With attitude and a confident swagger, Witchskull waste no time in firmly making their mark with their stoner-esque take on desert metal.
The songs are instantly familiar, yet don’t suffer from sounding done-to-death or stale. In fact, in the band’s capable hands, this material comes to life and has an energy about it that defies you to stand still.
There’s nothing original or new here, don’t get that impression, but that’s fine as that’s clearly not the point. Witchskull are all about having a blast and kicking out the jams. The songs on The Vast Electric Dark do just that, and they do it with style and panache.
This is 38 minutes of simple, honest music from a band who obviously love what they do.
Give it a listen.
