Doom Rock Metal Trio Temple Witch Signs With Wormholedeath Records


We are thrilled to announce the partnership between Temple Witch, the groundbreaking doom rock metal trio, and Wormholedeath Records. This union marks the dawn of a new era for Temple Witch as they prepare to unleash their album, "Ocean Thousand, Mountain Thousand," set to drop on August 30, 2024.

The band stated: "We in Temple Witch are ecstatic to announce that we have signed a record label with WormHole Death Records. We are looking forward to a fruitful partnership and are absolutely thrilled to pursue this next stage in our musical journey.
Now partnered with WormHoleDeath Records, Temple Witch will release our second full-length album: Ocean Thousand, Mountain Thousand. The album fully and vividly expresses Temple Witch’s explorative branch of doom metal, scratching that doom metal itch, while simultaneously offering a far broader soundscape to experience, with long hard-hitting chords and ethereal riffs to enscorcel you.

Ocean Thousand, Mountain Thousand confronts personal loss, desperate confusion, and loneliness, and perhaps most importantly, the album discusses change and the growth that comes as a result.
During the writing of Ocean Thousand, Mountain Thousand Temple Witch was inspired by many great artists, including SubRosa, BleakHeart, YOB, and Spotlights, among others. Conceptually, we were inspired by ancient philosophies, such as Taoism and Stoicism, and their application in day-to-day life. Our goal with Ocean Thousand, Mountain Thousand, with all of our music, is to relate to as many people on this earth as we can, letting others - and ourselves in the process- be assured that they are not alone with their pain. Moreover, together in our creativity, we can understand one another."

Temple Witch: Embracing Shadows and Shaping Soundscapes

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, songwriter and guitarist Andy Russell joined forces with drummer Johno Benedik, sparking the birth of Temple Witch. Their musical chemistry flourished, leading to the creation of a stoner/doom metal band. With the addition of bassist Jacob Jones, the trio swiftly embarked on recording their debut album, "Hand In Hand With Chaos," released in June 2021.

Following the success of "Hand In Hand With Chaos," Temple Witch embarked on a journey of growth and achievement. They secured their first management deal with Extreme Management Group Inc. and garnered endorsements from industry leaders like DR Strings and InTune Guitar Picks, Inc. The band's ventures included performances at the inaugural Apocalypse In The Desert festival in Las Vegas and tours along the United States' east coast. In April 2023, Jacob and Andy found themselves in need of a drummer. After a handful of auditions, they met with a fellow Northeast Ohian musician; Jacob Wherley of Emerald Rage. Their connection was immediate and Jacob Wherley was welcomed into fold.

Also in May of 2023, Temple Witch signed our first record label with WormHoleDeath Records. Since then, the band has been tirelessly preparing for the release of our second album Ocean Thousand, Mountain Thousand. Temple Witch, not simply a catchy title, but a reference to the body and spirit. As a band, the goal was to write songs that tackle philosophical and, at times, existential matters. The word ‘Temple’ as a nod to body and mind; the word ‘Witch’ a reference the the shadow within all of us.

Temple Witch's ultimate aim transcends fame and fortune. Their mission as artists is to connect with audiences on a profound level, leaving a positive imprint with their music. Whether it's moving one listener or captivating a crowd of thousands, they view music as a pure form of communication. Their ambition extends globally, aspiring to reach audiences across cities and countries, touching the lives of millions.

Temple Witch’s message is not overly complicated. It is this: though we may not all understand one another, we all share the experience of being; the beauty, the wonder, the terrible suffering, and the utter cluelessness. The band doesn’t wish to make any sort of final or conclusive statements other than they know very well what it’s like to be human, and to that all people can relate, and that is what Temple Witch writes about.
