Burning Witch  


Burning Witch was a short-lived ultra-doom outfit that came into being following the demise of Thorr’s Hammer, three members of that band forming the initial nucleus here (one of the three was Greg Anderson, who soon departed to form Goatsnake, and another, G. Stuart Dahlquist, later followed him there). They released two long EPs (Towers … is essentially a full-length album in terms of track time), followed by Southern Lord Records (the label run by the aforementioned Greg Anderson) essentially combining the two releases as Crippled Lucifer. This is seriously minimalist doom-noise, with sparse riffing, ponderously slow drumming, and mostly tortured screaming from one Edgy 59. The trio of Anderson, O’Malley, and Dahlquist hooked up for a third time after Burning Witch’s breakup, forming SunnO))).
