Shadow Witch - Eschaton


New Release:

Shadow Witch: Eschaton (The End Of All Things) – Stoner/Doom Mastery Unleashed

Just when you thought your doom quota for the year was filled, SHADOW WITCH drops their latest album, Eschaton (The End Of All Things), like a monolithic slab of cosmic riffage straight out of New York's Hudson Valley. Released on June 21, 2024, under Argonauta Records, this opus solidifies SHADOW WITCH's place in the stoner/doom pantheon.
Kicking off with "Speedy Goes to Sludgetown," the album sets a grim tone with gritty guitar work and thundering rhythms. The track listing continues to impress with "Satellites" and "Tell Me," each song a journey through heavy, distorted soundscapes that resonate with vintage rock sensibilities. "Nobody" brings a haunting melody that lingers long after the final chord, while "Let It Out" explodes with raw, cathartic energy.
The centerpiece, "Dominu Sanctus Oblivion," is an epic doom anthem, blending foreboding lyrics with crushing riffs. The latest single, "The Lion & the Lamb," now has an official music video, adding a visual feast to the auditory one. Watch it here and experience the Garden of Eden like never before—a fractal repeat of hyper-real plastic greenery that only SHADOW WITCH could envision. The album closes with "The Fallen," a track that leaves you contemplating the void with its melancholic tones and weighty atmosphere.
Formed in 2015, SHADOW WITCH has carved out a niche with their brooding occult-rock vibes. Their previous works, including ‘Sun Killer’ (2016) and ‘Disciples Of The Crow’ (2017), have earned them a loyal following. After signing with Italy’s ARGONAUTA RECORDS, they released the dark, mesmerizing 'Under The Shadow of a Witch' in 2020. With Eschaton, they’ve surpassed even their own high standards.
In conclusion, Eschaton (The End Of All Things) is album heavy, it’s dark, and it’s everything you want from a stoner/doom record. If you’re a fan of the genre, this album is a must-listen. SHADOW WITCH has proven once again that they are masters of their craft, blending raw power with deep, introspective themes.
So, strap in, turn up the volume, and let SHADOW WITCH take you on a journey to the end of all things. Doom on, my friends. Doom on.
