Witchskull confirmed for new tribute compilation from Magnetic Eye Records’ Redux series in honour of AC/DC

Magnetic Eye Records announce that Australian doom metal band Witchskull will participate on new tribute compilation »Best of AC/DC« from their Redux series.

Along with »Best of AC/DC«, Magnetic Eye Records is also celebrating one of the most important albums ever by one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Legendary album »Back In Black« will be re-imagined under the name »Back In Black Redux«.

The label comments: “No tribute to AC/DC would be complete without Aussie representation, and for that we’re stoked to announce the inclusion of Canberra doomsters Witchskull on our »Best of AC/DC« double LP. Their specific song will be revealed soon, but suffice to say these fellows turned in an absolute monster of a track that immediately sets a bar. Pre-orders open now via our Kickstarter!”

From Magnetic Eye Records:

With last year being the 40th anniversary of the AC/DC classic »Back In Black«, we’ve chosen to re-imagine this undeniable rock ‘n’ roll masterpiece from end to end as the latest homage in our acclaimed Magnetic Eye Redux Series.

»Back In Black Redux« presents new takes on all ten cuts from AC/DC’s seminal seventh album. This was the first record to feature new singer Brian Johnson following the death of original larger-than-life frontman Bon Scott, and music historians agree that there was massive pressure on both the new singer and the band to deliver. Even so, nobody could have anticipated that they’d create one of the most important and impactful rock albums ever, and we can’t wait for you to hear what your favorite bands from the stoner/doom/riff-rock scene have done with some of the most iconic rock songs of all time!

Along with »Back In Black Redux«, we also present our »Best of AC/DC« companion album, a 2xLP extravaganza featuring 13 bands offering their renditions of all-time classics and deep cuts from across the AC/DC catalog. Featuring an array of absolute heavyweights and hungry up-and-comers from the heavy rock underground, we’ve got no doubt you’ll be stoked to experience these massive interpretations like you’ve never heard AC/DC before.

The Magnetic Eye Redux Series features hand-picked classic albums from across the history of rock and metal re-imagined in their entirety from start to finish by bands we love. Hand-picked artists from throughout the rock and metal world each pick a track to make their own, bringing these milestone records into the new millennium with crushing heaviness and searing energy. To date, we’ve produced Redux versions of Pink Floyd’s »The Wall«, Helmet’s »Meantime«, Black Sabbath’s »Vol. 4«, Hendrix’s »Electric Ladyland«, and »Alice In Chains’ Dirt«, which have included artists like Matt Pike, Pallbearer, The Melvins, All Them Witches, Khemmis, ASG, Zakk Wylde, Mark Lanegan, Scott Reeder and tons more.

Join us for our sixth foray into Redux territory as we pay proper respect to the Australian legends.
