“Children of Gods” review by Metalourgio

Epic heavy metal flows in the new album and you can see this from the intro of the album “Overture To Olympus” that could easily adorn an epic series or movie, even a documentary. The album’s flagship is at number eight with wonderful composition and poetic aura. The aggressive “God of War” is coming to put us on the path of tension. Sharp notes, fighting rhythms and high lyrical voice notes. An excellent combination.

“Children of Gods” review by The Forgotten Scroll

That’s what happens if you put your faith to a band; you have a big, kind-of smirky grin on your face, pleased and happy for their success, thinking “I told you so!”

Well, it’s reasonable to think that I cannot know if GRAYWITCH will actually make a success with their new album but they have ALREADY accomplished the main goal of this second work of theirs; “Children of Gods” is a MUCH BETTER album than its predecessor. Thus, I think that the bet is won – and in my opinion, there were so much at stake because GRAYWITCH had to make a lot of changes to improve as a band.

“Rise of the Witch” review by “blastpheme.fr”

It’s always motivating reading great review 🙂

Cheveux au vent, les yeux au ciel : Graywitch – Rise of the Witch
Par Verveneyel
On dirait bien que le fait d’avoir dans son héritage culturel les mythes les plus épiques d’Europe donne aux musiciens de Heavy Metal Grecs des prédispositions pour l’excellence.

Déjà en 2020 je vous parlais du combo Steel Arctus qui envoyait sacrément la barbaque ; aujourd’hui c’est de Graywitch que l’on va faire l’éloge.

L’univers visuel du groupe est sombre, presque shamanique, mais Graywitch n’est pas de cette sorte (fort adorable au demeurant) qui parle de sorcière en se morfondant dans le Metal le plus lourd et lugubre.

Du Heavy Metal de Graywitch se dégage une vraie puissance sauvage, très positive. C’est le genre d’album avec lequel on s’imagine monter le son sur l’autoroute, fenêtres grandes ouvertes. C’est du Heavy avec un son bien moderne, mais qui s’est abreuvé de toutes les bonnes choses, entre Manowar (surtout quand il s’agit de parler de “Metal”, explicitement) et Grave Digger, avec un soupçon de Dragonforce et de Visigoth, un doigt d’Helloween, un murmure de Cirith Ungol, la touche d’Iron Maiden et de Manilla Road qui va bien.

Bref, c’est du bon, ça tape dure avec des riffs aiguisés, des morceaux à fort potentiel scénique, des galopades, une caisse claire chargée en reverb qui claque aux tympans, des harmonies à la tierce que chaque homme de goût sait déguster. Un florilège de recettes qui marchent pour rafraichir le vieux.

C’est le moment ou jamais de renouveler un peu ses classiques !

English Translation

It seems like having some of Europe’s most epic mythos in their cultural heritage gives Greek Heavy Metal musicians a predisposition for excellence.

Already in 2020 I was talking to you about the Steel Arctus combo which sent a hell of a mess; today it is Graywitch that we will praise.

The visual universe of the group is dark, almost shamanic, but Graywitch is not of this kind (very adorable moreover) which speaks of witch while moping in the heaviest and lugubrious Metal.

From the Heavy Metal of Graywitch emerges a real wild power, very positive. It’s the kind of album with which you imagine yourself turning up the sound on the highway, windows wide open. It’s Heavy with a very modern sound, but which has drunk on all the good things, between Manowar (especially when it comes to talking about “Metal”, explicitly) and Grave Digger, with a hint of Dragonforce and of Visigoth, a finger of Helloween, a whisper of Cirith Ungol, the touch of Iron Maiden and Manilla Road that goes well.

In short, it’s good, it hits hard with sharp riffs, songs with strong scenic potential, galloping, a snare loaded with reverb that slams the eardrums, harmonies in thirds that every man of taste knows how to taste. An anthology of recipes that work to refresh the old.

“Rise of the Witch” review by “Rock Da Vinci”

Another great review coming from Rock Da Vinci.

“When Aphrodite became a witch, the night was filled with steel and fire”
Με ατσάλι και φωτιά υποδέχεται το Νησί της Αφροδίτης το Καλοκαίρι , καθώς οι Ελληνοκύπριοι Graywitch είναι μία μπάντα που ξεκίνησε το 2018 και από τότε προσπαθεί να δημιουργήσει τα δικά της κομμάτια με συνοδό την Ογκώδη κιθάρα , τον δυναμισμό των τυμπάνων και τα δυναμικά Old School φωνητικά. Πλέον μέσω της εμβληματικής Sleaszy Rider Records , δίνουν στην δημοσιότητα το πρώτο τους μουσικό έναυσμα και συγκεκριμένα το Debut Full Album τους “Rise Of The Witch” και κάπως έτσι είναι έτοιμοι να τα δώσουν όλα με σύμμαχο τους , το Heavy Metal! Heavy Metal Is The Law και έτσι η Αφροδίτη φοράει Perfecto και κάνει Headbanging σε Heavy Metal ρυθμούς!

“Rise of the Witch” review by “Metal Hammer Greece”

We are so excited to read the review of the greatest Heavy Metal printed magazine in Greece, “Metal Hammer & Heavy Metal” 🙂

Read the review below:

Θεσπέσιο! Μόνο έτσι μπορεί να χαρακτηριστεί το ντεμπούτο των εκ Θεσσαλονίκης ορμώμενων Graywitch, το οποίο ακολουθεί τις επιτυχημένες διδαχές του περήφανου γερμανικού heavy/power (ιδίως Running Wild, Hellowen), χωρίς όμως να κουράζει ή να περνάει αδιάφορο. Αντίθετα, ανεβάζει με ευκολία τη διάθεση προς κατανάλωση άφθονου ζύθου και τα ’80s vibes με τίτλους όπως “Metalhead” και “Heavy Metal Life” καθιστούν ακόμα πιο εμφανώς ειλικρινείς τις προθέσεις τις μπάντας. Και επειδή θα έρθει η ερώτηση του “τι έχει να μας προσφέρει εν έτει 2021;” η απάντηση είναι μία: Διασκέδαση! Μια έννοια που μας υπενθυμίζεται ότι πρέπει να εκτιμούμε και να βιώνουμε περισσότερο. 8 / 10

Reviews

Un véritable album fait par des musiciens passionnés qui nous offrent des chansons de qualité et très inspirées. Encore un groupe à surveiller du coin de l’oeil.

Country: France

They have an excellent new ten track album out now called 'Children of Gods' which clocks in at around fifty minutes long and is the bands sophomore full length release.

Country: United Kingdom

Powerplay Rock and Metal Magazine

There is variety on this Graywitch album. There’s the double bass driven heavy metal of “Odysseus” and the Iron Maiden like gallop on “The One.” Graywitch go for the heavy metal epic with “Over the Red Sky” and the acoustic beginning and end to “Holy Lands” adds depth.

Country: United States

The melodies are a strong point of the album. Everything sounds crystal clear, like how it should be ... This album makes you beg for more! If you are a fan of bands like Helloween and Blind Guardian, and/or a mythology freak, do not miss it!

Rating: 9/10 / Country: Portugal

There are hot axe solos, commanding vocals, orchestral nuances and a general feel of serious metal being played, and with nary a flake of cheese in sight... it’s good to see bands evolve positively and I sense that if they stick to their weapons then Graywitch may find a new fan base and do well on the festival circuit.

Country: United Kingdom

Metal Forces Magazine

Yes, it’s true: GRAYWITCH evolved and expanded in the best way possible, bringing out a classy, compact album, so enjoyable to listen to from start to finish! I dare to say that they can now be counted among the great Hellenic epic metal forces.
