Band mastermind Mark Greening explains: « For me, The Final Exorcism is a look into demonic possession, and the inner darkness of the subconscious mind that can take you to an occult place. Once you’ve been to that place, there is no coming back. I’d like to think that we achieved exactly what we set out to do with this record. Once again with the help of John Stephens, we created the sound we were looking for at Chuckalumba Studios, in the dark woods of Dorset. The entire album was pretty much recorded in three days. After mixing the tracks, we sent them to the wizard of mastering, Doug Shearer. And so, The Final Exorcism was locked into place. Enjoy the horror.“

Haunting vocals, heavy riffs, Fuzzed bass, savage drumming, dead witches will take you to another world… a world of darkness. DEAD WITCHES is the brainchild of drummer Mark Greening (founding member of Electric Wizard, Ramesses and With The Dead). 2017 for Dead Witches began with the release of their first album, “Ouija”. Featuring original guitarist Greg Elk and vocalist Virginia Monti (Psychedelic Witchcraft), and Carl Geary on bass “Ouija” was phenomenally received by press and fans alike. 2018 will see the release of Dead Witches’ follow up record, featuring new members Oliver Irongiant on guitar and Soozi Chameleone on vocals. Dead Witches made their grand return to the stage with a Saturday night appearance at the iconic Desertfest London 2018, introducing new vocalist Soozi Chameleone (Satlan) and guitarist Oliver Irongiant (Grave Lines, Sea Bastard) to the world.
DEAD WITCHES roar back from the studio on two wheels, Chuckalumba, where the fabled sessions for « Dopethrone » and « Let Us Prey » by Electric Wizard as well as DW’s debut « Ouija » were recorded. Sessions began on the full moon of 25th August in the heart of the New Forest deep in Dorset, the hallowed home of 90’s doom legends Electric Wizard’s folklore, marking Mark’s fourth time at Chuckalumba. John Stephens, operating the living museum of antique analogue and valve driven studio gear and tape machines, captured a world of demons and possessions… A banshee wail of woeful siren song weaving a sinister world of horror doom, through waves of burgeoning fuzz and hell sent thunder on the drum kit. Realizing the magnitude of what they had committed to tape, DEAD WITCHES began to seek Doug Shearer, wizard of mastering and the final member in the coven. His previous work includes Electric Wizard’s classics « Dopethrone » and « Let Us Prey ».
