Black Bow Records are proud to announce that they will release Spellcaster, the debut EP by Witchapter. Formed by guitarist/vocalist Chris Grenfell in spring 2016 with Bobby Smith (bass) and Louie Spencer (drums) from the United Kingdom.
I also had the opportunity to interview the guys and would like to thank them again for taking time out for the interview, you can check out my interview with the guys on the site.
Witchapter will unleash their debut EP, which has 3 tracks of headbanging, sludge metal. The Ep starts off with song Veilled Aggressor , I do have to say is my favorite off the EP, with a heavy and melodic guitar riffs, powerful drumming and guttural screams by vocalist Chris Grenfell. All of the instruments have a heavy powerful sound to them all.
Through smoke and sulphur is more of an instrumental song, brings powerful riffs, pounding drum beats again, heavy bass throughout the song with the occasional sludge style scream vocals half way through the song.
The EP concludes with Everywhere I look I see my grave a whole 10 minutes of very effective pounding drums leading a thunderous march , heavy bass and razor sharp riffs which deliver a solid super driven tones whilst the fearsome tortured vocals kick back in.
Overall Witchapter are great sounding band,even if their music isn’t for every ones liking but for any fans of this genre should definitely check out the guys.
