Connecticut's Nightbitch are yet another band in which the seemingly omnipresent Phil Swanson has turned up. He lent his unique vocals to the band's first EP, Sex and Magic, in 2010, but has moved on and has been replaced by drummer Chris Taylor at the microphone. Where Sex and Magic had an occult, Doom-tinged sound, Nightbitch's new EP, Chainmaker, does not. It is musically similar to Danzig with groove riffing (not the bad kind), huge bottom end and the strong voice of Taylor, whose voice is a close approximation of Glenn Danzig's. The two original tracks on Chainmaker (song three is a cover of Deep Purple's "Into the Fire") could easily be from Danzig's debut so if you've heard that album, you've heard Chainmaker. It isn't bad but the loss of Swanson has taken away a lot of what made Nightbitch so distinctive.
