Wild Witch are a band from Brazil that plays a very classic and traditional form of heavy metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Burning Chains" which was released by Inferno Records.
A NWOBHM style sound starts off the ep along with some hard rock/metal style guitar leads and solos which leads up to melodic female vocals becoming a huge part of the recording and the music is in the early 80's direction as well as utilizing some back up shouts at times and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
The old school retro metal vibe continues throughout all 4 of the tracks that are present on this ep and the singer brings back memories of some of the more aggressive female metal vocalist of the early 80's and the music is so heavily rooted in that era that this could off easily been released in that era and the last track is a cover of Tokyo Blade's "Rock Me TO The Limit:"..
Wild Witch go back to a time where heavy metal was just heavy metal and there where no other sub genres and the band has nothing modern in their sound and they stick to a pure form of metal, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover history, mythology and fantasy themes.
In my opinion Wild Witch are a very great sounding traditional heavy metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Trail Of Bones" and "Witchripper". 8 out of 10.
