Iowan grinders Closet Witch are poised to release their debut, self-titled full-length early this summer. In anticipation for its release, we at Svbterranean are excited to bring you a taste of the chaos to come in the form of the blistering new track “Spell of Giddiness” and its accompanying video. The 37-second track is a quick and violent gut-punch that is characterized by caustic grindcore rampage and the occasional, off-kilter riff. This track is just one of many head-spinners on the forthcoming album. Guitarist Alex Crist said the following of the upcoming record:
“it pushed us to our limits but we can say it’s been done. made a lot of awesome friends that made it all happen, taught me a lot of the do’s and don’ts of writing and recording – and now I now what to expect and how to take it on properly”
Drummer Royce Kurth adds:
“Being our first full length album, this project, to me feels like the culmination of all of the experiences and influences that we’ve had and aquired over the last few years that have really shaped our sound into something a lot more mature and defined. Some of our other releases have sort of a specific vibe or emotion to them in a lot of ways, but this project really brings a more full range of emotions throughout the record. We all put in an insane amount of time and hard work to put together something that represents who we are and what we’re capable of. This is the record that all of our other records wanted to grow up to be”
