Album Stream: Witch Cross – ‘Axe to Grind’

Danish traditional heavy metal band Witch Cross have returned from years of silence with their new LP Axe to Grind. The band, who initially called it quits in the mid 80s, have followed up their 1984 release Fit for Fight with another eleven tracks of metallic melodicism, this time with a lineup that replaces the high-pitched wail of with that of vocalist Kevin Moore among others. Songwriting stays in much of the same vein as Fit for Fight, though production this time around is considerably less raw than their Roadrunner debut. Listen to both releases in full, the latter LP for the first time, below. Also head below for a stream of their discography, All that’s Fit for Fighting, which comes bundled with a DVD.
