Witchkiss - The Austere Curtains Of Our Eyes

Label : Argonauta Records | Archive under doom metal

Release type: Full-length CD

Marcel H. : Witchkiss is a doom trio that hails from the US and doom band number I don’t know how many with the word Witch in the band name. Seeing such a band name I, somehow, always expect a powerless singing female vocalist who tries to make it sound all occult and such. The initial vocals of opener ‘A Crippling Wind’ are, however, extreme vocals which are almost grunt like. Later in the song clean female vocals kick in that do come across quite powerless but have something eerie over them. This vocals are a good addition to the extreme ones. Musically it, unfortunately, is a dime a dozen doom lightly referencing bands such as Electric Wizard and Witchsorrow and it is too monotonous to captivate for the full forty minute duration of the album. Please more musical variety the next time around because the potential is certainly present.
