New release from: WITCHCRAWL – World Without End (February 21, 2020)
On February 21st, 2020, Katoptron IX Records is proud to present Witchcrawl‘s striking debut mini-album, World Without End.
Witchcrawl was formed in 2018 fueled by the passion of the traditional heavy metal sound. Although a new entity, Witchcrawl contain a wealth of experience in their ranks, including erstwhile members of such bands Akrotheism, Serpent Noir, and labelmates Primeval Mass. Together, in the early months of 2019, they created their first public work, the five-song/27-minute World Without End.
Beginning on a most bewitching note (literally!), Witchcrawl‘s debut mini-album pushes forward with power and poise, haunting atmosphere and heroic bravado alike. The band cites their central influences as Angel Witch, Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, Candlemass, Riot, and Griffin; although all certainly detectable, World Without End nevertheless exudes a rough ‘n’ ragged charisma all its own, its songwriting epic yet immediate, straightforward but never over-simplified. And the recording itself retains an earthy grit commensurate with those time-honoured influences.
The past is alive with Witchcrawl, and it’s just beginning with World Without End! In the meantime, check out the previously revealed lyric video for the mini-album’s title track, as well as the tracks “Eye For An Eye” and “The Doom of Hades”, all at Witchcrawl‘s official YouTube channel.
