TERROR AND BEAUTY

BRIGHTON FORMED ESBEN AND THE WITCH HAVE BEEN LABELLED EVERYTHING FROM GOTH TO POST ROCK OVER THE YEARS, BUT VOCALIST AND BASSIST RACHEL DAVIES SHEDS SOME LIGHT ON THEIR OWN PERCEPTIONS

ESBEN & THE WITCH

“We were labelled a goth band for years and we were a bit baffled at first. We didn’t grow up with Siouxsie And The Banshees or goth as you know it,” begins Rachel Davies. “I really love gothic architecture and literature though. Musically that is not where our inspirations lay, but we have an interest in the more macabre. The direct inspirations were more visual; John Martin’s ‘Apocalypse’ series, huge canvases representing visions of hell. I was really interested in exploring ideas of destruction, but also moments of total beauty.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

I love reading Album Of The Year features and it’s always fun compiling them – generally because they are often a great reminder of all the great albums that have come out over the last twelve months, as well as providing an opportunity to see how much in agreement we are all in here at Terrorizer HQ when it comes to displaying our own individual musical tastes. I’m sure you’ll read somewhere how 2016 has been a weak year for musical output, I read such articles every year and have done for as long as I can remember, but taste is in the ears of the beholder and frankly I reckon 2016 has provided some quality moments. I write this on the first day of hearing the new Metallica album as well. We didn’t get to hear the album prior to release – it would appear that someone in the band’s Ivory Tower didn’t consider the Terrorizer readers worthy of having a review in this issue. A shame really, and consequently the album hasn’t made our AOTY list. Rest assured that everything else that HAS made the list has been lovingly enjoyed for more than one measly advance stream anyway. We always try and keep things real at Tezza HQ. So who did make the Number One spot? Turn these ‘ere pages to find out! That’s also why you’ll find the mighty Crowbar on our cover. One of the most reliably heavy and honest bands out there – Kirk’s in mighty fine form and it’s a pleasure to have them on our final cover of the year. We hope you enjoy the story behind their new album and why he and Todd are back backing music once again. Here’s to a storming 2017! Adios Darren Sadler
