ΔWitch HouseΔ


Well, this is the official thread for all things Witch House/Rape Gaze.
Here you could discuss, debate, and share Witch House.


ΔWhat IS Witch House?Δ
Witch House is a subgenre of Post-industrial. In retrospect, it's a mish-mash of various genres. Some genres that influence the aesthetic most would be Noise, Drone, Chillwave, and Chopped and Screwed Hip-hop. It also has influences from Gothic Rock, Post-punk, and Horrorcore.

ΔHow popular is Witch House?Δ
Witch House was very underground, but since last year, It has garnered some more mainstream success. Pitchfork media have brought up and even covered different artists within the genre on numerous occasions.

ΔWhat is the history of Witch House?Δ
Witch House first started as a meme joke started by Dark Wave/Noise Pop producer Pictureplane.
The term 'Witch House" was used to describe occult House music. It was also a major referenece to Ethereal Wave/Witch House group SALEM, who were the main pioneers of the genre(along with oOoOO and White Ring), since the Salem Witch Trails of Salem, Massachutsettes, was occult. Eventually, magazines like Pitchfork began considering it a real genre for marketing and gimmick purposes. Since then, there have been many artists slowly entering the scene.

ΔAre there any subgenres of Witch House?Δ
No. Witch House is a considerably new genre, so it doesn't have any subgenres. But there is relatively dark Witch House that sticks to its Post-Industrial roots, and Witch House that holds the aesthetics of Chillwave.

ΔWhat are some Witch House producers?Δ
Well, here's a list of the most prominent artists within the genre.
SALEM
Modern Witch
oOoOO
White Ring
GuMMy†BeR!
Balam Acab
RITUALZ

ΔWhat are some good Witch House songs?Δ

Oh, yeah. I forgot about him. He sounds like he's trying to be Modern Witch, though. Their music sounds so alike.
