ACID WITCH – Witchtanic Hellucinations
Originally released by Razorback in 2008, ACID WITCH’s cult Witchtanic Hellucinations debut comprises 13 terrible tales of dark and heavy DOOM METAL brewing from the unspeakable hag’s psychedelic cauldron of death! A true melting pot of twisted death metal riffs swarming with tripped-out leads, demonic death-growls from hell, and a cackling corpse-full of catchy songwriting that will warp your mind until you pass out from the fumes of cursed Witch-smoke! Behold the swamp spells and the cult of bloodthirsty Witchwolves as they devour your soul! The ACID WITCH is born…let the Death-Trip begin!
WITCH CROSS – Fit For Fight + All That’s Fit For Fighting
All That’s Fit For Fighting is the official anthology release featuring the entire WITCH CROSS discography, including the cult classic Fit For Fightalbum, their five demos from the ’80s, the Are You There 7″ EP, and the ultra-obscure BLOOD EAGLE ’81 demo (pre-Witch Cross). You get everything here but their live recordings & personal rehearsal sessions. Easily one of the best Danish heavy metal bands of all time, who also recorded their album with Henrik Lundat at Easy Sound Recording, the same studio & engineer to spawn such classics as MERYCFUL FATE’sMelissa and Don’t Break The Oath. A mandatory release for all Heavy Metal Maniacs! A stream of WITCH CROSS’ heavy metal magick can be heard here: http://hellsheadbangers.
