WITCHFINDER Hazy Rites – Vinyl 2xLP (black)

Pressing info : First press on black vinyl 2xLP.

French doom sludge unit WITCHFINDER took the metal scene by storm, spreading out their heavier-than-heavy mucky riffs with a highly psychedelic potential. Gloomy and haunted voices in the vein of Monolord or Windhand are blended with saturated Bongzilla or Weedeater vocals like, and fat riffage. Since their formation in 2016, and off of the back of their debut eponymous full-length, the Clermont-Ferrand-based occult doom trio quickly garnered a sizable following with many prolific support slots, opening for stoner and doom behemoths such as Red Fang, Corrosion Of Conformity, Dopethrone, Ufomammut, Conan, Monolord, Kadavar or The Necromancers.

With ‘Hazy Rites’ WITCHFINDER is throwing in plenty of hardcore and sludge influences to their already massive and doom-laden sound.

“As impressive and memorable as it is thunderous.” DISTORTED SOUND MAGAZINE

“The hum of the riff is accompanied by a fearsome fuzz as the deafening rhythm section kicks in.” GHOST CULT MAG

“Und trotzdem stellt Hazy Rites zufrieden und sorgt für gediegene Hochstimmung, wirkt die Scheibe doch wie ein Malstrom an hypnotischen.” LEGACY MAGAZIN

“Un son ample et massif, riffs heavydemment écrasants et des mélodies qui, même si elles invitent peu de notes, font pour grande partie l’intérêt de ce disque, et la différence avec de nombreux autres du même genre.” NEW NOISE MAGAZINE

“Witchfinder s’apprête à graver son nom sur les tables de loi du doom. Rien de moins. Et cela, grâce à ce Hazy rites, l’un des meilleurs albums doom de ces dernières années.” DESERT-ROCK.COM
