ACID WITCH - Witchtanic Hellucinations - CD - Hell's Headbangers - 2008

review by Mladen Škot

 

Great to hear someone enjoying their doom. Acid Witch evidently refuse to stand still, and even within their "genre," they go above and beyond the call of duty, making everything count. Catchy through and through, as heavy as a really heavy thing, not afraid to crush and speed up, and sounding alive and breathing, Witchtanic Hellucinations is still as doom as they come. Be it the hissed and growled vocals, or the spacey, otherworldly piercing leads on guitar or keys, there is always something happening. The songs have personality, they are never too long, and the whole experience is an insight into someone's twisted, hellish nightmare... And somehow, the protagonist manages to get out of it with a smile on his face. Or was it maybe "manages to go even deeper?" Hellucinations are rarely this much fun to listen to. (8/10)
