"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law"

Wikipedia describes Witchcraft as a Swedish doom metal band, but there's some debate about whether they really are doom metal or better described as stoner or psych metal. To me, this video and the sound of this song are hilariously retro. More like old metal. They've got the post-Summer of Love vibe down exactly, neo-pagan and vaguely threatening. Good god, it's Wishbone Ash! - or at least Wishbone Ash before they left merry England, grew old and turned to playing casinos. But seriously, Witchcraft has a deep, craft-like understanding of its antecedents. Note the retro Orange amps.
