Seems like everywhere you turn there's a band that's hearkening back to that triple OG sound of bands from that tipping point in musical history when rock turned into metal. Some of them actually do a good job of giving you an old school sensibility with a modern sound. But few are so committed they record with all analog equipment like Witchcraft. These Swedes know how to tap into that old sound and make it sound new, and their 2007 album is being released here in America through Metal Blade Records.
The Bottom Line: This is a really authentic sounding record, but you have to go into it expecting that you're gonna hear some raw rock n' roll as if you just stepped through a time warp into the smokey 1970s. I've heard them compared to early Sabbath, but they're really more like The Doors if you ask me. All in all, if you're looking for competent, old school rock (keeping in mind this is old school), you'll prolly enjoy Witchcraft's nostalgiac extravaganza.
