Immerse Yourself in the Death Thrash Groove of ATOMIC WITCH “Love Curse”

We’ve all fallen in love with the unattainable, and sometimes it takes some death thrash groove to snap us out of our eternal longing! So if you need to bang your head until you’re over someone then hit play on our premiere of ATOMIC WITCH‘s new single “Love Curse”! This song has caustic riffs that will scrape away your lovelorn flesh and relentless beats to tenderize your bloody heart! It’s off their new record Crypt of Sleepless Malice that’s out November 4th via Redefining Darkness Records — pre-order it here and here.

If you can’t tell by our handle, we here in Atomic Witch prefer the spooky end of metal—spells, curses, phantoms, and all types of moonlit mania. “Love Curse” fittingly tells the story of a tortured soul doomed to an eternity of the ultimate form of unrequited love, living a life consumed by lust for a ghost that lived hundreds if not thousands of years before him.

Musically, it was definitely a boundary pusher for us. We’ve always had a toe or two in classic metal with the falsetto vocals, but with this song we attempted to make a sort of ballad with a lot more melody than our typical approach. Acoustic intro, synthesizers, clean(ish) choruses, all of it combines with these lumbering death metal verses to capture things at their most dynamic. A lot of this is new territory for us but we are very proud of the results.
