The Hedvig Mollestad Trio enters the second round. What was still the surprise on the debut album "Shoot", sounds much more determined on the sequel. The power trio around the Norwegian guitarist, who tends towards extreme hardness, has found her vocabulary and exploits it to her heart's content. The textures are even harsher than before, the group cohesion even more hermetic. Soli are reduced to a minimum. The woman celebrates the art of the merciless reef with the Hendrix Blackmore gene. With ease she surfs over the sharpest corners and edges and she gives a damn about getting bloody knees and fingers. The fact that she nevertheless beats her songs out of the speakers with a maximum of female charm makes this Metal Jazz even more appealing than it already is. "All Of Them Witches" is a wonderful, loud nightmare that goes by way too fast.
