Wykked Wytch/The Ultimate Deception/Goomba Music/2012 CD Review

Wykked Wytch are a band from Florida that plays a very gothic form of symphonic black metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "The Ultimate Deception" which was released by Goomba Music.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown in at times, while the keyboards and prograamming bring a very dark gothic and symphonic feeling to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark sound with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine black metal with death and thrash metal with some dark sounding melodies being thrown in at times with a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars are very technical and melodic sounding guitar solos and leads.

Vocals range from high pitched black metal screams,,deep death metal growls, spoken word parts and a brief use of clean singing, while the lyrics cover dark themes and witchcraft, as for the production it has a very strong, professional and powerful sound to it.

In my opinion Wykked Wytch are a very good sounding symphonic/gothic/black/death metal hybrid and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Birthing The Beast" "Serpents Among Us" "Prayers Of The Decapitated" and "Abolish The Weak". RECOMMENDED BUY.
