|Swedish up and coming and thunderous heavy rock unit WYTCH unveil the third single taken from their debut album ‘Exordium’ out May 21st on Ripple Music. Get compelled by their new lyric video exclusively on Riff Relevant!
WYTCH may be newcomers in the form, yet in the substance all band members reveal a strong pedigree, being formerly part of cult Swedish bands such as Otyg, Spacious Mind or Vintersorg. Darkness-bound, catchy as can be, their debut album ‘Exordium’ hits the bullseye from start to finish, with thick commanding riffs, a razor-sharp rhythm section and Johanna Lundberg’s sultry and fiery vocals wrapping the whole album like a fireball. About new single “You”, the band comments: “The song is about society with all its norms and standards keeping you from being your true self. Everything is fine and dandy, as long as you fit the mould.“
“Exordium is a potent set of tracks that fluidly balances a range of influences. The album slings the heaviest of tones at you, from head-swaying, banging hard rock rhythms to passionately sultry doom modes, then jacks the energy right back up to the riff peaks of proto-metal, all set in stone by the powerhouse tenacity of Johanna’s vocals.” describe Riff Relevant editors. ‘Exordium’ was recorded and produced by Niklas Viklund at Silverhäxan Studios in Skellefteå, and mastered by Ronnie Björnström at The Mixroom, Sundsvall in Sweden. The artwork was designed by WYTCH vocalist Johanna Lundberg. It will be released on May 21st, 2021 through Ripple Music.
