, and available through streaming on Pandora and Spotify.
The album was produced, engineered and mixed by the band’s guitarist, Colin “Nylock” Cameron, and mastered by Maor Appelbaum of Maor Appelbaum Mastering. Performing on the album is guitarist Nylock, handling guitar, bass, drums, Piano Keyboards, and Orchestral Arrangements. Vocals were performed by Drogoth, with additional guitar by Neal Tiemann.
Vocalist Drogoth had this to say about the album release:
“After completion of our debut EP “Hatred Index” we had a few more songs that were already in development, and so we decided to head back to the studio immediately in the interest of having more material to release as soon as possible after our debut. We feel that we had some really strong songs, and wanted to get them out as soon as possible in the interest of continuing to build our name within the metal scene.”
Witch Casket was formed by ex-members of Symphonic Black Metal band “Sothis” from Los Angeles, and guitarist Neal Tiemann of Devildriver. After over a decade of creating Symphonic Black Metal, these musicians were looking to write more melodic death metal style songs, while still keeping the blackened symphonic aspects from the previous band’s style.
