Witch Reaper are a band from Seattle, Washington that plays a mixture of stoner rock and doom metal along with a touch of death metal influences and this is a review of their self released 2012 ep "_".
The ep starts out with some soft acoustic guitar playing and background synths which also leads to some drums and heavy guitar and bass riffs which also utilize a good amount of melody and after awhile high pitched screams and melodic vocals are thrown into the music which also lead up to stoner rock style guitar leads.
When we get further into the ep the music starts going into a more dark and heavy direction while also utilizing some 70's rock style melodies and mixing them with some dark and heavy guitar riffing and the ep also starts mixing in psychedelic elements to create a sound only they can call their own.
Song lyrics cover fantasy and stoner themes, while the production has a very strong, dark, heavy and powerful sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this ep as well as the last song being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Witch Reaper are a very great sounding mixture of stoner rock and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Space Debris" and "Queen Of the Green". RECOMMENDED BUY.
