ARKHAM WITCH joins our roster.
We are excited to announce the signing of the killer Heavy/Doom Metal/NWOBHM band ARKHAM WITCH and with this signing we are welcoming to our roster the first band hailing from UK.
We met and saw ARKHAM WITCH live when we went to the Doomsday festival in Wakefield, UK in February 2011. They instantly captured us with their incredibly catchy songs and the show that was pure mighty fun! We got their 2009 demo and later on their first album, which was a stellar piece of doomy Heavy Metal, so when they contacted us after their previous label closed, we eagerly offered them a deal.
ARKHAM WITCH was formed in 2008 by the couple behind THE LAMP OF THOTH (vocalist Simon and drummer Emily), so obviously there are many similarities to their previous band (which for now is on hold). It's still straightforward, Doom laden Heavy Metal of the old (read: with heaps of NWOBHM influences), occult, but with a tinge of humor, with these trademark bard/brigand type vocals of Simon. The group takes their inspiration from bands like DEEP SWITCH, HELL, MANILLA ROAD, WITCHFINDER GENERAL, JUDAS PRIEST, PENTAGRAM, SAINT VITUS (with Reagers) and CIRITH UNGOL.
The band has just finished recording their sophomore album, a follow up to last year's "On Crom's Mountain", entitled "Legions Of The Deep" and scheduled for October 2012 release. Meanwhile you can check the links to their pages to listen to some of their older recordings from ARKHAM WITCH page on our website, where you can also read the detailed biography and check some great promo and live photos!
