Orchid- Sign of the Witch

Sign of the Witch
Release date: 2015Jul18
Label: Nuclear Blast
Rating: 3.5/5

Orchid‘s Mouths of Madness blew my mind. This EP is more than enough to tide one over until their next full-length. “Helicopters” is nothing but fuzz and snare. Trippy. “John The Tiger” and “Sign of the Witch” kneel at the altar of Black Sabbath, whom they are often accused of ripping. You do have to admire their dedication. “Strange Winds” is soft, ominous and evokes the tone of their older EPs. If their next release contains tracks more like the first and last, they will exceed their earlier efforts.

FCC: None
Try: 1,4
