The recipe here is familiar…Take a heavy dose of Ozzy-era Sabbath…drop a hint of newer doom/stoner/sludge (Kyuss, Sleep)…stir and let bake…and what you get is a batch of Witch. And it tastes delicious. Not everything has to sound new and revolutionary and Witch certainly doesn’t. Considering Sabbath, there have been bands who have done things the best, and why not follow the pattern of what works, but take it your own way.
That’s what you get here. Witch is definetly one of those bands who will get labelled a Sabbath rip-off, but for those who don’t mind that comparison, this is another great stoner rock album. “Seer” and “Changing” are the two standout tracks on a rather short album, but that’s not taking anything away from the rest of the tracks, which are all pretty solid. Not the best of this genre, but an enjoyable listen nonetheless.
