The Seattle doom duo stun on their epic return, 'Mirror Reaper'. The prestigious, enormous work - a one continuous 83-minute piece - unfolds as a single track and sees the band explore the more meditative, melancholy and introspective aspects of their sound. 'Mirror Reaper' was engineered and mixed by veteran producer Billy Anderson (Swans, Sleep, Neurosis) and was released to mass critical acclaim on Profound Lore last fall. Bell Witch earned high accolades from the the likes of Decibel, Pitchfork, Loudwire, Stereogum, Bandcamp and many more, topping various end of year lists across the board. Listen to it now.

PITCHFORK: "Seattle doom metal duo Bell Witch's third album sounds broken down by life and death alike, but it scrapes together something like hope."
TINY MIX TAPES: "Bell Witch's vision of what lies beyond is filled with both rippling beauty and the looming threat of negation. Still, somehow, it's a tempting invitation."
DECIBEL: "The Seattle-based funeral doom duo don't so much write songs as build sonic ecosystems, interval by interval and frequency by frequency. As performers, the charge every gesture with dynamic impact, nuance, and a degree of psychic intensity rare even in metal."
STEREOGUM: "To listen to an album like Mirror Reaper is to surrender to it, to let it suck you in. Listening to Mirror Reaper, I'm not thinking about genres or influences or whether I like this album more than the band's last album. I'm not really thinking anything. I'm just feeling big feelings. Mirror Reaper, as a piece of music, exists somewhere in the beyond. It's a hell of a place to visit."
BROOKLYN VEGAN: "Knowing the backstory makes listening to Mirror Reaper even more intense, but even if you don't, it's such a powerful piece of music that you'll be able to feel that some type of major force was behind it."
TEAM ROCK: "...a bottomless, candlelit mausoleum within which to lose yourself, as terrifying bellows are propelled from the depths on gusts of ire, and soothed by mellifluous paeans sung by mournful acolytes. A dismally beautiful tragedy."
