BAND Burning Witches
ALBUM DANCE WITH THE DEVIL
LABEL NUCLEAR BLAST
OUR RATING 84/100
Third album by the HM band from Switzerland out on March 6th on Nuclear Blast and first with new (awesome) singer LAURA GULDEMOND.
Surely a more various album than previous HEXENHAMMER. The trademark is CLASSIC HM, squared and strong, and the five girls are able to do the best thing.
They are able to hit, to be epic when it needs..a rich album where new singer provides a large range of solutions, from melodic vibes to growl.
After an intro, squared LUCID NIGHTMARE is the first and strong shot; all sounds great, solo parts are smart and rhythm section are sure and definite.
On the same line the title track before the mad run of WINGS OF STEEL
One of our favs is the grandiloquent SIX FEET UNDERGROUND, before BLACK MAGIC, where we can find new territories to explore.
Hints of growl in the strong SEA OF LIES, while THE SISTERS OF FATE sounds more teutonic and influenced by masters as ACCEPT.
We have time also for another gem, NECROMICON, while great gallops and musicality enrich THE FINAL FIGHT.
After THREE FOLD RETURN, the last shot is a cover of BATTLE HYMN (MANOWAR) with Ross Friedman and Mike Lepond as special guests.
SURELY TO SUGGEST..BURNING WITCHES..THEY ROCK!!!
