ACID WITCH – Midnight Movies EP
Shrouded in mystery, this is a Michigan outfit that play a Halloween inspired form of horror-oriented psychedelic metal. Active since 2007, they’ve released two studio albums plus a number of EP’s and split offerings – the latest EP before us now being the 4 song "Midnight Movies". Paying tribute to some of the best movie soundtrack songs in the metal world, we have songs like "I’m Back" from Sorcery, "After Midnight" from Fastway, "Soldiers of the Night" from Black Roses, and "Partytime" from 45 Grave.
Everything from keyboards to narrative elements come into play, bringing me back to when these songs appeared in their original movies. Acid Witch reminds people of the long standing correlation between the horror movie and hard rock/ metal genres, so welcome "Midnight Movies" with open arms if those two loves are something you share as well.
