CLEVELAND, OH (December 11, 2023) — In a remote Ohio forest, Olathia dedicated 12 hours to filming The Forest Witch video. Towering trees, blistering sunlight, and uneven terrain put us on our asses a few times, but the sweat flowed, metal jammed, and the witches delivered the desired essence of creepiness. Gabe Fedor of Riffster Productions worked his magic, turning a sunny day into an eerie tale through video. You can watch the video below:

Talking about the new video, Chris E. lead singer adds, “We wanted to create a fast paced, heart pounding urban tale. Picture a car careening into a ditch, saved by a resilient Forest Witch emerging from magical woods. The driver undergoes a profound transformation, blurring reality and enchantment. Uncertainty, temptation, and consequences weave through this dark narrative. Is the trade divine, or has the Forest Witch cast a spell to free herself?”

On November 17th Olathia released their new full length album “The Forest Witch” on all digital platforms and on CD from the Olathia Bandcamp page. Purchase and listen to The Forest Witch:

Metal Tim Henderson from said this about Olathia… “Imagine a reincarnated Nevermore meeting Savatage with soaring female vocals and you’ve got the thrash-tastic Olathia that will surely have you doing a double take, they are that good.”

Having heard a early preview of “The Forest Witch”, Bill Peters from WJCU adds, “The Forest Witch pulverizes you from the cauldron of metal with a relentless sonic attack that never let’s up. Olathia’s HEAVIEST offering to date!”
