Longing is the debut studio album by the Seattle-based doom metal band Bell Witch, released on November 13, 2012 through Profound Lore Records. The album began Bell Witch's trend of slow, low, and mournful music for which the band would become known. Andy O'Connor of Pitchfork magazine praised the album's haunting, melancholic nature, and highlighted the vocals as particularly effective in evoking a bleak atmosphere.
Seattle based duo BELL WITCH have, since their inception in 2010, carved a unique niche in the metal scene. Utilising only bass, drums and vocals to create a mournful, melodic take on minimalism and an ethereal but crushing approach to magnitude. Their most recent LP, Mirror Reaper (Profound Lore) was recorded by Billy Anderson and is their most focused, structured and melancholy release to date.
As stated earlier, Bell Witch stays true to its sludge-doom genre, and this is proven in Longing. Tortured screams, shrieks, and bellows give the music an echoing, horrifying vibe, but that is not even the half of what this album has to offer. The guitars brandish trenched, low-tuned riffs to engulf the listener in slow brutality. However, when they are not doing that, they instead deliver deep, haunting, and sluggish melodies that really underline the sorrow of this record’s atmosphere.

Beneath the Mask" feels like a sort of interlude, and is the most minimal track on the album. It features only the bass playing a sparse melody that slowly changes over time, droning over a sample from the film The Masque of the Red Death, making for a sobering moment of reflection. Longing wraps up with "I Wait," a twelve minute dirge. It begins with heavy distortion and a fairly sinister chord progression, then cuts the distortion and summons droning vocals before exploding again with a piercing scream and more spine-chilling howls from Guerra. Nearing the midway point,.
Upon its release in 2017, Bell Witch's Mirror Reaper cemented the Seattle duo's status as one of doom metal's most formidable acts. Its single, monolithic track also served as a tribute to the band's former drummer Adrian Guerra, who tragically passed away the year before. Five years earlier, on the back of a highly praised demo, Bell Witch released their debut album, Longing. Featuring the original line-up of Dylan Desmond and Adrian Guerra (RIP), Longing was recorded by Brandon Fitzsimons (Wormwood, Samothrace)
