Atomic Witch are a band from Cleveland, Ohio that plays a mixture of black, death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2022 album "Crypt Of Sleepless Malice" which will be released in November by Redefining Darkness Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while the riffs also add in a great amount of melody. Vocals are done in more of an aggressive thrash metal style along with some death metal growls also being utilized at times the music also updates the 80's and 90's style for the modern era.
Power metal screams c an also b e heard at times while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style. Element of black metal can also be heard in some of t he faster riffing along with a great amount of blast b eats also being utilized when the music speeds up and all of t he musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also h ear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with one song also introducing classical guitars and synths onto the recording as well as adding in a small amount of groove to the riffs at times. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, death and horror themes.
In my opinion Atomic Witch are a very great sounding mixture of black, death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Psychic Miasma" "Lovre Curse" "Cemetery Mud" and "Crypt of Sleepless Malice". 8 out of 10.
