Birmingham-based doom rockers MARGARITA WITCH CULT unleash their new video for “Diabolical Influence” exclusively on Cvlt Nation! Their awaited self-titled debut album will be released on April 21st through Heavy Psych Sounds.
About the new single, the band comments: “Diabolical Influence is a doom-laden tale of demonic possession and satanic-panic mass hysteria set to crushing heavy 1970s downer rock groove.” Cvlt Nation adds: “This band wants you to drop whatever burdens you’re carrying and some acid, and let their basslines travel down your spine and their riffs reprogram your brain.”

Get ready for an absolute rager with the butt-kicking debut from MARGARITA WITCH CULT! Born from the murky industrial depths of Birmingham, UK (also known as Sabbath City), the raucous trio achieves a tour-de-force by fusing the fist-pumping energy of NWOBHM and occult imagery and heaviness of proto-doom. Disclaimer: you might have the time of your life blasting this timeless and merciless beast, one that will chew you up and spit you out but keep you crawling back for more! A must-have for fans of groovy horror-laden heavy rock’n’roll in the vein of Orange Goblin, Green Lung, Orchid or Uncle Acid.

Debut album “Margarita Witch Cult”
Out April 21st on Heavy Psych Sounds
About the album: A thunderous drum fill propels you into opener ‘Diabolical Influence’ – a lurching behemoth of a tune that makes easy bedfellows of crushing stoner riffs, Latin incantations, and a simply humongous chorus. The pace quickens with the frantic ‘Death Lurks at Every Turn’ – a hair-raising thrasher of breakneck snare rolls and unruly guitar solos. ‘The Witchfinder Comes’ only furthers the sense of foreboding, as tales of torture and pleas for exile fall on the ever-deafening ears of the listener. ‘Be My Witch’ comes in hot and heavy as a grungy ode to the forbidden, and the blistering ‘Annihilation’ concludes side A with speed-freak ferocity.
The more adventurous and immersive side B is kick-started with ‘Theme From Cyclops’ – the deft chops of all 3 members being undeniable as we gallop into the ambitious, face-melting journey that is ‘Lord Of The Flies’-a belting doom groover that culminates in a classic guitar & bass dual to rival even the most virtuosic of axe-wielders. As we near the end of our perilous sonic expedition, ‘Aradia’ serves up an instrumental serving of pure downtuned filth, with sleazy swagger and tasteful shredding that give extra provenance to its author’s deep bag of tricks. The killer blow comes in the shape of the simply savage ‘Sacrifice’ – an unholy exhibition of undeniable force. The duality of the track makes for an experience that leaves our sweet listener reeling- the bludgeoning weight of its monstrous main riff giving way to razor-sharp verses and a tripped-out, mind-bending psych jam- only to come crashing back to crushing reality as the final, fatal notes ring out.
