Soulpreacher – Sonic Witchcraft – Compact Disc

Sonic Witchcraft is an album that plunges into the heavy, doom-laden realms of music, reflective of the band’s style which blends sludge, doom metal, and a hauntingly atmospheric vibe. Released in 2000, this album offers a deep, resonant sound that captures the essence of the doom metal genre while infusing it with the band’s unique artistic sensibilities.

Soulpreacher was formed in 1998 by Michael Avery, Anthony Staton, Mark Schindler, and Robb Hewlett. Their early sound focused primarily on hateful psychedelic doom metal. Mark Schindler parted ways early on, and Brian Watson was added to the lineup taking over on drums.

In 1999, Soulpreacher signed with the now defunct Man’s Ruin Records founded by Frank Kozik, and soon released their debut studio album Sonic Witchcraft. The band went on to release the follow-up album When the Black Sunn Rises…the Holy Men Burn in 2000 on the Colorado label Game Two/Berserker Records.

Following Michael Avery’s departure to law school in 2004, the band added Chris Hill (formally of Gods in Waiting, Sorrow Bequest) and Trent Giardino (formally of Shadowlore). With the addition of the two new guitarists, the band’s sound grew darker, and more melancholic.

The title Sonic Witchcraft aptly conveys the album’s intense and mystical nature. It suggests a concoction of soundscapes that are both dark and enchanting, creating an immersive listening experience that can feel almost ritualistic. The tracks typically feature slow, heavy guitar riffs, powerful drumming, and deeply growled vocals, all common elements in doom metal, yet there’s a distinctively eerie undertone that sets it apart.

Sonic Witchcraft delves into themes of darkness, mysticism, and the human condition, exploring these concepts with a poetic gravity that matches the heavy musical backing. The album is known for its ability to evoke a strong emotional response, enveloping listeners in a thick sonic fog that is as oppressive as it is captivating.

Critically, Sonic Witchcraft was well-received in the doom metal community for its authentic sound and the atmosphere it creates. It appeals to fans who appreciate music that not only embodies the heaviness of metal but also experiments with mood and texture to convey deeper stories and emotions. This album stands as a testament to Soulpreacher’s prowess in crafting music that is both powerful and hauntingly beautiful.
