Bucky I suggest you dig in and let the myriad of sweet soundscapes sweep you away. Witches of God have surprised us all with a glorious exhibit of tantalizing heavy rock. Is it prog? Is it metal? Is it punk or is it Folk? I say it’s nothing but straight fire and all of the above. Well done gents.

StoneFly Effects It’s coven time and the Witches of God have gathered. The tribal drums are calling the creatures of the night. The flames of Hell are rising from the earth, heating up a giant cauldron full of greasy evil stoner riffs! Yes, it’s boiling hot and the witches, naked and depraved, are copulating around it with beasts such as prog, doom, punk, psychedelic, folk and so on. They’ve concocted for us a god damn album that’s almost sex in our ears!!! Favorite track: Where Dreams Go To Die.

about

Rising from the ragged ruins of misadventure comes a searing soundtrack of self-destruction in the form of
‘Into The Heart Of Darkness.’
The 3rd album by the Los Angeles based band, ‘Witches Of God.’

‘Into The Heart Of Darkness’ brazen riff-laden tuneage are surging sonic laments that defy traditions & blur boundaries. A haunting collection connecting tattered tales of psychic vampires, death wishes, deals with the devil, unruly urges, & more. Songs now living beyond the earthly confines of the body captured & mixed on analog tape & forever etched onto two HEAVY slabs of vinyl.

An invitation from ‘Thee Witches’ to traverse the tortured depths of depravity, ‘Into The Heart Of Darkness’ daring opening transmission, ‘Where Dreams Go To Die’ propels us on a 12-minute plus, 4-part journey, weaving a tapestry of ritualistic rhythms, primal pounding beats, scorching slide guitars & wailing woeful vocals thus instigating the debauched downward descent towards the annihilation of one’s self. ‘Into the Heart Of Darkness’ is an unrestrained trip spanning 13 ferociously feral tracks.

Track Name: Where Dreams Go To Die
Under my skin
There is something
Creepy crawling
Twisting turning
Spreading disease
Inside of me

Poisoning
Voices speak
Slithering around
Inside of me
Insidiously
Telling me
Feeding upon

Come ‘n’ play with us and wander
Where no one hears your cries
Terror and beauty come together
Where dreams go to die

Surviving on secrets
And borrowed time
Untruths told
Turned out to be lies
Feeding upon
The fear you hold dear

Poisoning
Voices speak
Slithering around
Inside of me
Insidiously
Telling me
Feeding upon

Pale white, pinned, and poisoned
A beauty so divine
With eyes wide shut I made my way
Where no one hears your cries
Come ‘n’ play with us and wander
Where dreams go to die
Track Name: For Madmen Only
I looked deep into the eyes
Of the murdering man
When fate dressed up as destiny
Fresh hells fell upon the land
As death looked back and smiled at me
Why, I’ll never know
A lonely voice called out my name
And beckoned me to go

Over the edge into the abyss
Unforeseen wonders are found to exist
Where you stumble there lays your gift
Wherever it happens and whatever it is

If I told you all my sins
If I told you all my lies
My deepest darkest secrets
Would you get inside?

Drifting through the darkness
I lived on borrowed time
Things got heavier
Than I was prepared to find
I yearned inside to know
What is déjà vu?
Hidden meanings now so clear
I know now what to do

Over the edge into the abyss
Unforeseen wonders are found to exist
Where you stumble there lays your gift
Wherever it happens and whatever it is

If I told you all my sins
If I told you all my lies
My deepest darkest secrets
Could you get inside?
Track Name: No Exit
Down darkened corridors at night
Past the crossroads on the left
I drank the tears of damaged goods
Took my punishment and wept

Fatal flaws and all
So-called spirits led the way
I heard golden voices
Whisper wishes of dismay

I accepted hell on earth
And a life forlorn
There was no escape
No exit no exit

Guilty as charged of my mistakes
And others yet to be seen
Forever doomed I sold my soul
My misery loved company

I felt hands
Come back to haunt me
Born of bad luck
And broken treaties

I accepted hell on earth
And a life forlorn
There was no escape
No exit no exit

I accepted hell on earth
And a life forlorn
There was no escape
No exit no exit
Track Name: The Magician
Illuminated instincts
Starry-eyed soul
Lit by dreams in the gutter
Rightful heir to a throne

Shivering charlatan
Fully formed at birth
Lost in feedback
Not long for this earth

Psychic assassin
Caught in a dream
The Magician exorcises
Life’s grand illusions

Suicidal heartbeats
Trials and tribulations
The magician has no more
Tricks up his sleeve

Hands so sleight
Chiseled nihilistic image
Smoke and mirror’s
Lethal hedonistic visage

Rude beauty racing
In love with self-mutilation
Unavailable lover
In danger of interpretation

Psychic assassin
Caught in a dream
The Magician exorcises
Life’s grand illusions

Suicidal heartbeats
Trials and tribulations
The magician has no more
Tricks up his sleeve

If I could cast a shadow
would I finally feel the pain?
Will I ever sleep at night
and walk throughout the day?
As I watch you bleeding out
Things will never be the same
As I watch you bleeding out
Will things ever be the same?
As I watch you bleeding out

