Florence, Italy-based occult rock mystics PSYCHEDELIC WITCHCRAFT will release their Sound Of The Wind full-length in the US on February 27th via Listenable Records.
Released to critical-acclaim in Europe late last year, Sound Of The Wind was captured at Elfo Recording Studio and mastered by Brian Lucey (Ghost). Forged in 2015 by vocalist Virginia Monti andheavily influenced by the ancient doom and blues teachings of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Jefferson Airplane, and Free as well as of the obscure side of the Italian music scene long ago led by Goblin and Ennio Morricone,PSYCHEDELIC WITCHCRAFT's meticulous meld of blues and classic hard rock with in-depth occult-themed lyrics and imagery is at once vivid and all-consuming.
Sound Of The Wind follows PSYCHEDELIC WITHCRAFT's 2015 Black Magic Man EP (Taxi Driver Records), their 2016 critically-lauded debut full-length The Vision (Soulseller Records) and 2017's Magick Rites And Spells compilation (Soulseller Records), a collection of tracks not included in the debut album.

Champions Team Rock of Sound Of The Wind, "The Florence-based four-piece rise above their peers thanks to the mesmerizing, smokey snarl of Virginia Monti's vocals and the blues/classic hard rock guitar of Jacopo Fallai, adding a sexy, wicked vibe to their occult lyrics. Between the two instrumental bookends, 'Maat' and 'Horizons,' 'Lords Of The War' buries a classic blues riff still sporting ZZ Top's beard hair underneath lithe grooves and witchy rallying cries, the title track is a sultry, intoxicated slumber, and 'Rising On The Edge' is broadcast direct from Highway 666." Distorted Sound writes, "PSYCHEDELIC
WITCHCRAFT have returned on top form with Sound Of The Wind, as they explore the depth of their sound and tap into your mind with each track. It's an album to sit down, cut off the world, and immerse yourself in as they take you on a blues/doom infused journey that really manages to revitalize and give a breath of fresh air into a genre that's otherwise typically bleak... Continuing on this trajectory, we can see PSYCHEDELIC WITCHCRAFT becoming a big thing over the next few years." Uncivil Revolt concurs, "This album is fantastic from front to back...legitimate old school rock, in the modern world."
