Witch Mountain is a doom metal band from Portland, Oregon.

Formed in 1997,[1] Witch Mountain recorded a demo, released their first full-length album, and toured both nationally and locally. After a 2002 tour with Eternal Elysium, the band slowed activity while Rob and Dave attended to their respective families and their other band Iommi Stubbs, and Nate worked on other musical collaborations and his booking agency, Nanotear. After a July 2009 show opening for Pentagram, guest singer Uta was asked to join the band as main vocalist, marking a revival of the band. Witch Mountain's second full-length album, South of Salem, was recorded six months later at Smegma Studios,[2] produced by Billy Anderson, and released in April 2011,[3] coinciding with a SXSW tour.

In November 2011, Witch Mountain was signed with Profound Lore.[4] As of their February 17, 2012 South of Salem CD release show, Dave parted with the band to concentrate on family and other projects, leaving bass duties to Billions and Billions member Neal Munson. Witch Mountain are about to release their third full-length album, Cauldron of the Wild, with an expected release date on June 12, 2012.[5]
