Nordwitch is a combination of "north" and "witch". While creating name for the band members were inspired by the ancient mythology of Scandinavia, North, cold and mysteries.Nordwitch was formed in February 2015. At first it was Ukraine/Hungary project (most musicians were from the Ukraine, but the drummer Donets Stepan was from Hungary). The band immediately started to create music for the album. The main idea for 'Mørk Profeti' was to create a concept album, starting with the lyrics and powerful extreme female vocals, mixed with the brutal, gloomy guitar riffs and strong rhythm section. During the recording sessions the band began to cooperate with the promotion agency Grand Sounds PR (Ukr) and Dark Ritual production (USA). When the band finished recording sessions, there were some line-up changes: new drummer Zhenya joined the band, so the band became exclusively Ukrainian band.There is a pretty dark and interesting legend in Norse mythology about three witches who can control people's fate. Pretty dark and interesting legend. Under this inspiration we created a band name and our first album 'Mørk Profeti' ("Dark Prophets" in English). The idea of this legend was also included in the booklet. Album's art design by Vyacheslav Smeshko, who also worked with such great bands like Rotting Christ, Batushka etc...First live show was in Kiev where the band shared the stage with cult German black metal band Nargaroth. Then Nordwitch shared stage with one more with US band Inquisition.'Mørk Profeti' was released in 2016. Before it was released and till now it receive good reviews from various world's major music portals and magazines. After that Nordwitch signed with Satanath Records (Russia), Spiritual Beast records (Japan) and Qalaqas Black Art Production (for limited cassette release) (Malaysia).


To stand out from this vast Death Metal populace is hard. Real hard. I usually find an endless procession of coequal black-clad Death Metal outfits of all flavors on my promo list. All of those trying to sell the same bland soup all over again. Jockeying for position in a genre that somehow lost a lot of its lustre over time. And then there are those bands that are able to just give you this trifle added spice.NordWitch is one of them. Back in January of this year, the band already got on the RockmusicRaider radar. And a really promising radar blip it was. Only to disappear again for long months, despite the promise that a #metal record should indeed be forthcoming shortly. And by Loki, they took their sweet time delivering the goods. But now their début album Mørk Profeti – signed jointly to Dark Rituals and Satanath Records – will finally hit this very specific fan crowd with a vengeance.NordWitch got into its unholy existence back in early 2015, still being of Ukrainian and Hungarian descent at that time. In the meantime, lineage has changed – I am told – and this is all now pure Ukraine.And let’s talk about line-up for an instance: None of the musicians in the this band are newcomers. All of them already pursued their own projects for a few years and this really shows in the final outcome. Good stuff.Mørk Profeti starts with a good cover already!The devil is in the details – as always. If those details are good, the sum of all parts should be good too. Right? And this seems to play out well for NordWitch. It already shows with the album cover that I particularly like. Created by the Ukrainian artist Vyacheslav Smeshko, the art already talks prophecy in more ways than one. And is completely immersed in Norse Mythology with the three Norns present at the roots of Yggdrasil.Same as the Swiss Stortregn and their particularly juicy 2016 piece of Blackened Death Metal, NordWitch elected to go straight for the target with a short solo intro and then they let loose. A real breather, if compared to the majority of black and other metallers with their somewhat ubiquitous intros.This said, Mørk Profeti (dark prophecies) exudes a self-confidence and aggressive stance that is seldom found in début albums. Of course, there is no self-confidence without musical prowess. And the professionalism shows: Dark, sometimes almost epic riffs, meticulous solos galore and drum work to match every part one-by-one. All of this sprinkled with some tremolo picking here and there throughout the album.The instrumentals are backed up by the deep, dark Death Metal growls of Masha Crematorium. Yes: The band is female fronted. Who would have thought that when listening to the male-sounding growls? By definition her style is not as exuberant as Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), whilst I still can draw some similarities. But finally the unclean vocals fully align to the theme and style.Talking about style!The bands calls their tune Blackened Death Metal. But not so fast. They have a highly melodic content to their Death Metal mix. Not as otherworldly as the style changers of Septicflesh have become, but not as dry-heaving and dusty as Abominator neither, as an example. NordWitch serves the melodic and hard growls just at the right temperature. And make no mistake, no clear voice is present on Mørk Profeti. None, zilch, nada. And this is very good news.Then, they take some of their influence from the Scandinavian Melodeath crowd. Somehow I just feel some folks from Insomnium stalking around the backstage on some of the tracks. And then suddenly, they go Thrash on me, like they just met with Blynd in Cyprus. Just check out No Regret, one of the best, if not THE best track on the record. So, I would call it a thrashy Melodic Blackened Death Metal disc.But whatever their style may be, Mørk Profeti has this #metal quality to be catchy without going cheese on ye. And this not many bands can muster. Also, the absence of fillers is remarkable. But this better be that way on a short 8 track album.So, you will get real #metal?As the prophecy already said in January, NordWitch have created something real sturdy with Mørk Profeti. Their no-nonsense, heavily metallic and slightly Scandinavian melodic set of tracks deliver an astonishing quality to the fan crowd for a début. Together with the subdued, yet energetic growls the album delivers an almost irresistible #metal lure. A band to be watched.
