Primal, furious, and yet hopeful and defiant, this band channels a wide variety of musical and emotional influences into a cohesive yet explosively passionate, borderline-religious experience. Anchored in grindcore and metallic hardcore, hearkening to bands such as Insect Warfare, pre-2000’s Converge and Infest, CLOSET WITCH adds a unique, emotionally twisted spin to savage panic chords, blastbeats and d-beat riffs, utilizing elements of black metal and screamo to accomplish this. Vocalist Mollie Piatetsky sings songs of lament, personal loss, and injustice, and her furious vocal delivery and energy is breathtaking. Guitarist Alex Crist and bassist Cory Peak lay down furious riffs, quite literally entering the crowd throughout the performance, and drummer Royce Kurth not only dominates the drumkit but matches the emotional intensity of the rest of the band combined. Few bands of this genre can match the wrenching emotional intensity and passion of CLOSET WITCH, both on record and live. Let CLOSET WITCH take you to church.
