This sophomore release from stoned doom masters Witch consists of catchy, evil anthem after catchy, evil anthem. Heavily distorted killer riffs, ominous high-pitched vocals channeling a young Alice Cooper and faster, shorter, tighter songs conformed to fit J Mascis' punk-grown drumming style make this transient quartet's cauldron-cooked brand of tarnished metal broodingly heavy. Smoldering tracks "Eye" and "Sweet Sue" foreshadow Armageddon as they coalesce in fuzzy walls of sound, while the devastating "Psychotic Rock" encapsulates all you need to know about the psychotic rock of Witch.
