Witchorious: Unleashing Doom Metal Darkness from the Depths of Paris

Witchorious - "Catharsis"


Brace yourselves, metalheads, for Witchorious is about to cast a spell upon your ears! Hailing from the shadowy streets of Paris, this trio is here to summon the darkest depths of doom metal straight into your soul.

Formed in 2019, Witchorious is a musical trinity comprising the guitar-wielding Antoine Auclair, the rhythmic sorcery of Paul Gaget on drums, and the thunderous bass lines and haunting vocals of Lucie Gaget. Allow yourself to be carried away by this whirlwind of sounds and sensations, and delve into the heart of a musical universe where the thrill of the unknown intertwines with the melancholic beauty of darkness.
Drawing inspiration from the progenitors of doom like Black Sabbath, Witchorious infuses their sound with a modern twist, channeling the raw aggression of Electric Wizard and the atmospheric intensity of Amenra and Mastodon. The result? A cacophony of chaotic doom metal that's as intoxicating as it is menacing.

With singles like "3 AM" and "Evil Creature" paving the way, Witchorious has already begun their descent into the musical underworld. But it's their debut album, released on February 16th, 2024, under the banner of Argonauta Records, that promises to truly unleash the beast.
Recorded in the heart of Paris at Studio Sainte-Marthe by the legendary Francis Caste, the album comprises 10 tracks that delve into the depths of psychic duality, human vice, and the inevitable demise of the world. With hellish fuzzy riffs and vocals that oscillate between haunting whispers and primal screams, each track is a descent into the darkness of the human psyche.
But Witchorious isn't content with merely haunting the studio; they're hungry for the stage. Having already shared the limelight with The Wytches and graced the Westill Fest stage, they're on a mission to spread their brand of darkness far and wide.
So, fellow metalheads, heed the call of Witchorious. Let their music envelop you in its shroud of darkness, and embrace the chaos within.
