However audiences try to define Sydney’s Mountain Wizard Death Cult, there’s no denying the impact their genre-bending brand of bone-crushing & hypnotising Metal has in the flesh and on record. Emerging from the darkness, MWDC return in with a statement on what’s to come in the form of Post Metal epic ORBITAL taken from their debut full length LIMINAL.
With their foundations solidified in the underground heavy community, 2022 saw the band initiate minds and souls across the country, with standout appearances at Festivals such as Blacken, Froth & Fury and even BIGSOUND, along with a myriad of headline dates in support of their previous stream of consciousness – INITIATION – showcasing the release of their debut clip, receiving airplay on Triple J’s The Racket.
Band guitarist Chris Chaplin shared his thoughts on the track – “ORBITAL is a truly organic representation of what Mountain Wizard Death Cult is and the connection the four of us share in the music we create. A reflection of the claustrophobic void we explore on our record LIMINAL. Perhaps more than anything else on the record, this song seemed to just pour out of us, with the majority being captured in a single live session. I feel like the presence in the room is really felt on the recording and is the closest thing to the mesmerizing effect we create live.”
MWDC have landed support slots for heavyweights such as HEXIS and King Parrot and deliver a sonically crushing experience like none other as a band to watch in the years ahead. The band will appear in venues up and down the East Coast this May through June.
