With singer Uta Polkin, who joined the band of the Witch Mountains in 2009, the band from Portland had gained a lot of self-confidence. In addition, they now had a figurehead for his mystically bewitched band name. And so now "Mobile Angels" - after "Cauldron Of The Wild" the second album with the singer - also presents itself opulent. It can be divided into two parts, the doomed first and the psychedelic second, which makes the album make sense in the vinyl version. "Psycho Animundi" and "Can't Settle" are the names of the two monumental doom rockers with which Witch Mountains exhaust all available hardships. With "Your Corrupt Ways (Sour The Hymn)" the sound becomes even more epic and wider, even though the basic essence here is still the Doom. Here the guitars get the opportunity to put themselves in scene with appropriate solos. After the short interim ballad "Mobile Of Angels" a mighty wave of harmonic dooms rises at the end. Yes, harmonious and Doom, this is possible in a way with Witch Mountains.
