For being the first American group to be signed to the German psychedelic/stoner rock Elektrohasch Records, All Them Witches sound pretty damn American. The Nashville-based group deals in doomy, heavy-hitting reverb and sludgy guitar work colored by bluesy Southern rock elements and the occasional wild card harmonica cameo. ATW released their debut and second albums in quick succession in 2013, establishing both the band’s wide net of influence–hard rock, the blues, and psychedelia enter into their configuration in about equal measure–and their ability to synthesize many styles into an engaging, headbang-ready sound.
