BELL WITCH have announced a brand new album!
The upcoming album, Mirror Reaper, is the third effort from the band and is scheduled to be released in October this year. The upcoming album was engineered and mixed by veteran producer Billy Anderson (SWANS, SLEEP, NEUROSIS). Speaking about the upcoming album, the band says, “the title Mirror Reaper is indicative of the Hermetic axiom As Above, So Below, written with two sides to form one whole. The song is both its own and its reflection, as an opposite is whole only with its contrary. Our focus as a band has always been the perception of ghosts and the implied archetype of the dichotomy of life/death therein. Mirror Reaper is a continuation of that concept. During the writing process we were devastated by the loss of our dear friend and former drummer, Adrian Guerra. In love and respect to his memory, we reserved an important yet brief section in the song for him that features unused vocal tracks from our last album. This specific movement serves as a conceptual turn in the piece, or point of reflection. We believe he would be proud of it as well. Mirror Reaper was the first collaborative writing project with the new line up, and Adrian‘s death during it brought extra emotional weight. We sought to match the complexity and weight of these events within the composition of the piece.”
Alongside the announcement of the upcoming album, the band has revealed the track list and artwork for the upcoming album. Both of which are available to view below:
