Meet the band that claims to mix Converge with Sigur Ros
Vancouver Tech-Metallers WITCH OF THE WASTE recently released new EP Made of Teeth. The EP is available as a digital download and as a blue vinyl 7″ at https://witchofthewaste.bandcamp.com/album/made-of-teeth
The new EP follows 2013 release All Other Voices, but this time offers an even more intense dose of scathing, extreme metal acrobatics. WITCH OF THE WASTE considers only their musical vision with no regard for scene expectations or flavor-of the-month trend hopping. The band’s influence are diverse, ranging from CONVERGE to ULCERATE to RUSSIAN CIRCLES, and many points in between. WITCH OF THE WASTE’s stage show is a ferocious one, to say the least, recalling acts like THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and CEPHALIC CARNAGE.
WITCH OF THE WASTE is a five-piece metal band from Vancouver BC. Rejecting the technical arms race that overwhelms modern metal, WOTW strives to reach new levels of raw intensity while keeping their aesthetic vision close in sight. Fast, churning and swelling guitar riffs laid over manic drumming played fast, loud, and recklessly topped off with dynamic barking vocals and high otherworldly shrieks. Influences range from Converge, Oathbreaker, and Ulcerate to Sigur Ros. The music is a terrifying exploration and an emotional upheaval.
