Arkham Thoth or The Lamp of Witch? It can get confusing when the songwriter and the main members (Simon on vocals and Emily on drums) are the same. Well, according to Simon, TLOT has not come back to life, so the decision has been made to release their next 3 EPs under the Witch name. Covering the Lamp. "Get Thothed" collectible series. This second part, "Get Thothed Vol. II", consists of 4 TLOT classics, slightly re-arranged and recorded anew, and 1 previously unreleased track ("Serpentine"). It comes in cardboard sleeves with insert, and it's to be added to the slipcase which came together with "Vol. I" (released in April 2015) and which will also contain "Vol. III" with booklet with all lyrics (planned for April 2017). All adorned by beautiful and most fitting graphics from the end of 19th century. A must for all die-hard fans of this British metal bunch, and especially for those who prefer their more doomy side (as THE LAMP OF THOTH is definitely more doom than the more straightforward heavy metal ARKHAM WITCH), and for fans of bands like SAINT VITUS, PENTAGRAM, VALHALL, THE GATES OF SLUMBER, MANILLA ROAD, CIRITH UNGOL, HELL, WITCHFINDER GENERAL...
FOR FANS OF:
• The Lamp of Thoth, Saint Vitus, Pentagram, Valhall, The Wizar'd, The Gates of Slumber, Manilla Road, Cirith Ungol, Hell, Witchfinder General...
