Witch Mountain has completed recording their fourth album, Mobile of Angels which will be released on the Svart Records label on 6th October.
The new album is their most epic and musically challenging album to date, darker and more brooding than any of its predecessors. With a cleaner and warmer sounding production (courtesy of legendary producer Billy Anderson, album tracked and mixed in Type Foundry studios Portland) yet still maintaining that massive heavy bluesy and melodic tone the band are known for. Lead singer Uta Plotkin delivers her best vocal performance yet.
“This is the third in our trilogy of comeback albums. It’s the third with Uta Plotkin singing, and the third with Billy Anderson as producer. This one is the most fully developed, with the best sound and songs that we’ve yet mustered in our 17 years as a band. In many ways, it was also the easiest to make, because we’ve been working and touring so hard, the communication is flowing, and our close relationship with Billy keeps us from wasting time in the studio. Yes, we could have spent another week fine-tuning and mixing the album into the ground. But we didn’t bother. Like all Witch Mountain albums, this one authentically captures where we were at when we made it. Since tracking this in May, we’ve toured Europe again and dialed the live presentation even further. We are firing on all cylinders. Side one of the new album will crush your skull, and Side two will make you want to slit your wrists. This is honest, heavy, American rock music that keeps one foot in the doom metal tradition, and another stepping beyond the fringe of genre and into the landscape of pure, emotional rock and roll expression.” – Nate Carson/Witch Mountain
