Witchcraft-Legend (2012)

There's many bands heavily influenced by the 70's but rare are those that do it with as much talent as Witchcraft do. Their new record Legend is a new testimony to that and also show that they continue bit by bit to craft their own style as well.  at times their powerfull and melodic heavy metal / hard rock still reminds strongly  bands like black sabbath (it's evident on the song called Dystopia. the closing song has a riff that's close to the one in Sweet dreams by Eurythmics and covered by Marylin Manson but I won't tell you it's an influence from the 70'!). but these moments are less present than it used to be in their first records and the voice of their singer has enough personnality to make them instantly recognizable. But above all they write really good songs and plays it perfectly.

  1. One of my favorite albums of the year, but it took me a couple of listens to really get into it. At first I really missed the warm production style of The Alchemist, but eventually I realized the cleaner sound really showcased Magnus' voice.

  2. it also took me a few listens to get into it. then I realised it's a "grower", the more you are familiar with the songs the more you enjoy the different details, the riffs, the melodies, the vocals...really a good record indeed.
