Formed in Canberra in early 2014 by drummer and former member of acclaimed Australian thrash legends Armoured Angel, Joel Green, along with old school friends Marcus De Pasquale (guitar) and bass player Tony McMahon; Witchskullis less a band and more a brotherhood.
Borne out of a love for Dio, Black Sabbath, Motörhead and the NWOBHM movement the triolocked into an almost hermeticgroove from the very beginning. So much so by the Summer of that same year Witchskull were road testing freshly demoed songs at countless shows across Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney. Capable of unleashing raw, balls-to-the-wall doom indebted in no small part to the influence of heavy blues-rock and proto-metal, their unmistakably primal sound marks them out as a stunning live spectacle… a force of nature awakening again and again, night after night.
Following the exclusive STB vinyl-only version of the album which sold out in record time, Ripple Music will give everyone the chance to find out what makes Witchskull so special when The Vast Electric Darkis given an official worldwide release on CD and digital downloadon 23rd September 2016.