Long ago it was told
The first time that I died
of what would be and shall become
As they buried me alive
Blinded by the light
I felt the end draw near
Life flowed freely from my veins
to a land of no more tears

If I could cast a shadow
would I finally feel the pain?
Will I ever sleep at night
and walk throughout the day?
As I watch you bleeding out
Things will never be the same
As I watch you bleeding out
Will things ever be the same?
As I watch you bleeding out

After day had dimmed to dark
The first day that I died
An uninvited guest
Inside of me came alive
Forever trapped a prisoner
Left wandering the earth
Eternally damned
With insatiable thirst

If I could cast a shadow
would I finally feel the pain?
Will I ever sleep at night
and walk throughout the day?
As I watch you bleeding out
Things will never be the same
As I watch you bleeding out
As I watch you bleeding out
Track Name: To The Devil
You promised me heavens
but delivered only hells
Turned my life on this earth
Into a lonely prison cell

To make something so magic
With my life I did wager
I’ve paid the price
With my soul for your favors

Dearest Devil please listen
To what I now say
I’ve been sickened for sometime
By the deal we once made

Dearest Devil please concede
I now know you’ll never love me
Though I’ve lived my life for you
Our time together is through

I burned the children
Of your enemies and watched
Their mother’s cry
Suffer pain and distraught

I got down in the garbage
Where sadness grew by the minute
Pressed flesh with filthy demons
And stole love from the innocent

Dearest Devil please listen
To what I now say
I’ve been sickened for sometime
By the deal we once made

Dearest Devil please concede
I now know you’ll never love me
Though I’ve lived my life for you
Our time together is through

Dearest Devil
Dearest Devil
Dearest Devil
Our time together is through
Track Name: Next To Nothing
Look at me what do you see
A success or tragedy?
Been all the way to hell and back
I got out of there with next to nothing

Was it by chance or circumstance?
Can’t tell the difference at a glance
Skin and bones all alone
I’m still kicking with next to nothing

You can’t lose when you choose
to go ahead with next to nothing
If what you want ain’t a lot
then you’ll always win with next to nothing

Truth be told which you behold
is a beauty you can’t control
Worse for wear without a care
I’m loving life with next to nothing

Don’t judge books by their covers
Coz’ what’s inside can’t be measured by others
Skin and bones all alone
I’m still kicking with next to nothing

You can’t lose when you choose
to go ahead with next to nothing
If what you want ain’t a lot
then you’ll always win with next to nothing x3
Track Name: Come Destroy Me
Something so wrong
That feels so right
Sick pleasures
Spoil me tonight
Leading me
So far away
Lips whisper
Let's bury ourselves today

So c’mon and destroy me
I’m ready to sacrifice everything
So c’mon and destroy me
Nothing but death will set me free

So depraved
I am not to blame
You killed me first
And threw me away
Sick fiends
Are we?
Finally
I feel so free

So c’mon and destroy me
I’m ready to sacrifice everything
So c’mon and destroy me
Nothing but death will set me free

This time
I must confess
I've hated you since the day we met
Kiss me goodbye
‘Coz I give no fucks

Without warning you come to me
Dark thoughts following
Make a bloody mess of me
Swallow my soul into slavery

So c’mon and destroy me
I’m ready to sacrifice everything
So c’mon and destroy me
Nothing but death will set me free

Lost in a world of pain
Down on my knees
I’m so unclean
So c’mon and destroy me
Track Name: Haunted By Heaven
Some Angels fly too high tanned by the moon
Glowing white at night kissing the sky
Clinging to oblivion too fast to live
Haunted by heaven too young to die

Waiting in line to die with ghosts of tomorrow
Waiting in line to die disgrace, shame, and sorrow

Can't count the times I've lost track
No matter how far we find our way back
Together again we watch the sunrise
Making no sense losing our minds

Haunted by heaven she comes along
Haunted by heaven in oblivion
Haunted by heaven she comes along
Haunted by heaven in oblivion

A love so sad I think we'll agree
There’s no way out of this tragedy
Indiscretions too many to mention
Numb the pain of your rejection

Waiting in line to die with ghosts of tomorrow
Waiting in line to die disgrace, shame, and sorrow

Can't count the times I've lost track
No matter how far we find our way back
Together again we watch the sunrise
Making no sense losing our minds

Haunted by heaven she comes along
Haunted by heaven in oblivion
Haunted by heaven she comes along
Haunted by heaven in oblivion

Back ‘n’ forth ‘n’ drawn back again
Can't let go of remember when
If only you knew where to go
Perhaps you could find your way home

Haunted by heaven she comes along
Haunted by heaven in oblivion
Haunted by heaven she comes along
Haunted by heaven in oblivion

If only you knew where to go
Perhaps you could find your way home
Track Name: Pound Of Flesh
False flags burning black
All I see is red
They cut you down bleed you dry
Leaving you for dead

We pay for every breath
With a pound of flesh

Bent over beliefs
Soliciting relief
Always first in line colluding with their kind

We pay for every breath
With a pound of flesh
