If you are looking for a truly unique metal-infused musical experience, look no further. Devil’s Witches‘ discography is something to dive into to escape the “norm” and to even escape reality. The band has a small but powerful discography, with Guns, Drugs and Filthy Pictures now added to the mix. The music created by Devil’s Witches is a blend of doom metal, heavy metal, 70’s psychedelic rock, classic rock, with a few other musical elements and genres sprinkled in. This once solo project, led by a mysterious multi-instrumentalist appropriately called Witchdoctor General, has since welcomed some returning players who all participated in the creation of this two-track EP.

Emile’s singer/songwriter debut The Black Spider/Det Kollektive Selvmord does just that in spades. This is Rainbows in the Dark, featuring the best of all things non-metal and metal-adjacent.
