WILD WITCH plays pure and raw heavy metal in the molds of the 80's, with influences of great heavy, speed and hard rock names such as Judas Priest, Saxon, Motorhead, Angel Witch, Accept, Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy, Tokyo Blade and Venom. Only for the real ones!
The band was founded in 2011 by Felipe "Rippervert" (B), Mariano Burich (G), Weiberlan Garcia (D) and Flav Scheidt (V), all who at some moment were mates in the already split-up and predecessor speed/thrash metal group CRUSHER, also founded by Felipe.
As a quartet WILD WITCH recorded and released in independent manner in 2012 "Burning Chains" EP, counting with 3 authorial songs and a version for TOKYO BLADE's "Rock to the Limit". The EP was reissued in 2013 by French label Infërno Records in cassete tape format, earning the group great reviews from publishings from Europa, Asia and South America. Still benefiting from the repercussion, the band was invited to open for names like LEATHER LEONE (USA) and CAULDRON (CAN).
In 2016 WILD WITCH suffers a change in the line-up with the parting of Flav Scheidt during the recordings of the debut full-length. The group then becomes a trio with the decision by bassist Felipe "Rippervert" of taking over the lead vocals role.
With the current line-up, WILD WITCH decides to re-record its whole debut full-length album, which wasn't previously finished. Much more satisfied with the results, WILD WITCH titles it "The Offering", in a move to rescue the dark elements used by 70s music and literature, blending it with the sound of mid 80s heavy metal bands. The result is a visually appealing album with graphics which recall elements of medieval occultism and witchery and corresponding lyrics for some songs. Other tracks present classic heavy metal lyrics influenced by the 80s. All songs are riff-driven, with a lot of energy and feeling, and a strong invitation to headbanging. A perfect summoning for NWOBHM and NWOTHM fans!
