Ash Street

If patience really is a virtue, then Witch Mountain ought to be on a particularly sinister motivational poster espousing the same. In the first 12 years of their existence, they released only one album,  ...Come the Mountain; but in the last two years, Portland has become at least 80 percent more ominous, thanks to their South of Salem LP and this year's follow-up, Cauldron of the Wild. The jaw-dropping catalyst of this dark resurrection is Uta Plotkin, whose voice just might be the most stunning ever to soar in front of a monolith of doom metal. The songs on Cauldron of the Wild tend to be a bit shorter, though none falls under five minutes long. This works so well because of the band's commitment to songwriting and musicianship, and the spiky, nearly psychedelic guitar riffs that create the deliciously menacing atmosphere. REBECCA WILSON
