One of the band's best, proof these Swedes are rejuvenated
COMMENTS:
Since the hiatus in 2006, Swedish act Witchery seem to be rejuvenated at this juncture--two albums in two years. New record 'I Am Legion' is blackened extreme metal with the familiar backbone of Slayer riffs and battery. I'm loving the riffs, vocals and these frosty melodies, draped in black but frigid to the touch. It's probably the most extreme of the bunch, with "True North" and "Amun-Ra" bordering on 90s black metal with short, abstract riffs punctuated with speed. Guests include Hank Sherman, Mike Wead and Nicholas Barker.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Satyricon, Venom, Slayer
