Witchcraft sound like an entirely different band compared the slow, plodding Sleep and Sabbath worship of their early material. ‘It’s Not Because Of You‘ from their upcoming release Legend sounds a lot more upbeat and rocking, more in the vein of The Sword (who they actually shared a split with a while back) than anything else, and while it may not be the most original thing you’ve heard all year, you’ll catch yourself unaware humming that chorus. Legend is set to be released September 25th and is to be their debut release for Nuclear Blast, marking the bands return after a 5 five lull, but by the sounds of it, the wait was worth it.
