ARKHAM WITCH have a problem: they just can't stop creating new music, and all of it kicks arse. Why is that a problem? Well, they can't go to the studio to record it all. Luckily, they can do pretty well on their own. The first nine tracks here are actually studio recordings: the whole "Give Me Death by Heavy Metal!" EP from 2022 (for the first time on CD) and two brand new songs. The remaining seven tracks are demo and rehearsal recordings; most of them previously unreleased in any form. Unapologetic METAL attitude seeps from every note on this compilation - an attitude that is sorely lacking among many metal bands and on all overproduced albums nowadays, both musically and lyrically. It's 70 minutes of audaciously bold-faced heavy metal infused with doom and thrash. It is like a fine sonic potpourri in which you can detect the heady notes of MANILLA ROAD, the earthy tones of PENTAGRAM, the spicy laments of HELL and the rich overtones of CIRITH UNGOL, all mingled together in a harmonious scent for the ears. If you want the definition of "old school" and don't mind the sound that's a bit rough around the edges, look no further than this collection of songs by the Britain's own Viking pirates of doom!
