Burning Witch was a doom metal band from Seattle, WA, formed in 1995 by Stephen O'Malley (guitar), Greg Anderson (guitar), Edgy 59 (vocals), Jamie Sykes (drums) and G. Stuart Dahlquist (bass). O'Malley, Sykes, and Anderson had all previously been members of [a=Thorr's Hammer]. Anderson departed early on when he moved to Los Angeles and formed [a=Goatsnake]. The band recorded their first 12" EP, "Towers..." in 1996, although it would not see formal release until 1998. Afterwards, Sykes was replaced by B.R.A.D., who appeared on the the "Rift.Canyon.Dreams" 12 EP", also released in 1998. The band split afterwards when Edgy 59 quit to join another group. Greg Anderson's [l=Southern Lord] Records would release the 2 EPs on CD in 1998 as the "Crippled Lucifer" compilation (an expanded version of "Crippled Lucifer" was issued in 2008 and contain extra tracks).

Following Burning Witch's split, Anderson and O'Malley formed [a=Sunn O)))], [a=Teeth Of Lions Rule The Divine], and [a=Pentemple] and also appear separately in a number of different acts. Dahlquist appeared on recordings by Sunn O))) and Goatsnake and also formed [a=Asva] with B.R.A.D.
