Will And The Witch

PKMetal "Old West metal" is an awesome idea. There've been several bands and albums taking a stab at this style in recent years. For my taste, which puts melodic death and power metal above black metal, this is the best of that bunch. It compares well to Ensiferum's sporadic ventures into the Western theme. I highly recommend it. If there's a next step down this road for Helsott, I'll hope for even more "twang!" Favorite track: Skin Out.

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    HELSOTT's newest album, “Will and The Witch” - mixed and mastered by J-F Dagenais (Kataklysm, Ex Deo) and featuring artwork by Felipe Machado Franco (Blind Guardian, Rhapsody, Gamma Ray), is a concept record that tells a fictional story about how Billy The Kid became the fastest gunfighter in the wild west. The first taste of music from the new album was recently unleashed with a visualizer video for the title track, which can be viewed at youtu.be/Gok7aEiO1Ys. The band returns to its musical roots on their latest record with heavier thrash overtones and less orchestral work than their prior record, while catching listeners off-guard with new influences befitting of the album's theme. Thrash metal, power metal, and death metal all converge with acoustic campfire segments, Southern banjo and fiddle, and Native American-inspired hand drums and flutes. The end result is a record that is musically ambitious while remaining melodic, thrashy, and true to the underlying sound of HELSOTT.
