Tonight we’ve got a Free Metal Monday for the ages as we welcome back WITCH MOUNTAIN, alongside CASTLE and MARES OF THRACE, co-presented on a full tour by SCION. Notable heavies WITCH MOUNTAIN return to the Bottle after opening for INDIAN this past summer. Of last year’s South of Salem, NPR praised “those massive, rumbling doom riffs aren’t just there to get your slow motion headbang on, those riffs want to bore into your skull, crack open a beer and make you a lifer. Their third LP, Cauldron of the Wild, came out earlier this year on Profound Lore Records to high praise and we’re stoked to see their brain-shattering tactics come alive yet again. Thrash-inspired doom metal trio CASTLE hit the bottle for their first time tonight in support of their second album Blacklands, out via Prosthetic Records, while punishing, ear-splitting MARES OF THRACE bring buzzsaw guitar riffage and wild banshee screams to open things at this awesome-infinity FREE MONDAY.
