Review – White Witch Canyon – Self Titled

White Witch Canyon are a hard/stoner rock band from California. There isn’t a whole lot of info about the band to be found. While I’m unable to confirm this, I believe that the band has broken up. That, or they’ve taken an extended hiatus. Their Myspace hasn’t been updated for well over 2 years now and they haven’t joined the ranks on Facebook. Finding their 2008 self titled album has proven to be quite a challenge. To put it in literary terms, this album is Moby Dick and I’m Captain Ahab. Whether I actually get to see said album remains a mystery.

i have heard this album many times over. It is a great one well worth seeking. It’s heavy, bluesy and fuzzed out with some psychedelic elements. The guitars are heavy and crunchy. It grooves with the best of them. The song writing is top notch. The band even made a song about that phrase “Boom Goes the Dynamite” which is a pretty good fucking song and they pull it off nicely.

This is the holy grail of album finds. I know, I’ve been searching for well over a year now without much luck. It’s a great album that should be in every person’s collection..if you can find it. Listen to “The Witch” below and let me know what you think.

      Apparently the band is on hiatus and the album is due to make it out on vinyl in the near future.

  3. Hey Kids! Cornbread here from White Witch Canyon. We are chilling at the moment. Tim and I are are finishing up the SpiralArms CD at the moment and have also formed “BEER DRINKERS AND HELL RAISERS” a ZZ TOP Tribute that is playing throughout Northern Cali. As far as when we’ll be back at it, I would say that at the begining of the year we will look to get together and start working on the follow up. We already have a bundle of tunes in the hopper and they are fuzzy as ever! So be patient my prettys! We’ll have this spaceship up and running in no time! PEACE OUT!
