Witchery embodies everything inherent in thrash metal. It's not merely enough to buck the trend, it has to be violated. Rediscovering that magic that Metallica lost more than 20 years ago, but add to it a much needed dose of sheer, unadulterated adrenaline. And when I say adrenaline, I mean a literal needle right to heart resulting in a massive surge of energy. Rapid paced chug riffing and super-smooth lead guitar tone.This Ep mostly rests comfortably in the upper echelons of high octane thrashing, conjuring up images of the insanity that typifies Slayer and Kreator, occasionally tempered with a gallop happy approach more in line with Jon Schaeffer. Mid-tempos before launching into that familiar bombardment of unfettered mayhem. A must have for anyone looking to send his own head flying into a sea of moshing lunatics at the behest of the almighty riff. Be sure to check out the brutal yet faithful "Demolicion" (Los Saicos cover). Get a taste of where these crazed Peruvians Thrashers got to offer !
