WITCHCURSE - HEAVY METAL POISON
Metal To Infinity
lately we’ve got Cauldron from Canada. Enforcer, Bullet, Katana and so on from
Sweden. White Wizzard from the US… But beware as Greece sends their very own
Heavy Metal patrol out on the road to kick some ass! Yes, I am talking about
is a rather recent band from Thessaloniki, Greece who formed in October 2005 and
released their first full-length album on September 20th through
Inferno Records, the record company known for recruiting some of the best new
kick ass bands around the world!
band has had a few changes in their line-up throughout the years but finally got
a stabile line-up ready to take the world by storm! In 2005 they released a
rehearsal tape called “rehearsal 18/12/2005”, after this they had some
changes in their line-up and with this new line up they recorded their first
demo called “Heavy Metal Poison”. Then again they had changes in the line-up
as drummer L-Drac got replaced by Paul. With their new line-up they recorded the
cassette tape “Demon’s Warning”. After that recording they also recorded a
7” Split with Witchtiger and a split LP with Witchunter from Italy.
4 headed band is definitely influenced by some of the greater NWOBHM bands ever.
In the past they have been the opening act for bands like Grim Reaper, Praying
Mantis, Attacker, Leatherwolf, Manilla Road, Tokyo Blade, Iron Kobra… What is
of course very promising for a new band of this caliber! So here they are with
their first full-length album that features 11 tracks + a bonus video.
CD features as I mentioned before 11 tracks of pure uncompromising Old School
Heavy Metal. The album is a really big hope in my opinion for Old School
metalheads. Who else would be headlining our festivals in a few years? The
oldschool sound of the recording really gives the album the extra touch other
new bands don’t have, which is really great! The combination of the two guitar
players with one bass/vocalist and a drummer brings us back a line up how it
should be. Also the rough voice of the singer is great in combination with the
old school music.
who likes NWOBHM should definitely buy this album as it will become a classic
over the years! Thumbs up for Witchcurse and of course Inferno Records for
releasing such a great album! http://www.myspace.com/witchcurse6669
