FDJ Awesome album from one of the UK's finest doom/occult bands currently working the circuit. Vocals are a superb mix between the haunting female lead and growled male response/answer. The music is heavy but not crushing and compliments the vocals excellently. Great band, great album.

about

This is Witch Charmers highly anticipated debut album which will take you on a satirical journey to enlightenment.

"The Great Depression is an outstanding album on all levels. Witch Charmer may have the potential to be one of the UK’s leading Occult Rock/Doom/Stoner Metal bands." - The Sludgelord

"‘The Great Depression’ is a thoroughly worthy addition to the library of any fan of stoner doom, with strong hints of the era of psychedelic rock running through the album." - Ave Noctum (8/10)

"Imagine a cross between Jex Toth, Acid King and Alabama Thunderpussy and you’ll begin to grasp the bounds of Witch Charmer’s sound." - The Metal Observer (8/10)

"The riffs are typically huge and captivating; 70’s blues rock riffs made heavy and dirty so that they sound more contemporary than most...
Each song on this release is a hugely enjoyable exemplar of the style and definitely something you should check out if you have even a passing interest in this genre." - WonderBoxMetal

Track Name: Suffer
1. Suffer

Look accross, shell of the witch I was
The curse beaten down
Rape my pride, Lacerate my eyes
Blind hatred heats incestuous misandry

Lord we're sinking in misery

Come in come on, the knife's in bed
Love and leave you to drain
Maim your bride, torn out eyes
Blind hatred and incestuous misandry

Lord im dying sweet misery

Stone heart bitch, I see in you
Fucked up witch, All the things that feed this life of decay
Corrosion, I'll ride in mayhem
Wasted

I’m climbing the walls
Just to get away from you
I’m going outta my mind
The vision of my hands they throttle you

It’s all I want, It’s all I need
It’s what I crave, seeing you suffer

Soul sucker

Suffocating with hate
Just wanna slit your throat while you sleep
Going outta my mind
It’s time to scratch the wounds that make you bleed

It’s all I want, It’s all I need
It’s what I crave, seeing you suffer

Sweet blood moon rise
Sweet blood hell yeah
To watch your heart die

Like the weight of the world on your shoulders
Goes around, goes around, goes around
Feel the weight of the world on your shoulders
It’s up to you to set it free

You'll find death by inertia ain't mine
I wont be lost in the ashes of time
Let out the phoenix to fly
I’ll ride and ride and I’ll ride

Like the weight of the world on your shoulders
Goes around, goes around, goes around
Death dawn be free
Feel the weight of the world on your shoulders
Walk, walk now bleed
It’s up to you to set it free
Death dawn be free
Walk, walk now breath
Death dawn be free
Walk, walk free
Track Name: The Cull
UK8A3
Track Name: A Watching of Wolves
A test for disciples be reborn
Meet the serpents charm
Unlock the viv, I am the wolf
In pain she cries
Heave the thorn from my side
To meet his rising
Father of the slain

I die beneath you

Plagued by the wolf that knows no end
Spins threads of life again
Toward nothing and never she is bound
Behold a hooded man
Wild hunt release the hounds
Horned angels sound fate
He awaits

I die beneath you
I die beneath you
I die beneath you
I die beneath you
Won’t try to meet you
I die beneath you
I die beneath you

And as I wonder through land of cold and ice
For Nostrond, in caress of marble smile
Guided by my spirits inward sight
I’m gone astray, bathed in Luna's light
The light, her eye
Watched by eagle and night
Repentent ways moan into..

The night, she dies, we hide

From foe and fiend and friend and thief
Gathering corpses, lost souls of grief
Tides of trust, honour, lust, slandering whore
Ripped from greed

The night, she dies, we hide

From foe and fiend and friend and thief
Gathering corpses, lost souls of grief
Tides of trust, honour, lust, slandering whore
Ripped from greed

Now I’ve fallen through ice and stormy skies
Far is the world and the church no longer mine
She’s on the road to hell
Creatures cast their spell
She dies beneath you
I lie beneath you
I die beneath you

I lie beneath you
I die beneath you
Track Name: ...to Death (I'll Drink)
I will drink myself to death, because of you
I'll drink myself to death, because of you
You bring me darkness, no light shines upon
You bring me darkness, no life

I will drink myself to death, because of you
I'll drink myself to death, because of you
A shamefull virus, seeps through the walls
You bring malignance, no life

I will drink myself to death, because of you
I'll drink myself to death, because of you
A hollow sickness, rises and falls
With every vengance I rise

I rise, I fall

Blackened days for the lost along the way
Rise and fall, I'll take a beggars life once once more
Back and forth, the cycle goes forever.. more?
One last time, my life was yours and yours was mine
Heavy haze, getting lost in the ancient ways
Bleed my pride, be the angel in my eyes

Be the angel in my eyes

Fade to black, those days are lost no taking back
Annointed one, those priests they lie they got it wrong
Satans child, this witch was sent to satisfy
Be my prize, be the angel in my eyes

Be the angel in my eyes
Track Name: Stare into the Sun
We live in evil light
Waiting for the bodies to burn
We follow evil minds
And we’re waiting for the bodies to burn
We bore the evil child, a knife in her cradle
Now the child, is she ready to burn

Morbid shadows hanging over me
In darkness who am I to be
Trapped inside this enemy of light
My soul is waning out of sight
Can you see me

Black shadows fall

Sinful angel watching over me
She drains my life blood torture me
Standing on this bridge of no return
These wretched thoughts will never burn
Can you heal me

Black shadows fall

Stare into the sun
Darkness comes undone
Stare into the sun
Ascension has begun

Come from the darknest years
and the sorrows of before
When we were praying, praying for the child
The child who'd fallen, fallen from grace
Cradled away, away, I
I had a child, a child fallen,
Fallen then was silenced
Soar angels away to find her where it’s silent

Stare into the sun
Darkness comes undone
Stare into the sun
Ascension has begun
