Terrorizer: José Carlos Santos’ Roadburn Band of the Week- Bell Witch

Posted on Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Rejoice, for your weekly Roadburn guide is back! No longer shall you roam the endless halls of the 013 come Tilburg’s delightful month of April, peeking shyly at the rooms with fear of committing yourself to any show, cursing Terrorizer for not having suggested awesome bands to look out for in the weeks prior to the grand event.

What better place to start, then, than a band that looks like it could actually use some redirecting of folk to the place where they’ll be emitting their unholy noise from? When discussing with a fellow Terrorizer colleague who shall remain unnamed (it was Kez) the choice of bands to cover, our esteemed reviews editor, ever the holder of impeccable taste, suggested “we should definitely give Bell Witch some love as they’re amazing but hardly anyone seems to know about them”, which is sadly true.

Granted, they haven’t been the most active of bands, nor do they play the most universally attractive of musics, but come on. This is Terrorizer and this is Roadburn, you people should be all over this by now. Not only are they a duo, and we all know duos are the new power trios in terms of cool line-ups (we don’t have to list all the kickass duos out for you again, do we?), but on the strength of their tenebrous 2012 debut, Longing, alone, everyone should have flocked to them.

Not only was it out on the über-kvlt Profound Lore, one of the few labels to maintain an unmistakable seal of quality, but it was also not your typical plodding-along doomy excursion either.
