Reach higher skies with ‘Casting The Circle’ RIGHT NOW
HIGH PRIESTESS’ 2018 eponymous debut on Ripple Music quickly turned heads in the heavy music underground, leading to tours in the US and Europe. Their sophomore full-length “Casting the Circle,” releasing in April 2020, seasons the psych-doom cauldron with keyboards, tribal percussion, signature harmonies and grandiose prog rock arrangements, all while pushing the boundaries of just how “heavy” heavy music can be. ‘Casting The Circle’ will be available on April 10th through Ripple Music. The artwork was designed by Jill Colbert at Manfish Inc.
HIGH PRIESTESS is a psychedelic doom trio from Los Angeles convoking crushing riffs drenched with lush harmonies and hypnotic eastern themes. Formed in 2016 by Mariana Fiel on bass and vocals, she recruited Katie Gilchrest on guitar and vocals and Megan Mullins on drums through an online ad. Since then, they have created a sound that echoes both past and future incarnations of doom and psychedelia. Tours, both domestic and abroad, will find HIGH PRIESTESS embarking on their mission to spread the wicked gospel of thick, mossy fuzz and rhapsodic melody. Basically, wherever this band can go, they will go. Prepare to worship at their altar.
