Witchcraft In-depth Biography

The Swedish retro}-doom}-psych}-folk} band known as Witchcraft} was started in 2000 by vocalist/guitarist Magnus Pelander}, whose original intent was to record a single in tribute to Pentagram}'s Bobby Liebling} and Roky Erickson} -- how often does that happen? Calling on his friend John Hoyles} (guitar) and brothers Ola} (bass) and Jens Henriksson} (drums) to lend a hand, Pelander} did indeed record that single (entitled "No Angel or Demon"}) and released it through small independent Primitive Arts Records} in 2002. Then, encouraged by the results, he continued to compose material for Witchcraft} while his bandmates pursued other interests.

A year would pass before they reconvened as Witchcraft}, and with new drummer Jonas Arnesen} in tow, the quartet began preparing their eponymous debut album for release through Rise Above} the following year. Recorded in a basement studio outfitted exclusively with vintage equipment, the album captured a hauntingly authentic 1970s sound -- steeped not only in the heavy-handed work of Black Sabbath} and Pentagram}, but also in the psych} and folk-rock} elements of obscure acts like Leaf Hound}, Captain Beyond}, and Comus}. And yet, ironically, none of the members of Witchcraft} were even born before 1977, making their loving reconstruction of that decade's music -- underground music at that -- all the more remarkable. ~ Ed Rivadavia, All Music Guide
