“Riff-lovers everywhere gather around because heavy riff disciples Margarita Witch Cult are here to become your torchbearers of unholy din.” – GigRadar
“Margarita Death Cult aren’t just an awesome band name, they’re an awesome metal band.” – New Noise
Born from the murky industrial depths of Birmingham, UK, Margarita Witch Cult’s self-titled debut studio album is a tour-de-force in classic metal, hard rock, doom, and mind-melting psych, a timeless, merciless beast – one that will chew you up and spit you out, yet somehow keep you crawling back for more! A total must-have for fans of dark and boogie-laden heavy à la Green Lung, Orange Goblin, Orchid.

About the new single, the band comments: “»Death Lurks At Every Turn« is a hair-raising thrasher- breakneck snare rolls, snarling vocals, feral guitar solos and pile-driving bass all collide in beautifully chaotic fashion in this relentless rager from the Birmingham band’s upcoming debut studio LP. Part thrash havoc, part doom-laden grunge; pure pandemonium. This 2-minute aural assault is an unfiltered, unrelenting reminder of the inevitable- a gut-punch with pure, demented precision.”

About the album: A thunderous drum fill propels you into opener »Diabolical Influence« – a lurching behemoth of a tune that makes easy bedfellows of crushing stoner riffs, Latin incantations, and a simply humongous chorus. The pace quickens with the frantic »Death Lurks At Every Turn« – a hair-raising thrasher of breakneck snare rolls and unruly guitar solos. »The Witchfinder Comes’ only furthers the sense of foreboding, as tales of torture and pleas for exile fall on the ever-deafening ears of the listener. »Be My Witch’ comes in hot and heavy as a grungy ode to the forbidden, and the blistering »Annihilation« concludes side A with speed-freak ferocity.
The more adventurous and immersive side B is kick-started with »Theme From Cyclops« – the deft chops of all 3 members being undeniable as we gallop into the ambitious, face-melting journey that is »Lord Of The Flies« – a belting doom groover that culminates in a classic guitar & bass dual to rival even the most virtuosic of axe-wielders. As we near the end of our perilous sonic expedition, »Aradia« serves up an instrumental serving of pure downtuned filth, with sleazy swagger and tasteful shredding that give extra provenance to its author’s deep bag of tricks. The killer blow comes in the shape of the simply savage »Sacrifice« – an unholy exhibition of undeniable force. The duality of the track makes for an experience that leaves our sweet listener reeling- the bludgeoning weight of its monstrous main riff giving way to razor-sharp verses and a tripped-out, mind-bending psych jam- only to come crashing back to crushing reality as the final, fatal notes ring out.
