KARYN CRISIS is a name worthy of more praise and attention. While select circles of people know and appreciate her prior vocals with the critically-acclaimed Crisis from 1993-2006 many are still naive to her influence and impact. This demure girl raged harder than many men slugging it out with impactful live performances at hardcore and metal shows screaming oftentimes like a demon, others singing like an angel. She led the way and has become an influence for female-fronted extreme bands. And then she disappeared... until now. Karyn returns with her stellar new project, Karyn Crisis' Gospel of the Witches, and a fabulous new album, "Salem's Wounds", on Century Media Records (March 2015). The genesis of Gospel of the Witches began unwittingly in February 2009 when Karyn Crisis met Ephel Duath guitarist Davide Tiso in Tuscany, Italy. They lived and played music for a month in a small haunted house in the countryside, in the middle of an olive field. Aradia, the ghost of an ancient Italian witch, made her presence adamantly clear and began to teach Karyn the Old Ways on a daily basis. Spending time together, Karyn and Davide grew inseparable and decided to return together to the U.S. to form a band. Once settled in the Bay Area, they would spend the next few years working hard to find the right musical expression as a result of all the internal changes brought on by Aradia becoming part of their lives: magic, healing, ancient history, the natural laws and connecting to Spirit in all things. Davide channeled the songs that would eventually become the debut of Karyn Crisis' Gospel of the Witches.
