Glorious retro progrock with all the bells, flutes, organs and whistles you could wish for. Sweet, sweet headnodding tunes for those chill days when you just want a stupid grin on your face. :)

What would be the result of an encounter between Black Sabbath with Led Zeppelin? The answer is clear : Witchwood. How come this band has an old school sound who gives the impression that it was recorded in the late 1960's? This is a question that remains answerless. I really like it, that's the thing I'm absolutely sure of.
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.
