Witchcraft's singer/mastermind Magnus Pelander is sometimes considered difficult. He is an artist and a freethinker in the best sense of the word, but he is not very willing to provide information when it comes to his thoughts or his nature. It's just stupid that they're both closely intertwined with his art. "No questions about the past, just the new album. No questions about personality", is the motto in the run-up to interviews, which Mr. Pelander likes to burst from time to time. We are lucky: Pelander is on time, some of his answers are even longer than a sentence. Nevertheless, we remain perplexed rather than enlightened.
eclipsed: Magnus, is this the worst time for you as an artist?
Magnus Pelander: Why?
eclipsed: You give a lot of interviews.
Pelander: (long break) I'm not exactly thrilled about that. (laughs)
WITCHCRAFT - The Outcast (edit) (4:57)
Album: Nucleus (2016)
Label/Distribution: Nuclear Blast/Warner www.nuclearblast.de
The times when you could imprint Witchcraft stamps like Doom or Stoner are over from "Nucleus". The Swedes have created an album that is as stylistically diverse as it is in love with detail. This is retro and modern at the same time. Last month's album is a record to fall in love with!
