Witchsorrow Comments On New Album "God Curse Us"

The UK's Witchsorrow will release a new doom-filled opus, "God Curse Us," on July 3rd, 2012 in North America. The title track from the album can be heard now at this location. Metal Blade Records commented:

"Witchsorrow is a prime example of a band that plays pure, epic, and non-pretentious doom metal straight from the heart. If their self-titled 2010 debut suggested that, God Curse Us confirms it across almost an hour of unsullied doom.

"Recorded over Hallowe'en by Chris Fielding at Wales' ultra-remote Foel Studios (Electric Wizard, Primordial, Hawkwind), God Curse Us is an album that brings the dark spirit of '70s Sabbath forward to 2012. Capturing the dark essence of classic doom: heavy, mournful riffs; oppressive atmosphere, bleak, sinister vocals and full-power metal freakouts, there's no mistaking it for anything else."

"I just want to carry on what Sabbath started," states frontman Necroskull. "I want to keep that old flame alive. I think that's always been what all the great doom bands have strived to do. It's a tremendous honour to add our own colour to the great tapestry of doom metal."

"There isn't any light at all in the album," asserts Necroskull. "It's far too easy for metal to become a parody. We're not the band out high-fiving everyone and pouring shots down your throat. Everything is falling apart, you can almost taste Armageddon - we're the ones peering ahead to the end of the world."
