Review By Darren McIntyre

Burning Witches is a power / heavy metal band from Brugg, Aargau, Switzerland who originally formed in 2015, the band like most have had some changes in personnel but has kept the music the main focus as they continue their domination to take on the world. The girls have given us Burning Witches in 2017, Hexenhammer in 2018, Dance With The Devil in 2020The Witch Of The North in 2021 and bring us their stunning new offering The Dark Tower which was released in May this year. The girls have brought in Courtney Cox to bring the firepower whilst Larissa Ernst goes off to have her baby, tonight the girls stop off in Glasgow @ SWG3 to give us a good old dose of power / heavy rock on this cool Sunday night. As the venue fills up and the tension hits fever pitch the lights dim and the intro music booms through the house PA, the lights go up and hitting the stage come Burning Witches to the delight of the crowd, and the girls launch into the blistering –

Lala is giving it her all tonight as this foot-stomping, power-fisted rock track gets us all warmed up as we let the girls do their thing, the tempo changes direction on several occasions as the twin guitar licks kick in the doors and let us feel the power oozing from the girls. The deep full on bassline is handing us a really cool funk tone that flows effortlessly through this awesome opening track, the beat is a real fierce tone as Laura whips us into a frenzy and raises her fist in the air and wants us to give all we have tonight and boy to we give her what she wants.

The shredding guitar riffs are filling the air as this growling beast bares its teeth and really brings the noise to us tonight, we have awesome basslines dropping full-on meaty grooves that are wrapped in a solid thundering rhythm section that really lets this track cut loose. The rasping growler vocals fill the venue as the place hits boiling point as we stamp our feet and feel the energy oozing from the stage tonight as the twin axe assault is just flowing freely through us tonight.

The shredding guitar is working well as Courtney & Romana bounce off each other and really let this beast do its thing, we get the chanting coming back from the audience as this monster builds and builds with every note that is coming our way. There is a real melodic feel to this Bad Boy as the girls hit top speed and really give it to us with this fantastic track that lets the guitar do the talking as we stamp our feet and throw our fists in the air, we are getting a real treat tonight as the girls bring the groove tonight and let us have it right between the eyes with sizzling rock n roll beast, the place is in top flight tonight as the girls stop for a breath and ask us if we are ok and that we are having a great time to which we reply yes, the girls grab a drink and catch themselves as we roll into –

Lucid Nightmare – The heat goes up a notch or two as this thundering beast comes at us with a furious rhythm section that just brings the noise with ease.

Burning Witches – Finishing off tonight’s fantastic set we get a real snare drum-driven track that comes armed with bass kicks that really let this track come to life.
