Karyn Crisis’ new project Gospel of the Witches has inked a new deal with Century Media.
The former Crisis vocalist is working alongside Ephel Duath mastermind Davide Tiso on the group.
“This band began five years ago in Tuscany, Italy, as an alchemical journey between Davide Tiso and myself as we searched for a way to musically honor the Witches who came before me and who have been guiding me in Spirit, teaching me their Ancient Ways,” explains Karyn.
The album was financed by fans via websites like Kickstarter and Etsy; then Karyn, together with Tiso, Ross Dolan (Immolation), Mike Hill (Tombs) and Charlie Schmid (Vaura), recorded the 13 songs at The Basement Recording in North Carolina with producer Jamie King.
Upon completion of the album, Karyn began shopping the album and reconnected with Century Media president Marco Barbieri, who had signed Crisis back in 1993 when he worked at Metal Blade Records.
“In my opinion, Karyn is a true renaissance artist and I am intrigued by anything she puts her touch on,” explains Barbieri. “She remains an undeniable icon in the annals of hardcore and metal with her vocal and live performances, and I am pleased that she has been re-infected by the muse and is sharing her undeniable talents again for longtime fans as well as a new generation.”
The project, Macro says, “has her fingerprint all over it, lending an ear to early influences, but here she and her band take the listener on all sorts of new journeys and adventures musically, vocally and emotionally. I am proud to be working with Karyn again.”
