The group Witch was born from a marriage of apparently contradictory influences. J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. renown and his long
time friend Dave Sweetapple were interested in forming a hard rock band. They found willing and able conspirators in Kyle
Thomas and Asa Irons, members New England avant-folk outfit Feathers. On their eponymous debut album, this line-up mounts
a mighty sonic tumult that harkens back to classic heavy metal sound of early 70’s outfits while still sounding modern in its
assault (and without falling into the ubiquitous “Stoner Rock” pigeonhole).
