BEWITCHED - Diabolical Desecration Gatefold LP (Aqua Blue Vinyl)
Limited edition in a gatefold jacket. Limited to 250 aqua blue copies.
"Play it loud and blow your fuckin' brains out" is printed on the cd and that's exactly what you should do with this horny old-school black-thrash album. The opener with the cool title "Hard as Steel (Hot as Hell)") starts with a catchy riff that runs through the whole song, the tempo reminds a bit of horse galloping. That makes you want to hear more of it. Also the other songs are in the old school style of the thrash/speed/black metal of the 80s and are convincing all along the line. Although the songs are a bit monotonous in parts, there are always cool riffs and breaks built in, so that you never get bored while listening. Although you've heard all of this somewhere before, the compositions seem to be quite independent and unique, and Bewitched cover almost everything from speed, thrash and black of the eighties.
