Clermont-Ferrand’s doom sludge quartet Witchfinder are powered by gloomy keyboard effects, haunted Dopelord-like vocals, thunderous riffage and a bone rattling rhythm section. This relevant visual and sonic follow-up to Witchfinder’s latest effort (»Endless Garden« EP, out June 22) features spectral atmospheres, explores the horror topic and spreads a massive blast of fuzz. The addition of keyboardist Kevyn Raecke propels their already ultra-thick sounding into a cathedral-esque dimension; both theatrical and heavy.
The psychedelic touch is cleverly highlighted here over a substantial doom cushion. One can appreciate some faster sections and a nicely worked heavy rock riffage which spices up this record and prevents it from drowning in any easiness. With their new album »Forgotten Mansion«, Witchfinder dust off the genre without flaying its foundations at any time.
The massive sounding is the work of Haldor Grunberg of Satanic Audio (Behemoth, Me And That Man, Dopelord), who also sings on the track »Marijuana«.
