Witchwood - "A Taste of Winter" (video)

Witchwood (logo)
Οι Witchwood μας έρχονται από την Ιταλία (Faenza), προέρχονται από τις "στάχτες" των The Buttered Bacon Biscuits κι αγαπούν το 70s hard rock, το οποίο "παντρεύουν" με progressive / folk / psych ήχους, ενώ κάποιες φορές "ξεφεύγουν" σε πιο Southern Rock μονοπάτια.

Χαρακτηρίζουν την μουσική τους κάπως έτσι: «a mix of hard rock, progressive, psych, southern, with an obscure and 70's vintage attitude». Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει δύο δίσκους το "Litanies from the woods" (2015) και το "Handful of Stars" (2016). Ο τρίτος είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Before the winter" κι αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει το φθινόπωρο...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Witchwood born from the ashes of the cult band Buttered Bacon Biscuits in 2014. BBB released "From The Solitary Woods" (Black Widow Records) in 2010. The album has been very well reviewed by many Italian and international music magazines and websites.

BBB played many gigs around Italy, also supporting important bands like Uriah Heep, Jethro Tull, Bud Spencer Blues Explosion, etc. They also recorded the cover “A National Acrobat” for the Black Sabbath tribute “Hands Of Doom” released by Mag Music Production in 2013. After the BBB split some members of the band (Ricky, Andy, Steve and Sam) along with the new bass player Luca Celotti decided to start a new project, Witchwood.

Those musicians have been active for decades, with past recording experiences and collaborations with artists such as Martin Grice (Delirium) and Nik Turner (Hawkwind). The debut album "Litanies From The Woods" is the result of 2 years of songwriting, long and hard rehearsals and recording sessions and it has been released by Jolly Roger Records on CD and Digital in May 2015, and on 2 LP in October 2015.

The album features ten tracks for 78 minutes and it is a long journey from 70’s hard rock, to progressive, psych, southern rock and blues. The record received excellent reviews both from Italian and international press, and also very good selling-results (the CD has been printed 3 times and the first 500 double LP print sold out in a few months and then reprinted).

Witchwood were voted as "best emerging band in 2015" by Rock Hard Italy readers, and played the final match in the Wacken Metal Battle competition. In 2016 its time for "Handful Of Stars" featuring 3 brand new tracks and 2 covers ("Flaming Telepath" from Blue Oyster Cult and "Rainbow Demon" from Uriah Heep), a kind of homage and tribute to these two great bands, so important for Witchwood's musical journey, and an unreleased version of the suite "Handful Of Stars" (from "Litanies from the Woods") with a new breathless intro, for 45 minutes of music.

"Handful of Stars" was the right way to celebrate the appreciations received for the debut album, to introduce the new guitar player Antonino Stella, appreciated session man and along time Ricky's friend and the new video clip for the title track, made by the artist Dimitri Corradini. Also "Handful of Stars" received excellent critics and sales feedbacks.

Witchwood appeared with two tracks ("Rock'n'Roll suicide" and "Child Star") in the "Tribute to the Madmen" (tribute to David Bowie and Marc Bolan) and played live in Malta and Germany in prestigious festivals with band as Hell, The Doomsday Kingdom, The Vintage Caravan, Lucifer's Friend, Cirith Ungol, Count Raven... The brand new album, entitled “Before the winter”, will be released in Autumn 2020 on Jolly Roger Records (2Lp, Cd, Digital).»
