Burn The Witch

So the Stone Gods EP "Burn The Witch" is now out. It’s a lot like their live performance. The first track, Burn The Witch, is excellent. The rest is just filler. A poor imitation of what the darkness were. I think a lot of the irony is gone and things are far more serious now.

Still this is only four tracks and the band need to find their feet. I hated Black Shuck and Get Your Hands Off My Woman the first time I heard them, but kept on listening as Growing On Me, I Believe In A Thing Called Love and Love IS Only A Feeling are excellent tracks.

I really do like the song Burn The Witch. The first half of the song is all original, but the second half rips off a few Metallica and Megadeth riffs. Still very good. And the idea of singing about burning witches in 2008 is just brilliant.
