Veteran atmospheric post-rock trio, ESBEN AND THE WITCH, has recently launched their own Berliner Berg Belgian IPA – Dull Gret. Brewed by Berliner Berg brewmaster Torsten Vullriede and ESBEN AND THE WITCH drummer Daniel, the Belgian yeast yields a hint of spicy clove while Slovenian hop “Styrian Wolf” — developed by the Slovenian Institute For Hop Research And Brewing — delivers intense blueberry and floral notes and a proper amount of bitterness.
In 1563, Peter Brueghel painted a vision of an unruly woman, leading a female army to pillage hell. She is Dull Gret. This is ESBEN AND THE WITCH‘s vision, their call to arms; a tribute to the women out there who dare to go against the grain, despite the battles they encounter on the way.

ESBEN AND THE WITCH recently returned from a successful European tour. The band has two additional performances booked with more to be announced in the weeks to come.
ESBEN AND THE WITCH released their stunning fifth full-length, Nowhere, late last year via Season Of Mist Records. At once dense, shadowy, and inspired, Rachel Davies‘ powerful voice is a clarion call leading the way through a storm of forceful movements and riffs. The band notes of the release:
“Nowhere is a verdant garden teeming with beauty and awe, a place where giant birds eat the dead and the lost seek solace deep in the forests; where women are warriors and freedom and liberation rule supreme; a place where darkness is explored not feared and shadows become reminders of the light. We all belong in Nowhere. Find your peace.”
ESBEN AND THE WITCH is still evolving toward the height of their powers, and Nowhere furthers all facets of their dark and stormy heavy rock.
