For lovers of heavy music, Sabbath Warlock brings you a four song debut EP "The Six Feet Under Sessions" available now.
Veteran NYC guitar player, producer, recording and live sound engineer Joe Hogan likes to stay busy making some of the heaviest music. When not recording bands like Atomic Bitchwax, Nebula or Chrome Locust, you might find Hogan mixing the hardcore matinee at A7, or making the wheel louder with The Analog Mafia polydriver boost pedal. The rest of his time is spent playing guitar, all guitars all the time. “I was extremely excited when asked to play with Sabbath Warlock. And even more so once we got in the studio and started recording. Can not wait to unleash our first EP on the world, “The Six Feet Under Sessions”.
On the drums is the heavy hitting powerhouse, Leesa Harrington-Squyres. Hailing from Houston,TX, she is an award winning musician who began her professional career at the age of 15. She has toured with Carolyn Wonderland (John Mayall's Bluesbreakers) and a number of blues greats including Milton Hopkins, Trudy Lynn and Lavelle White. She is noted for her drumming in the world-renowned all-female tribute Lez Zeppelin. Leesa was also a long term member of the iconic Texas band Josefus who have been dubbed “The Lost Pioneers of Heavy Metal". You can’t get more authentic than that!
Gyda Gash made her imprint in the heavy music scene playing bass in the seminal doom band Angel Rot, the brainchild of White Zombie axe man, Tom Five. She is the founder and bassist of the acclaimed all female tribute band, Judas Priestess. Gash is also the bassist in The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black with the legendary Kembra Pfahler. “Sabbath Warlock is giving me the opportunity to return to writing and playing my own music in the style that truly speaks to my soul."
Joining them is vocalist Mark Mitchell. A native of Atlanta GA, with his long blonde hair and boyish good looks, Mark’s earthy voice lends a genuine sound to the music.
