More and more we are witnessing new bands mixing genres, we get death/doom, blackened hardcore, sludge/crust, etc. What matters is that a lot of good stuff have been popping out from every corner of the World.
One of those cases are Swamp Witch, this Oakland 4-piece "Occult/Funeral/Sludge" band has effectively taken the stale death/doom subgenre and almost completely re-imagined it. While still retaining the crushing, brooding heaviness, indicative of the genre, Gnosis's take the listener on an adventure through psychedelic madness and noisy chaos. The three songs that comprise the A-side of this monstrous cassette are definitely a powerful revitalization of a genre that is normally based around piety towards the canonical bands, when it really doesn't have to be. It's heavy, it's fresh, and, for lack of a better word, trippy. Like!!
