Witchrist – Curses of Annihilation

ARRRRRRRRGH! Insane! Maniacal! Nuts! Now, there’s a triptych of words for ya to try and describe just what’s in store here. Beautifully and sloppily played, face-ripping, lo-fi Black/Death with an homage to the puke-up-your-guts vocals of Archgoat and the raspiness of Angel Corpse taking turns tossing you into a meat grinder! This lethal dose of dictatorial devastation [&hellip

Tell me, is that not one of the coolest album covers ever? I would even consider getting it as a tattoo, I think it’s that damn awesome! Blood Revolt is the brainchild of A.A. Nemtheanga of Primordial fame on vox along with J. Read and C. Ross, both of Axis of Advance and Revenge, taking up battery and strings. [&hellip
