WITCHES SABBATH "Witches Sabbath"

http://monarchmagazine.weebly.com/

Spanish duo Eduardo Salazar: guitars & drums and Luis Henríquez: bass & vocals are making their music as it was regular band with full line-up. At least, they sound mature on this album. 10 songs show them as pretty good musicians and they can write so ferocious and vengeance sounding black metal quite easy. The album is influenced by bands like Dark Funeral, Marduk, Besatt, except they blend more melodic riffs into the music. Most songs have extremely fast, war drum blasts, harsh and raw sounding guitars. The other importance to the music is their escapism into more monumental style of writing so it is not just mix of mayhemic aggression but also catchy motifs which are strong part of the album. Vocals sound almost like black metal but voice expressions are clearer. You can actually understand what the vocalist sings which saves your time reading lyrics. They have sort of magnetism to the music I like. I completely lost the sense of time to it which says, there is indeed, a lot of valuable music going on the CD. Production to the album is very good and music even better so for me it is like... Time well spend with black metal album.

WITCHES SABBATH "Witches Sabbath"

Some really cool and killer Spanish Black Metal (heavily Thrash Metal flavored) here up next... Witches Sabbath is the name of this horde, and this self-titled album is their third studio release since they formed back in 1997. Musically, Witches Sabbath clearly seem to know what kind of sound they are after on this very punishing, murderous, unforgiving and all-holy-icons crushing disc, not apologizing to anyone, but hammering giant nails through your trembling, weak limbs mercilessly, making you weep and suffer to death on your miserable crosses. Drummer Ruymán Alemán must also be one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse; his skin bombardment is simply ferocious and meant to make you deaf for the rest of your life. They employ well all the elements Black and Thrash Metal have to offer without forgetting some irresistible melodies. This album is definitely directed at the fans of such infamous hordes of Hell as Impaled Nazarene, Dark Funeral, Marduk and Funeral Age. Recommended.

WITCHES SABBATH "Witches Sabbath"

I have to admit that my CD collection contains less than 10 Black Metal releases so I am not sure if I am the right person to write reviews about that kind of music. On the other hand quality is not limited to a certain style so in rare cases an album outside of my comfort zone catches my attention. This time I am talking about the (meanwhile) 2-men project Witches Sabbath hailing from the sunny Canary Islands. Why these two fellas initially had the intention to make such dark and nasty music in this warm and friendly environment is not delivered. Like most BM albums I know this one is very fast and ferocious for the most part. The riffing is speedy and aggressive but also offers a lot of great harmonies. Accompanied by enough variation in form of melodic lead work and a dense atmosphere the mood can switch from uplifting and energetic to dark and melancholic. The drumming is relentless and full of blast-beat sections and consists of countless fills and interludes. There are certain parts when the tempo is slowed down a bit but before the listener might feel too relaxed the attacks start again. However, the music always keeps a certain groove so that even in the more chaotic sections the listener does not get lost. Similar to bands like Dark Funeral a lot of work has been put into creating atmosphere. Like mentioned this is achieved by the great guitar work but also by using some symphonic and ambient elements. While the level of aggression is quite high the music is also pretty catchy on the other hand. Most songs have a chorus that will stick with the listener after a few spins. The accessibility is further enhanced by the vocals which are a bit cleaner and smoother compared to other BM bands making the lyrics easily understandable. Of course they are still evil and sinister enough to shock your mother-in-law so nothing to worry here. However, for anyone like who gets stressed in case the vocals are too hysterical this is a nice touch. The sound production is modern and very powerful. While some purists might have preferred this album to sound as if recorded in the nineties I really enjoy the crunchiness and clarity of the mix. Each detail can be recognized and all instruments are treated equivalently. This record has been a nice surprise for me not expecting much but getting a nice slab of atmospheric music from a pretty unknown band.
