“This is the first of a series of videos we are creating. All will be directed by our good friend Christopher Lennox and will feature simple concepts and dark atmosphere. Think of them as bad jokes being told at inappropriate times.” comments vocalist Ryan Fitzgerald.
Rejecting the technical arms race that overwhelms modern metal, Witch of The Waste strives to reach new levels of raw intensity while keeping their aesthetic vision close in sight. Their 2015 release ‘Made of Teeth’ follow up 2013’s debut ‘All Other Voices‘ and offers fast, churning and swelling guitar riffs laid over manic loud drumming topped off with dynamic barking vocals and high otherworldly shrieks. Influences range from Converge, Oathbreaker, and Ulcerate to Sigur Ros and Pink Floyd. Their music is a terrifying exploration and an emotional upheaval that has lead the band to share the stage with such bands as Tesseract, Animals As Leaders, Intronaut, Gorguts, Gojira, Archspire, Anciients, Norma Jean, Fall City Fall, Havok, Cloudkicker, After The Burial and many more.

“They can bludgeon you with brutal force, come at you with a tech element that can make your head spin and then throw you down with the hardest of hardcore.” – BeatRoute BC
“One of the more satisfying aspects of being involved with the local music scene is the opportunity to watch a band persevere and grow. Witch of the Waste is a good example of this, having undergone a subtle metamorphosis in the last few years. While their first EP, All Other Voices, released in early 2013, showed no shortage of promise, their newest effort, Made of Teeth, sees the band refocused in a more refined direction.” – Not Your Scene
“It’s safe to say that local metal band Witch of the Waste have been getting a lot of hype over this past year. They’re playing big shows at big venues with crazy lineups and they’re kicking ass while they do it. ” – Red On Black Music
“Melding together very progressive style riffs with an overall punk type feeling, they remind me most of a Dillinger Escape Plan style. Intensity is the name of the game as their live show pulls no punches. It’s in your face, extreme and the crowd eats it right up. Shows with these dudes can get downright violent, which fits the music extraordinarily well.” – Gun Shy Assassin
“An impressive debut for a band with a lot of potential….The band does a great job of balancing heaviness and technicality without letting one side overpower the other….With an engaging debut like All Other Voices to get them started, the future is bright for Witch of the Waste and they are definitely a band to keep an eye on in the coming years.” (Review of 2013 All Other Voices EP) – Sputnik Music
