"Every track is a winner. Every riff is massive. The production is raw and warm. Everything sounds big. Everything sounds heavy. This is surely exactly the record that Earth Witch set out to create and I applaud them highly for it. Fantastic and heavy stuff and one of the best albums I have heard so far this year." - Richard Maw (The Sludgelord)

"There's nothing more refreshing than super catchy bluesy sludge riffs to get you going through the day." - Frank Godla (Metal Injection)

"The gritty chased vocals, the throbbing pulsating doom and the righteous heavy blues. It is all there on the new Out Of The Shallow album by the illustrious Illinois trio Earth Witch. With the extreme paradox of creating simple and effective tracks that sound wild and colossal at the same time. The perfect amalgam of something stoner, classic metal and every bit of heaviness they could get their hands on. Nothing short but pure gold my friends! Pure fuckin’ gold!" - Joop Konraad (Stoner HiVe)

Track Name: Guts
Unreal, the images and the sound
See the hawks, they fall down to the ground
Betrayed by their leader and friend
Sacrificed to the demons in the end

Behold, they've taken his hand and his eye
Never mind to the damage to his mind
Big sword, he will seek his revenge
No time for the wounds to properly mend
Track Name: Starfighter
Starfighter your engines dying, life support is low
Refusing to accept this as your end

Starfighter, sought fame and glory, in battles among the stars
Dying alone, search for the meaning, WHY?!
Track Name: Lovecraft
I’m feeling ill at ease with the nature of reality
I’m losing sleep from visions of things I can’t perceive
I feel so lost on these black seas of infinity
I feel so lost on these black seas of infinity

I’m turning pages of collections of strange accounts
What does it all mean to me, to what does it all amount
I feel so lost on these black seas of infinity
I feel so lost on these black seas of infinity
Track Name: Butterfly
Please don’t ask me where I’ve been
Innocence is running thin
I’m right where I need to be
Not a place for you to see

I’m sleeping, you’re dreaming
Oh butterfly
Fly away from me
Oh butterfly
Spread your wings

I feel you following me
Obstacles, they must impede
What can I do to make you cease
Why can’t you just leave me be

I’m sleeping, you’re dreaming
Oh butterfly
Fly away from me
Oh butterfly
Spread your wings

Hey you why don’t you stay with me
We can be as one tonight
Later when, we part your wounds can’t heal
You will stalk me through my life

I’m sleeping, you’re scheming
Oh butterfly
Fly away from me
Oh butterfly
Spread your wings

I’m sleeping, you’re scheming
Oh butterfly
Fly away from me
Oh butterfly
Spread your wings
Track Name: Riff Rider
Riders at night, smoke in their sights, shows them the way
A gathering mass, rites from the past, bring forth the riff-age
Unlocking myths, fortuitous gifts, yield from their suffrage
Open the door, like many before, what will you find?

Riding at night, green torches light, unveils the passage
A journey complete, a pilgrims retreat, under the mountain
A sight to behold, of secrets untold, the riffs shall abound
Unearthing of sounds, from underground
Track Name: Green Torch
With a Green Torch light my way
With a Green Torch light my way
Track Name: Mermaid
Baby, know I want you
Lost you in a typhoon
Always searching the sea
As I chase you, you are hunting me

Beneath the sea she waits for me

Now i’m feeling danger
From this lovely siren
Lurking through the water
Appears venus, drags me down to drown

Beneath the sea she waits for me
Track Name: Pilgrim
Traverse the ocean to land on the sands of
The beach of a whole new world
You seek you god in the wilderness frontier
Salvation remains unfurled
You’re cultivating a harvest from soil
You try to live off the land
Your crops are failing, the livestock is ailing
Is something living off you?

Let go of faith and embrace your sin
You can’t deny there’s a witch within

Through darker hours, the milks turning sour
You wonder what you will do
Little pilgrim you dig in your faith but
You can’t live by faith alone
Without some bread, your faith leaves you wanting
To end the hunger and pain
Just write your name in my book and I’ll show you
To take the left handed path

Let go of faith and embrace your sin
You can’t deny there’s a witch within

Write your name with pen in hand
I’ll guide you if you can’t
The fear falls to your waist side
Through darkened forest land
A light is up ahead
You feel your body rising
Track Name: Earth Witch
In a time without the mark of man
The Earth Witch roamed across the land
With all her love she fostered the world

The Witch wields nature in her hand
She brings life to the desert sand
Her magic working all through the night

The Goddess Witch gave birth to man
With all her care she tried to guide his hand
To be harmonious with the Earth

Greed and ambition stole the heart of man
He brought death to the fertile land
His lust for power consumed his mind

The Witch cried for her child in man
A mother’s love was all she ever had
Her suffering has crippled her heart

The Witch rejected her bereavement and grief
Reluctantly she sowed the seeds of disease
Her child returned to the loam of the Earth
