Doom metal seems to flourish in the Pacific Northwest. It's probably all the rain and lumberjacks. Enter Portland's Witch Mountain, probably the first doom/stoner metal act i've heard with a female singer. Uta Plotkin's soulful leads and harmonies over the usual metal growling and crunch adds an almost triumphant level to the jams. Good shit. Listen to "Beekeeper" below and grab the album from Profound Lore.
