Witch Mountain played Saint Vitus w/ Lord Dying, Pilgrim & Bezoar (pics)
After kicking off a tour at Scion Rock Fest, Witch Mountain linked up with Lord Dying to hit the road for a string of US dates that included Saint Vitus on Friday (6/8) with Pilgrim and Bezoar. Pictures from that appearance adorn this post.
Witch Mountain's support for the evening was definitely strong. Bezoar celebrated the release of their new LP Wyt Deth (stream it below) with the Saint Vitus show and were followed by Pilgrim, who's set ended abruptly after three songs when guitarist threw his SG across the room. Lord Dying was the biggest surprise of the evening though, recalling early Mastodon as hinted on their recent demo.
What separates Witch Mountain from the pack is vocalist Uta's truly epic range. These vocals provide an excellent contrast to the blues-y doom riffs that drive the Portland-based quartet. If you haven't heard them, catch up with South of Salem (out now) to prep for Cauldron Of The Wild, due out 6/12 via Profound Lore.
