Portland, Oregon's Bewitcher have returned with a new recording which continues the black and speed metal mixture of previous releases and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Too Fast For The Flames" which will be released in March by Shadow Kingdom Records.
A very fast speed metal sound starts off the ep before adding in some first wave style black metal vocals. The riffing also shows an influence of early 80's thrash metal while also being very modern at the same time and the riffs also add in a great amount of melody as well as all of the instruments sounding very powerful.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the solos and leads remaining true to an old school style and the close the ep with a cover of W.A.S.P's "Show No Mercy" which also adds in a small amount of clean vocals. The Production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover metal and hedonism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding from Bewitcher and if you are a fan of black and speed metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Too Fast For The Flames". 8 out of 10.
