Mojo’s Pick of the Week – Witchcryer “Cry Witch”

WitchcryerWitchcryer’s debut release “Cry Witch” is a hypnotic, riff-heavy throwback to the dawn of doom and heavy metal. Fresh off their first US tour in support of “Cry Witch” (previously only available on CD), they have just signed with Ripple Music and re-released their debut on all platforms and vinyl.

Austin, Texas’ old school doomers Witchcryer cites Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Blue Oyster Cult and St. Vitus as influences, and you can hear all of them in the title track “Cry Witch”. Frontwoman Suzy Bravo has some serious attitude in her powerful, gritty vocals. Founding member Jason Muxlow (ex- Earthen Grave) provides the heavy guitar riffs, while drummer Javi Moctezuma and bassist Marilyn provide the doomy battery. Love the bass tone on this album. Pick this up, you won’t be sorry!

Check out the title track’s trippy official video below.

Mojo’s Pick of the Week – Blackwülf

BlackwulfI don’t even know how I stumbled onto the Bandcamp page for Oakland’s Blackwülf but when I sparked up the stream for their latest release, I got the same feeling I get when I find random money in my pocket. Billing themselves as doom or stoner rock, Blackwülf sounds like a throwback to late 70s heavy metal powerhouses like Judas Priest and Black Sabbath. Killer heavy riffs and a very organic sludgy sound. A new local favorite for me!

Blackwülf’s latest release “Oblivion Cycle” (December 2015) is available on vinyl, CD and download through Ripple Music, and download/streaming is available from Bandcamp.
