    Swamp Witch; the culmination of psychedelic substances, occult practices, and band members interest in dark, strange, and trippy music originally devised with the sole intent to commit and record ritualistic extremities through heavy music only for the night of 9/9/09. In the aftermath, members found themselves pressed to continue the slow-burning drudgery sparked that September ninth into the months that followed, leading to shows, recordings, band members towing themselves out of the smog from Central Valley, CA into Oakland and Arcata.

    The punishing, murky layers protruding from this release drip with the trance-laden, drug induced efforts of 70's psychedelia compressed into the claustrophobic toil and painful repetition of 90's sludge. This concept of "Gnosis" actually seems more akin to H.P. Lovecraft's ideas of psychosis and derealization as the only thing the feeble human mind can experience when confronting truth (cosmicism), as opposed to gnosis in the classic, transcendental sense of the term.
