Stormwitch - Walpurgis Night

It was 26.06.2003 before the headliner show in the W.O.M. in Balingen, I got in contact with the STORMWITCH guitarist of that time, Fabian Schwarz (thanks to Soltan or Zoltan?). I asked him, when the first three STORMWITCH records will be released on CD and Fabian answered, that the original band sold the rights on them to Gama Records for lifetime. Shit!


But then, Andi Preisig bought these rights from Gama Records and now he releases these STORMWITCH records on CD inclusive some bonus tracks. Let’s praise him for that!!! Hail brother, you’re the man!!! You can say what you want, but the old STORMWITCH records can easily compete with the classics of ACCEPT for example.


Heavy as hell, well-performed, melodic and catchy, ennobled with amazing choruses and as various as IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST on the peak of their career! STORMWITCH don’t have to hide behind the great ones, though only a few recognized that. One of the first songs, I heard from STORMWITCH, was “Cave Of Steenfall” (on HR3’s “Hard’n’Heavy”) and after that, I was a big fan of this band.


Don’t matter which song you take, there’s no filler, not one single weak note. Every true Metal fan must have “Walpurgis Night”!!! (Online February 7, 2005)
