Doom metal greats Bell Witch have booked a full a European tour for this fall. Each night they will perform their 2017 album, Mirror Reaper, in full. The 83-minute opus was released via Profound Lore. All dates are on sale now.
Mirror Reaper live at previous shows, the full album has only been performed once in full, at this year’s Roadburn Festival – complete with visuals created by Taylor Bednarz, and vocals from Aerial Ruin’s Erik Moggridge. This full-scale performance will be replicated in its entirety at a number of special, seated shows across Europe at the end of the year.
The band comments:
“We performed the first half of Mirror Reaper this past April in much of Europe, and we’re very excited to return and perform the album in it’s entirety. This will feature Erik Moggridge of Aerial Ruin performing in the second half of the song with us. It’s humbling to have gotten such a positive reaction to this album from so many people.”
In late 2017, director, Taylor Bednarz, created a feature-length music video to accompany the Mirror Reaper album. The trailer for the film is available to view here.

One track spanning a massive 83 minutes is going to be an intimidating listen no matter which artist spawned it, but when that track is as grief-stricken, slow-building, and earth-shatteringly heavy as Bell Witch’s Mirror Reaper (Profound Lore), it’s going to take more time and patience than some people can muster. Given the deserved attention, however, Mirror Reaper is easily one of the most breath-taking releases of the year. This is a tribute to a departed friend, burdened by bereavement but tragically beautiful, and is not for the faint of heart.Continue reading
