The Offering

Rated 4/5 (80%) (5 Votes)

Sometimes you look at an album cover and you know exactly what the band will sound like, and this is one of those times. Wild Witch are an avowedly old-fashioned band clearly aiming to evoke those rough and ready sounds of the 80s like Tokyo Blade, Angus, or Warhead. They have cool riffs with just enough meat on them, a pure metal sound with just a kick of hard rock attitude, and vocals that are good enough but could be way better. The riffs are solid, the songs maybe go on a little long and repeat a bit much, but the lead playing is top notch. Bassist/vocalist Felipe Rippervert is on key and gets the job done, but his slightly nasal voice doesn't have much range, and he certainly doesn't handle the vocal duties with anything resembling charisma. This is a band with a hell of a lot of potential, and if they tightened up a bit and got a better singer they could rule.
