Today, French doom cult Witchthroat Serpent premiere the new track “Striped Dragon” at slow & low authority TheObelisk.net. The track is the title track to the band’s forthcoming new 7″ EP, Striped Dragon, set for international release on June 15th via Svart Records. Hear Witchthroat Serpent‘s “Striped Dragon” in its entirety exclusively HERE.
After their acclaimed second LP, last year’s Sang-Dragon, Witchthroat Serpent continue to blaze their own path in the most powerful manner possible. Striped Dragon is not merely an addendum; it is a fierce metallic onslaught of occult psychedelia, strong enough to stand on its own.
Recorded live at Drudenhaus Studio during the Sang-Dragon sessions, this new 7″EP reveals an even more radical side of the doom shamans. These two exclusive tracks push the band’s sound into a new territory. Fierce and mind-warping, riddled with fuzzy hammering riffs and ever-groovier pounding, it’s a mean follow-up to their previous sonic excursions.
Striped Dragon will be presented in a deluxe gatefold cover, a carefully-crafted work of art by Branca Studio. This piece is limited to 300 copies and is a one-time pressing. It will also precedes Witchthroat Serpent‘s upcoming tour (dates after the jump). In the meantime, hear its title track exclusively HERE, courtesy of TheObelisk.net.
