WITCHES OF GOD: THEY CAME TO KILL
HARD TO CLASSIFY / HARDER TO STOP LISTENING TO
This is a really cool find. Each tune on this album has something different to offer. There are times in this album where stoner rock seems like the best label, and others that scream out punk and metal as well. I'm posting one tune from the album here but trust me, no tune is representative of what the album has to offer. Each track is unique and highly worthy in its own right. Here is the opening track, "We Are Not Alone."
If it sucks you in like it did me, you'll want to check out the whole album on bandcamp here: https://witchesofgod.bandcamp.com/album/they-came-to-kill, where you can buy the whole album for 7 bucks (less than a dollar per tune).
Do they have any releases before this one? Yes, sir. In 2013 Witches of God released its first album, "The Blood of Others", which is equally awesome. Somehow as a new band they managed to land Scott Weinrich (aka "Wino") for some guest vocals on this track, "The Horror."
It's really hard to find info on the band members themselves. These are the only pictures I could find of the band, the first one from the bandcamp page and the second one from metal-archives.com
Names? Can't find 'em. Just increases the aura of mystery for the band. Maybe if I had bought the physical copy instead of the digital download? For now, their names are the Witches of God. So far this is my favorite album I've found in the early stages of 2016. Hope you enjoyed listening.
Enjoy the Superbowl - don't think it's gonna be the thriller that last year's was (I think Denver is getting smoked again), but I'm still going to watch. And maybe I'm wrong. There's a reason I don't bet on football. Until next time! -ULTRA
