Limited to 500 copies, repress of long sold-out debut demo. Following the critical acclaim of 2017's Mirror Reaper, one of the most praised metal albums of that year.

The band initially made their presence known in the US doom scene with a well-received demo in 2011.

At thirty-seven minutes, this recording is a massive statement of purpose which far-eclipsed the "demo" status implied by its name.

It was recorded by Brandon Fitzsimons (Wormwood), the same engineer behind the band's first effort, Longing.

Demo 2011 showcases Bell Witch's heavy-yet-minimalist sound now lauded as timeless, relevant and undeniably sorrowful.

The Flenser is proud to unleash this new pressing of a classic moment in contemporary US doom with artwork by the band's own Adrian Guerra (RIP).

"Bell Witch turns funeral doom and its moribund focus into a beautiful hymn." Pitchfork // "Bell Witch have an uncanny ability to make their metal feel ancient, spiritual, even liturgical." Tiny Mix Tapes.
