Shadow Witch are a band from New York that plays a mixture of stoner, doom metal and grunge and this is a review of their 2016 album "Sun Killer" which was released by Snake Charmer Coalition.
A very distorted amp sound starts off the album before going into more of a hard yet melodic style along with some clean singing vocals and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads also use a decent amount of melody while t he riffs bring in the heaviness of doom metal.
A lot of 90's grunge and modern stoner rock elements can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while some of the faster riffs bring in the energy of punk rock and traces of psychedelic music can be heard on some of the tracks and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and one of the tracks also brings in a brief use of acoustic guitars.
Shadow Witch plays a musical style that takes 70's doom metal and mixes it with 90's grunge and modern stoner rock along with a touch of psychedelia to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Shadow Witch are a very great sounding mixture of stoner, doom metal and grunge and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sun Killer" "Blood On The Vine" "Headless Army" and "Shadow Witch". 8 out of 10.
