“The looming riffs evoke the early King Woman EP Doubt, and the cadence of Green’s vocals call to mind those of Pallbearer’s Brett Campbell..” — Audiofemme
“A doom communion.” — CvltNation
Brooklyn, NY trio Priestess, a favourite live act in the local scene, today announced their official name change to Reverend Mother. The band has shared the announcement via CvltNation along with a short, eerie video shot on Super 8 film that features some of the band’s upcoming EP. Watch and share HERE.
Brooklyn three-piece Priestess has reincarnated as Reverend Mother, due to putting out their first S/T EP under the new moniker in Spring 2021. They are still led by songwriter and Black Sabbath enthusiast Jackie Green, who cut her teeth as a guitarist in local bands like Evil Daughter.
Despite the name change, the band remains steadfast in their devotion to doom metal and psychedelic rock, with the EP offering up the same looming riffs, skuzzy reverbs, and haunting vocals Green has studied and refined to make her own.
