One-Eyed Doll to release “Witches” album

Yes, it seems witches are the new wolves, but it’s ok with us.  Remember when every band had wolf in the name or imagery the last few years?  One-Eyed Doll are getting in on the fun though and so who cares if other bands are doing it. Lots of metal and hard rock is about witches and honestly, witches are the best. Well, werewolf-witch hybrids maybe are the actual best. I’m torn.

One-Eyed Doll join the ranks of metal greats like Crystal Viper, King Diamond (and most recently and with much reverance) Karyn Crisis in documenting the plight of the Witch in history and the modern age.

“This is a “concept” album and is based on historical research of the Salem Witch Hysteria,” reveals One-Eyed Doll’s vocalist, guitarist and visionary Kimberly Freeman. “Many of the lyrics are direct quotes from the original handwritten witch trial court documents. The songs explore different personal accounts from real people and touches on theories about why it happened. It’s meant to be listened to in one sitting, from beginning to end, like a movie.”

“Even though this is probably our heaviest album yet, it was written almost completely on banjo and mandolin in the Redwood Forest near Santa Cruz, CA,” drummer “Junior” Sewell boasts. “It has this great “forest metal” vibe. It was also all written at once with several melodic themes that appear throughout the album.”

We first fell in love with this crazy duo when they opened for OTEP and stole our gothy hearts and Metal Riot recommends you pre-order this jammer HERE.

For a REAL riot out of Austin, check out the new song “Battle On” from One-Eyed Doll. Just forget the weak ass Tyler the Creator riot. In my day we had Guns N Roses fans tearing the stadium out of every seat if Axl Rose didn’t show up. Well…LET THE FACE MELTING COMMENCE!

Whatever Studio Ghibli meets Gladiator movie Kimberly Freeman is singing this punk rock power metal anime anthem for, I want to watch it if not live there every day.  The riffs, energy and vocal brilliance slay all foes!!!! Check the awesome song out HERE!

Interview: OTEP-Raised Fist Atavist

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, August 10, 2011 at 3:50 PM (PST)

Hard rock/metal fusion poet OTEP recently completed the ATAVIST TOUR with fellow hard-chargers Destrophy, Blackguard, One-Eyed Doll and Sister Sin, a package that was one of the finest and loudest overall tours of the summer. The variety of great bands and energy of the shows was killer and were an inspired, great way to celebrate the release of one of Otep Shamaya’s best releases, the very realized in vision and expansive ATAVIST (Victory Records).

Even in an age when more and more people can’t be bothered to feel there are STILL bands that fight to keep heavy music alive and well, sharing a primal sensibility.

Click HERE to read an interview with the always outspoken Otep about ATAVIST as well as quotes from members of Blackguard and Sister Sin on what made the tour so special.

This interview also includes many exclusive live tour pics of ALL THE BANDS!
