Coven's Will

Rated 3.33/5 (66.67%) (3 Votes)

Grab your black lights and feathered roach clips, Australia's Witchskull are here to take you on a trip back to the '70s when bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin were dishing heavy, fuzzy proto-metal and doom. Coven's Will is the band's second full-length and it is soaked with reverb and layered with thick slabs of bottom end that will rattle your ribcage if you stand too close to the speakers. Sure, the singer's voice and vocal lines are more in line with modern stoner rock, but they take a back seat to the leaden riffery of cuts like "Spyres" and "Raven." This has an authentic old school sound with just the right amount of occult overtones. If your tastes extend back past the early '80s, Coven's Will is worth a listen. Don't forget to turn on the lava lamp.
