Alright fine. Brazilian five-piece Son of a Witch are set to release their 2019 album, Commanded by Cosmic Forces - see? get it? - through respected purveyor Kozmik Artifactz at the end of this month. As to why, it's pretty easy to understand once you dig into the tectonic tonality and post-grunge melodies of the 13-minute "Breathe Dust" - like Jerry Cantrell fronting Conan, that one. That is one of several extended, cosmically dense plods on the record, and if you can manage to play it on your turntable without the speakers vibrating the needle out of its groove, I sincerely doubt you?ll regret it. At least I know I'm not. It's the band's second record behind 2016's Thrones in the Sky." (THEOBELISK.NET) Recommended if you like: Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Elder!
