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
