In summer of 2015 Seattle’s doom fixtures Bell Witch released “Four Phantoms” on Profound Lore Records, the highly anticipated doomed follow up to the band’s now classic debut full-length “Longing” (2012). But “Longing” was not the band’s first effort. Bell Witch first appeared in 2011 with a well-received demo that was simply titled “Demo 2011.” At 37 minutes this recording was a massive statement of purpose which far-eclipsed the "demo" status implied by the name. It was recorded by Brandon Fitzsimons (Wormwood), the same engineer that worked on the band's debut “Longing.” Demo 2011 showcased Bell Witch’s minimalist depressing sound that has proven to be timeless, relevant, and undeniably sad. The band is heavy. The Flenser is proud to unleash this new pressing of a classic moment in contemporary US doom history. Artwork by the band’s own Adrian Guerra (RIP) presented with an updated layout and in a more sustainable package than the initial pressing.
