Portland, Oregon doom metalers Witch Mountain were over in Europe earlier this year and while it’s taken a while to get reports in from these performances, we finally heard from Ansell who attended their performance at Glazart in Paris, France.
“You know why you people in the United States never heard about the Witch Mountain shows? Because nobody was able to stay awake. They must have had some kind of spell put on us or maybe something was in the drinks but the minute they walked out on stage, I vaguely remember hearing the opening riff of their first song and as I watched them I felt very heavy and sleepy. The next thing I remembered I was laying on the floor with everyone else and we were all wondering what happened. The band had packed up and left like nothing had happened. It was the strangest thing.”
In the states, there have been similar reports of audience members at Witch Mountain shows waking up the on the floor of a venue not recalling much more than the first half of the first song of their set and in some rare cases, people have stayed awake for the whole set. This caused them to have almost LSD like hallucinations as their bodies and minds fought the ever powerful urge to just pass the fuck out.
Over The Top Metal News tried to reach out to Witch Mountain’s PR people but surprisingly, they were all sleeping.
