Deathwitch
Violence Blasphemy Sodomy (Earache)

By: Mike SOS

Usually, when an album is started with a Charles Manson soundbite, it sets a certain tone, and Deathwitch's metallic overtures are no exception. This 14-track release is as ruthless a display of metal as one can imagine, combining incessant double bass drumming with punishing guitars and enough vocal venom spewed to piss just about everyone you can think of off. Not being known for its political correctness, songs like "Worthless Scum" and "Fuck Off And Die" are pretty direct messages to those in Deathwitch's line of fire. While the insults are hurled effortlessly, in a guttural growl no less, these tirades, combined with the old school death metal approach, strike the same angry chords that Slipknot and countless other metal bands employ.
