Seven Witches - 2002 Xiled To Infinity And One


SEVEN WITCHES - XILED TO INFINITY AND ONE (2002, NOISE RECORDS)
Wade Black - vocals
Jack Frost - guitars
Billy Mez - bass
Brian Craig - drums


Background
Seven Witches began back in 1998, and had released two previous albums until now, but the current lineup and sound has very little to do with Seven Witches past. Taking over on vocals for this album is ex Crimson Glory singer Wade Black. When Crimson Glory slipped back into the shadows, Wade took his time finding a new vocal slot. The constant aspect of Seven Witches has been founder/guitarist Jack Frost. In the past couple of years Frost has played with some Metal heavyweights such as Metalium and Savatage. Thanks to his experiences over those two years Frost accumulated many ideas, which he believes has translated into a better band and a great record. A pretty accurate assessment.

The Songs
The five years in Crimson Glory have refined Wade Black into one of Power Metal's elite vocalists. At the outset of opener 'Metal Tyrant' Black growls, 'We're Taking Back The Metal'. Jack Frost then chimes in with a massive crunching riff and we're off on this metal anthem. It's more balls-to-the-wall riffing and pounding drums on Incubus. 'Salvation' begins with Black singing a cappella, moving into headbanging heaven and a brilliant vocal performance by Black. When the acoustic guitar comes out for the title track you're ready for a ballad, and it seems that way for the first minute until Frost's Jackson guitar thunders in. Another excellent vocal job by Wade Black. The band admit they don't mind drop-tuning every now and then and they've done so on 'Warmth of Winter'. I'm not a fan of today's modern metal, but Seven Witches keep it interesting mainly due to Wade Black's singing, rather than the typical angst driven vocals of todays bands. The guitars are tuned up again and it's back into thumping metal on 'Anger's Door'. Up next is the fantastic track 'Eyes Of An Angel', with Wade's soaring vocals and cool chorus. The riff on 'Pain' has a Zakk Wylde feel to it. I'm completely lost as to the point of 'The Burning', which is just the track 'Incubus' with subtle changes, different lyrics and Jon Oliva doing the vocals. Jon does a great job, but with only 10 tracks on offer give me another song. Seven Witches have been known to dabble in cover versions and their rendition of Grim Reaper's 'See You In Hell' is a monster, seeing out the album in fine metal style.

In Summary
If you're looking for an intense, piledriving metal experience then you shouldn't look past this album - it just pulses power and as the band promised, they have 'Taken Back The Metal'.
