Burning Witch/Crippled Lucifer/Southern Lord Records/1998 CD Review

Burning Witch where a doom/death metal dand with a blackened touch from Seattle, Washington and this is a review of their 1998 album "Crippled Lucifer" which was released by Southern Lord Records.

Drums are mostly slow beats with no fast playing or blast beats while the bass playing has a very dark tone and it is all doom metal riffing, as for the guitars it is all slow doom riffing as well as some distorted noise elements with no guitar leads and solos and ther is an acoustic guitar that is used in one song.

Vocals are a mixture between high pitched screams with some clean singing, while the lyrics are a mixture of depressing and occult themes, as for the production it has a very heavy sound which captures all of the instruments.

In my opinion Burning Witch where a great doom band and if you are a fan of doom/death with a 70's metal edge you should ad this album to your collection. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Warning Sins" "Sacred Predictions" and "Tower Place". RECOMMENDED BUY
