WytchCrypt biography
WytchCrypt is a one man doom metal band project from Dennis MONTGOMERY. Dennis began playing keyboards at the age of 4 and branched out to include drums and bass by his teenage years.

In the late 70's, he played bass in ELFHOUSE and several other San Jose area prog bands. Tired of the endless drama of band relations he got a reel-to-reel and formed GENERAL COSMO, his first one man band back in 1981.

As time went on, he added electric guitar to his stable of instruments and began the one man Neo Prog band MUTINY IN JONESTOWN in 1987, eventually releasing 42 albums (so far).

In 1998 he formed another one man band called MORPHEUS to explore experimental electronic music releasing 13 albums (so far).

Later, in 2014 he decided to mix two of his favorite things, doom metal and mellotron, into a new project called WytchCrypt. ''I always wondered what a mix of early BLACK SABBATH and KING CRIMSON might have sounded like. I wanted to combine the sludgy downtuned doom of 70's Tony IOMMI with the dissonance of early CRIMSON, and mix it with loads of mellotron and the most bizarre time signatures I could come up with. When the dust had cleared, WytchCrypt had been exhumed into the light.''

As time has gone by, WytchCrypt has evolved from a strict combination of doom metal and mellotron, to a melting pot of doom metal, mellotron, prog, vocals and techniques of 12 tone music created by classical composer Arnold Schoenberg. In prog circles, the band is classified as "Experimental/Post Metal" but in doom metal circles the band is classified as "Progressive Doom". Either way, there are not many bands exploring the same synthesis of influences as WytchCrypt.
