Blackened witch house act Morningstvr launches debut

The blackened witch house project, Morningstvr has just released its debut solo album, “The New Salem” via Blvsphemy Records. The New Salem is available on CD and digital formats via Blvsphemy Records

Morningstvr is a Los Angeles based producer and occultist. He was diagnosed with the autism spectrum disorder as an infant and is the son of a well-known paranormal investigator. “As an adolescent who was often misunderstood by my peers, I developed a deep appreciation for the macabre and identified with the title character Frankenstein from Mary Shelley’s beloved novel of the same name.”

Morningstvr cites Xasthur, Dark Throne, Flesh and Plvgues as his key influences and coined the term ‘blackened witch house’ to describe his music. In March of 2021 he was signed to Blvsphemy Records, a witch house label based in Chicago, IL where he continues to thrive with his music.

Here’s the video for “Dreaming Of The Damned” to get an idea how the project sounds.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
