Comprised of members of Torture Rack, Utzalu, Pissblood, Aldebaran, the live incarnation of Triumvir Foul and more, Witch Vomit know their way around a solid death-metal composition, creating a vile and volatile version of the genre that is at once straight-ahead and brutalizing while also being complex and unique. Take the title track off the band's latest LP, Buried Deep in a Bottomless Grave (due on August 30th), for instance. It starts with a gnarly blasting riff before taking a hard turn into a subtlety melodic chorus and then into a multilayered bridge that contains its own sub-chorus. It's then that the group heads into another direction entirely with a final section that could be a song of its own, complete with a new badass riff and a singular melodic approach. All of which is to say that Witch Vomit clearly have ideas — lots of them — and know how to execute.
