Adding to the excitement around the upcoming second album from Australia’s favorite throwback metal band, WITCHSKULL, boutique New York label STB Records is making a keen and welcome move: they’re re-issuing The Vast Electric Dark, the band’s thunderous old-school metal meets new-school doom debut.
The new edition features the same beautiful cover art as the original, pressed on reddish-black cloudy-haze vinyl and limited to just 250 copies worldwide. STB will have the new edition available just in time for all those finding new metal purpose in the band’s sophomore effort, Coven’s Will.
Witchskull formed in early 2014 when old school friends Marcus De Pasquale (Looking Glass) and Joel Green (Armoured Angel) joined forces with Tony McMahon to create a blues based doom outfit.
More a brotherhood than a band, Witchskull unleash a stripped back, groove driven primal sound that reveals the bones of their rock/metal lineage.
After writing and demoing songs in mid 2014, Witchskull played shows in Canberra and joined the Sydney leg of the Doomsday Festival with Windhand and Beastwars.
