There are people who believe they are gods on earth, and there are people who they believe are born to serve them. When you look at how wealth has been “transferred” for centuries—exchanged between a minute proportion of the population—there’s a pretty good chance that if you’re reading this, you are one of the servants. And in order to keep you trudging through life with the weight of their wealth on your back, you’ve been sold lies about how you might one day join them, if only you borrow enough money from their corrupt banking system. Some inherit generational wealth, others inherit generational debt.
If all the billionaire space flights of 2021 didn’t jar you back into reality, then maybe Witchpit‘s new album will. Their new record The Weight of Death carries the grave message that we’re the ones who will be left to suffer the famine, war, destruction, and chaos while the industry tycoons and tech giants hunker down in climate-controlled bunkers or shoot themselves into space. There’s no better vessel for these ballads to our demise than sludge with a heavy dose of rock n roll to make the reality go down. Witchpit’s driving riffs and relentless beats just might lead us down another road, headbanging all the way.
The Weight of Death is about the elites — ruling class profiting off of the sale- destruction of our planet — while we the masses carry the weight (knowledge and reality) of what is going on and being done to us but not having the power or voice to do anything about it.
The new Witchpit record is out March 25th on Heavy Psych Sounds—pre-order it here and stream it here. Right now, we’re stoked to share their official lyric video for the title track “The Weight of Death,” created by Scott Rudd Film.
