Close The Hatch to release full-length album MODERN WITCHCRAFT on May 22

Ohio doom/atmospheric metal unit CLOSE THE HATCH will release their “Modern Witchcraft” full-length later month via Red Moth Records.
Independent of strict classification, yet beholden to the lineage of conceptual metal, CLOSE THE HATCH stride confidently in the footsteps of post and doom metal heavyweights like Neurosis and Isis yet emote with a conviction that’s distinctly their own.

With six studio albums under their proverbial belts since their 2011 conception, CLOSE THE HATCH has shown continual evolution in sound and structure, exploring darker avenues of punishing riffs while seamlessly intertwining atmosphere, melody, and ethereal elements over the course of their musical output.

“Modern Witchcraft” was produced by the band with Micah Carli (Hawthorne Heights), engineered by Carli and CLOSE THE HATCH guitarist Shaun O, and mixed and mastered by Carli with cover art by Matthew Mills [].
Modern Witchcraft will be released on CD and digitally on May 22 via Red Moth.
