Witch Cross

Heavy Agger 2017


Another old-school feature this year is Witch Cross. I saw (and heard) Witch Cross for the first time at last year’s Heavy Agger, and it was a positive surprise. Excellent songs, obvious joy of playing, tons of experience, rock solid performance.

Singer Kevin Moore and his hardy men kick off with ‘Nightflight to Tokyo’, their probably best known song and the opener from the debut album from 1984, “Fit for Fight”, and basically deliver a solid set consisting of songs from the debut and the second album, “Axe to Grind” (2013).

Although the bassist, Little John Field, still can’t control his tongue and has shining eyes, I assume, purely because he’s enjoying the whole thing so much, I’m slightly less moved tonight compared to my first encounter with the Danish/British ensemble last year. A tad less energy in the old bones this time around? Still, rock solid material.

When my old buddy Kenn Jensen asked me if I wanted to contribute to the new site he had created, then called powermetal.dk, I didn't hesitate. My love for metal music was and is great. I wrote my first review during the summer of 2004 (Moonspell's 'Antidote' album). In 2015, I took over the editor-in-chief role.
