STONEWITCH "The Midnight Tales" [12" LP, Black Vinyl, Gatefold] *MINOR DAMAGE*
2018 - Heavy/Doom/Stoner from France
We received these covers with mild corner dings.
Hailing from Angouleme, STONEWITCH offers a masterful second album. The band delivers a personal kind of Heavy Metal, incluenced by the NWOBHM (IRON MAIDEN, ANGEL WITCH, PRAYING MANTIS, TOKYO BLADE...), Hard Rock from the seventies (SCORPIONS, RAINBOW, WISHBONE ASH...), without denying Doom Metal roots (BLACK SABBATH, SAINT VITUS, WITCHFINDER GENERAL...). Don't expect yet another "retro / revival" band, STONEWITCH asserts its identity and this album shows a huge potential through 7 new tracks for 50 minutes of ancestral Hard Metal. With members from SILVER MACHINE, FALL OF SERAPHS, THE LAST OATH, and ex-members from ACARUS SARCOPT, MANZER. Recorded at HELDSCALLA Studio by Iconoclast (SILVER MACHINE, ANNTHENNATH...)
