|Los Angeles spiritual psych-doom trio HIGH PRIESTESS unveil a new song taken from their otherworldly sophomore album ‘Casting The Circle’ on Ripple Music. Get into the ritual with “The Hourglass” exclusively on Cvlt Nation.
“Forget 3D, spiritual doom band HIGH PRIESTESS is here to take you to a higher dimension. With epic riffs and swirling, otherworldly vocals, these beings make music built for psychedelic trips to the higher planes of existence. (…) It’s music to cast a circle to; to light fires to; to get high to; to dance naked to. Be prepared for delicious heaviness and transcendental melodies to take over your senses!” enthuses Cvlt Nation editors.
About this new song, guitarist and vocalist Katie Gilchrest comments: “The Hourglass is a lament about time and what we choose to do with it. We always have a lot of fun playing this tune, and the harmony parts are some of my favorites of all the songs we’ve written so far.”
Their 2018 eponymous debut on Ripple Music quickly turned heads in the heavy music underground, leading to tours in the US and Europe. Their sophomore full-length “Casting the Circle,” releasing in April 2020, seasons the psych-doom cauldron with keyboards, tribal percussion, signature harmonies and grandiose prog rock arrangements, all while pushing the boundaries of just how “heavy” heavy music can be. ‘Casting The Circle’ will be available on April 10th through Ripple Music. The artwork was designed by Jill Colbert at Manfish Inc.
HIGH PRIESTESS is a psychedelic doom trio from Los Angeles convoking crushing riffs drenched with lush harmonies and hypnotic eastern themes. Formed in 2016 by Mariana Fiel on bass and vocals, she recruited Katie Gilchrest on guitar and vocals and Megan Mullins on drums through an online ad. Since then, they have created a sound that echoes both past and future incarnations of doom and psychedelia. Tours, both domestic and abroad, will find HIGH PRIESTESS embarking on their mission to spread the wicked gospel of thick, mossy fuzz and rhapsodic melody. Basically, wherever this band can go, they will go. Prepare to worship at their altar.
