Witchden fuse all their genres brilliantly to provide a great blast of Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs with extra lashings of Punk Rock and good old Rock and Roll to truly stand out from the crowd.

The band have just released their superb new album “Consulting The Bones”. A 9 song 44 minute blast of amazing Sludge and Roll riffs as they call their own blend of hard-hitting Stoner/Sludge Metal music.

This album just flat out rocks from start to finish. And has some of the catchiest riffs I have heard this year. This band really do know how to play a mean fine Sludge/Stoner Metal riff mixed in with Rock N Roll.

Not many bands capture these genres successfully but Witchden pull this off brilliantly to truly stand out from the crowd.

The album is full of great songs that will have you hooked in no time at all. The vocals are outstanding from start to finish that have the right amount of passion and anger to carry off the Sludgier moments of the album.

Standout tracks include – “Time To Burn”, “Ossuary”, “All Just A Lie” and “System Link”. These tracks capture this truly talented band at their best. Playing sublime heavy Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs with a great Rock and Roll vibe.

The band are superb musicians and prove this time and time again. The album is superbly produced as you can hear every note played to hard-hitting perfection.

I recommend you all to download this brilliant album for free from BandCamp (though you will have to download each song individually) now. These guys prove they have a talent for writing a great song. Some with superb sing-a-long lyrics along with top-notch headbanging riffs that will go down a storm in the live arena.

All in all a great album from a great band which I can’t recommend highly enough.

Brilliant stuff and highly recommended.
