Atmospheric doom metal unit Close The Hatch releases Talking Heads cover; MODERN WITCHCRAFT full-length out now via Red Moth


Ohio-based atmospheric doom metal unit CLOSE THE HATCH recently unveiled a cover of Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer."

The rendition follows the recent release of the band's lauded Modern Witchcraftfull-length. 
"The band has been actively working on bonus material for Modern Witchcraft," the band states. "This track by Talking Heads is just one of a handful that we are working on remotely during quarantine. We want to record covers that represent our influences as musicians but in a way that feels like our material. It is our goal to have people view these songs in a different light. 'Psycho Killer' was chosen first mostly in that it was completed first but with the chaos going on, it is sadly fitting. It is obviously up to the listener to find their own meaning. Stay safe out there."
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, the band's Modern Witchcraft full-length was released on CD and digitally last month.

For orders, visit the CLOSE THE HATCH Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION and all other streaming outlets HERE where the record can be streamed in full. 
 
Independent of strict classification, yet beholden to the lineage of conceptual metal, CLOSE THE HATCH strides 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.
