The sound, attitude and execution of Burning Witch is very slow, painful, and heavy. While the band was unabashed about their influences they effectively used these influences to create something unique for the time. Ultra-heavy, dark minimalist riffs, bombastic bass, and plodding war drums collided with vocals which alter between a nasal, melodic singing voice to a brutal, tortured demented scream/shriek. Burning Witch were truly the first band to incorporate the dark atmosphere of Black Metal with tortured doom-metal. Their influence is worn on the sleeves of many bands these days including: Graves At Sea, Goatsblood, Middian (YOB), Isis.

Blurred edges of consciousness voids: time manipulation, experiments in black down
-tuned drone and harrowing vocals. Members went on to: sunn O))), Khanate, Goatsnake, ASVA. An important artifact of the cryptic domain.
