Come the Mountain
Based out of Portland, Oregon, Witch Mountain have been delivering apocalyptic, shuddering doom metal since their formation in 1997. In the early phase of their career, the band -- consisting of guitarist and vocalist Rob Wrong, bassist Dave Hoopaugh, and drummer Nate Carson -- made a name for themselves playing with the likes of YOB, Eyehategod, and Electric Wizard, and in 2001 released their debut, Come the Mountain. In 2002 the band slowed down, with the members focusing on family and other projects, but Witch Mountain found a creative resurgence in 2009 when singer Uta Plotkin was invited to join the band as their permanent singer. As a quartet, the band's sound found a new sense of ominous drama, and riding the wave of creativity, they released their long-awaited follow-up, South of Salem, in 2011. Later that year, Witch Mountain signed with label Profound Lore, and released Cauldron of the Wild in 2012. A European tour in support of Nik Turner’s Hawkwind preceded the 2014 release of Mobile of Angels, an album produced by Billy Anderson.
