"Witchcraft is a record which conjures up the macabre essence of vintage Pentagram and of course Black Sabbath whilst incorporating influences as wide apart as the Jethro Tullesque prog of “Her Sisters They Were Weak” and the bludgeoning riffing style of early 70’s Bang in “I Want You to Know”. Elsewhere, “Schyssta Lögner” evokes memories of Sweden’s original hard rocking progsters Novembre and the inclusion of the cover “Please Don’t Forget Me” from Bobby Leibling’s 1970 pre-Pentagram outfit Stone Bunny pays homage to this criminally overlooked genius. While many of their more generic contemporaries are more conservative in their approach, Witchcraft is a band that can swing effortlessly from orthodox doom to blues, stoner rock to jazz whilst always remaining shrouded in the cloak of influence from some of the more obscure moments of the 70’s cult rock underground. Yet somehow, despite not adhering to any blueprint, the Witchcraft sound is more pure than any other act in the stoner/doom scene today."



"The songs tend to remind me more of the medieval sounds that Pentagram and Jethro Tull put across, lots of warmly overdriven guitars and soul and little acoustic guitar interludes. Make no mistake though, Witchcraft know how to kick out the heavy jams, too. Vocals throughout this CD are almost more Bobby Liebling then Bobby Liebling himself, I could say the same thing about them compared to Roky Erickson. It's a great vintage sound that really fits well. Guitars are very soulful and go from Pentagram to The Animals in 2 seconds. Very Classic, Very Dark, and Very Very GOOD!"

"Witchcraft is like Josiah. They both have locked into a sound from the past and did it with style. This is an album where you have to appreciate the tones happening in the music and the little changes thrown in are very cool."

Witchcraft
Firewood (2006) (CD)

Label: Candlelight   Origin: USA
Firewood carries on the slavish devotion to ‘70s doom rock that Witchcraft established with their self titled debut. And by “’70s doom rock” I mean Pentagram. Basically, Witchcraft are to Pentagram as Rhino Bucket are to AC/DC. The song remains the same and the song remains good. The songs have their own simple, faithful-to-the-influences charm that’s hard to ignore. The production is more professional sounding than on their self titled album, but it’s still p...

Witchcraft
Legend (CD)

Label: Nuclear Blast   Origin: USA
Bonus track. The band was originally started as a tribute to Pentagram, and they certainly wear their influence on their sleeve. Vocalist Magnus Pelander sounds almost like a dead ringer for the mighty Bobby Liebling, and the band still displays a flawless mix of doom and old school psychedelia. But the first thing you’ll notice upon pressing play on Legend is that it’s way heavier than anything they’ve ever done before. The classic cuts from their old LPs certainly roc...

The Alchemist (2007) (CD)

Label: Candlelight   Origin: USA
The Alchemist is definitely the band's strongest effort. The band's no longer so reliant on Bobby Liebling for inspiration that you feel the need to check the songwriting credits. Sure, I doubt the band will ever be able to fully shake the influence of their elders, but they compensate with superior songs that don't fit neatly in the "stoner" or "doom" categories. There's a grace and fluidity, and the band often plays with an almost progressive melody. There's ...
