Witchunter Tales

Rated 5/5 (100%) (1 Vote)

Thunderstorm were a largely underrated Doom band from Italy, and they produced five albums of varying quality over a career that spanned almost twenty years. This, their 2002 epic Witchunter Tales, is probably their best work overall.

Clearly deep in the same vein that produced bands like Solitude Aeturnus, this is heavy, Candlemass-inspired Doom that is a cut above the rest of this band's output for no one reason you can pin down. It has a heavier production, better riffs, and better vocal melodies. The whole combines into a package that is heavy yet hooky, with a sound that is familiar without being imitative. If you enjoy second-generation Doom bands like Orodruin and Pentagram, then this is one that should be in your collection.
