The tracks on this album are all equally great, in their own way. The Golden King is probably my fave. Great variety on this album, and Witchwood are more than worthy torchbearers of the classic progrock sound, in the current age. It's wonderful to discover there’s still some souls creating music in the classic rock style I’ve loved since my youth. With shades of Zeppelin, Sabbath, Heep, and Tull all present, you can’t go wrong with this piece of art. 9+/10.
Favorite track: FAREWELL TO THE OCEAN BOULEVARD.
In 2014, from the ashes of the cult band Buttered Bacon Biscuits (BBB), were born the WITCHWOOD. BBB released in 2010 the album "From the solitary woods", distribuited by "Black Widow Records" and positively reviewed by many italian and foreign music magazines and websites (Metal Maniac, Rock Hard, Metal Hammer, Jam, Classix, Rumore, W.S., Rockerilla, Italian Metal, Heavy Impact, Perkele and many others). BBB have played in many gigs around Italy, also supporting important bands like Uriah Heep, Jethro Tull, Bud Spencer Blues Explosion, etc.
They also released in 2013 “A National Acrobat” cover for the Black Sabbath tribute “Hands of Doom” for Mag Music Production. After the split, some members of the band, Ricky, Andy, Steve and Sam, have decided, with the entry of new member Luca Celotti on bass, to start a new project, the WITCHWOOD. All musicians, active for decades, with past recording experience with band like Bad Ambition (Andy), Excrucior and Witche's Brew (Ricky) and collaborations with artists like Martin Grice (Delirium) and Nik Turner (Hawkwind). Debut album "Litanies from the woods" features ten tracks and is a well balanced mix of hard rock, progressive, psych and southern rock with an obscure and vintage 70's attitude.

It's great to find bands that are from the city you live and it's even better when they're a pretty good band, much recommended, it has a 70's/80's kind of feel to it but with that modern polish. Charlie Hodgson
