There can be no argument. This IS metal, or rather, metal as it was supposed to be.

The formula for Seven Witches seems to be fairly simple. Just take equal parts Priest and Maiden, add a dash of other raw NWoBHM and old-school thrash (of the Anthraxian bent), and serve heated over the fires of Hell. At the hands of these technical (but not sterile, no, never sterile) wizards, this recipe will, indeed, satisfy any fan of classic metal.

This is my first exposure to this band (a fact that fills this one with utter shame), even though they've been at it since 1998. That being said, this one will be investigating their back catalog at my earliest convenience.

All in all, I cannot recommend this album enough for anyone who, like me, enjoys the sonic textures of classic metal done right.
