Psychedelic Witchcraft was born by the hands of the ancient gods of Blues and Doom . Living through the imaginary of Occult and Witchcraft, with psychedelic colors and emotions.Inspired by the sounds and the pictures of an almost lost Era. -bandcamp bio
The sweet part about Psychedelic Witchcraft is that its a one woman project. It has a great retro occult rock vibe and to quote a fan from their bandcamp, just think of them as a stoned Fleetwood Mac. Click on through to hear her Black Magic Man ep.

Comprised of two Englishmen, a Canadian and a Hungarian, this powerhouse foursome is bonded together in the name of rock, with one mutual ambition fueling their music and guiding their mission: to make the heavy stuff and play it loud, the way it should be.
Bad Guys play a tongue in cheek style of sludgey hard rock. Listening to the songs you know that these guys know how to have a great time and I bet seeing them live would be quite an experience! Click on through and give Bad Guynaecology a listen.

The Black Wizards are a killer psychedelic blues rock band from Portugal. Oh, and they're female fronted which is always the best combination for some fuzzed out jams.
Born in the digital era The Black Wizards are four analogic musicians that throws dirty blues into the air: no bullshit, no gimmicks, just pure soul, emotion and lots of fuzz. Click on through to grab yourself a copy of their Fuzzadelic ep.
Atlanta's Royal Thunder reemerge with their stunning sophomore LP 'Crooked Doors'. Propelled by the powerfully emotional voice of Mlny Parsonz, Royal Thunder seamlessly blends the great parts of heavy classic rock, 90s grunge and the forward thinking guitar heroics of contemporary metal bands like Mastodon and Baroness to create a sound unmistakably their own. Rarely has a band so naturally tied together 3 generations of hard rock into one triumphantly magnificent album.
Royal Thunder thoroughly impressed me on their previous release and this one 'Crooked Doors
is hitting me the same way. Click on through to listen to the album and as always, if you like it, support it!

Possessor is an occult doom band from London, UK. Mid last year I posted their first album 'Electric Hell' after the first listen I was hooked. I don't know how many times I listened to it. Well, they did it again, 'Stay Dead' is their latest release and I am sure I will play it many many times. One part thrash, one part doom, Possessor has found themselves a winning combination. Click on through and give it a listen/download!
The trio were formed at the end of 2011 by Fredrik Bolzann, leader of the avant garde black metal band Darvulia and former bassist of Malhkebre, who recruited bassist Lo Klav and drummer Niko Lass to help him realise his doom laden dreams. Mining a very similar territory to Witchsorrow, or the first Electric Wizard album, Witchthroat Serpent sound at once refreshingly distinct and instantly familiar. We have a feeling their eerie, heavy-as-balls sound is going to make doom fanatics across the globe very happy indeed…(taken from bandcamp)
Do you like Electric Wizard? Of course you do and so of course you will like this. Click on through and give this album a listen/download.
Serpent is a three piece retro stoner rock outfit from Vänersborg, Sweden. Their bandcamp profile states that if you are a fan of Pentagram, Black Sabbath and the like that you will be a fan of this. Let me just say, even if you are not a fan of the stoner/doom genre, check this out. Its out of this world! Click on through to give it a listen or grab yourself a copy.
