Witch In Her Tomb/Malefic Maleficarum/Crippled Sounds/Tyr Records/2012 Ep Review


  Witch  In  Her  Tomb  are  a  1  man  band  from  Chicago,  Illinois  that  plays  a  very  raw  and  primitive  form  of  black  metal  mixed  with  punk  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  ep  "Malefic  Maleficarum"  which  was  released  as  a  joint  effort  between  Crippled  Sounds  and  Tyr  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  playing with  a  good  amount  of  blast  beats  being  thrown  into  the  music,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  primitive  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording,  as  for  the  synths  they  are  only  used  on  the  last  song  and  they  bring  a  dark  and  atmospheric  sound  to  the  music.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  primitive  black  metal  with  punk  and  noise  with  3  guitars  being  utilized  as  well  as  some  soft  and  clean  playing  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  are  all  high  pitched  black  metal  screams,  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  a  concept  and  cover  dark  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  heavy,  raw  and  primitive  sound  with  the  songs  being  short.

  In  my  opinion  Witch  In  Her  Tomb  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  raw  and  primitive  black  metal,  noise  and  punk  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  yuo  should  check  out t his  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "X".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
