Though they're not treading any new ground, Ov Shadows deliver a powerful and horrendous kind of black metal

An essential addition to any prog fan’s streaming list.

This album has plenty to surprise you with.

The Curse’ is a big dense serving of traditional gloom and doom packaged very efficiently.

A very strong black/death metal album, should more than please long-time fans and new listeners alike.

Better and more focused writing would have made this a better, more profound debut album.

Pure auditory chaos

Not really a Witchcraft album, nor a very good one.

Harsh black metal that pulls few punches, but ends up the victim of its own ambition

A decent enough black metal album, one that probably would have done better if it had been released without playing up its alleged inspiration too much.

Some great genre-blurring rock, and a very satisfying show of a band coming into its own on their sophomore release
