The philosophy behind Witchskull's take on the essence of primeval heaviness is simple enough. Listen to the first few seconds of the Australian trio's brand new, second album "Coven's Will" and if the vibe doesn't instantly grab you by the balls and the synapses then maybe you walked in through the wrong door. Channeling the spirit of the metal gods and injecting every last moment of their rampaging anthems with a jolting dose of lysergic menace, Witchskull are the unstoppable real deal.
Boasting eight, groove-driven slabs of infernal fury, "Coven's Will" pulls off the neat trick of sounding simultaneously timeless /and/ timely, as the fundamental principles of our beloved genre are fed through the Australians' pitch-black prism and spat out in a shower of wild, hallucinatory devil blues.
A crazy-eyed howl of discontent from the sun-scorched wastelands of Australia, "Coven's Will" is a ferocious statement from a band that seem to be hitting its stride and gaining power by the hour. Newly signed to Lee Dorrian's revered Rise Above Records imprint, Witchskull has found the perfect home from which to spread an irresistible gospel of unholy heaviness. Hell's gates have opened, the riffs are coming and the Coven compels you to surrender your soul...
