WITCH: Self-Titled: CD

Jun 20, 2007

As you can probably guess from the band name and the fact that it’s on Tee Pee, Witch plays stoner rock. But, to their credit, it’s considerably better than the typical tuned-down riffage of every other goddamned stoner rock band in the world. While they definitely have a Kyuss thing going on, I hear a bit more authentic U.K. doom influence, a la Orange Goblin or Cathedral. The airy female vocals are a nice change as well. This isn’t something I’d listen to everyday, but if I ever find myself smoking grass in a graveyard behind a Scottish castle, I’ll probably wanna put this on.
