Wicked Lady - The Axeman Cometh (1968-72 - Hea)vy-psych Proto-Doom: Witchcraft, Pentagram, Black Sabbath)

Wicked Lady - The Axeman Cometh Not a lot of info out there on this band, since it appears they never had a legitimate release back in 1968-72 when this material was originally recorded. It wouldn't be until 1994 that the Kissing Spell label would give these recording the light of day, but now even those releases are difficult to find in any format.

Don't let that stop you from taking the plunge and snagging this proto-doom hard-fuzz monster. If you've ever heard a modern Swedish band called Witchcraft, then you already have something of a primer for 70's basement-doom and minor-chord lyte-psych melodies that are common do both of these bands. Imagining if Sabbath Bloody Sabbath-era Black Sabbath, instead of getting all synthy and fast, went into a bit more Jethro Tull-esque folksy melodic jamming. Weird sounding, I know, but I wouldn't be surprised if both The Wicked Lady and Witchcraft share Pentagram as a common denominator.

The first track "Run The Night" is the most balls-to-the-wall rocking, and the song "The Wicked Lady" sound right out of the aforementioned Witchcraft's catalog. Other songs, like "War Cloud" might wait a full 4 min before the vocals kick in, and "The Axeman Cometh" is a hard-rocking instrumental. Add a healthy does of wah-wah hell into the mix, and you might occasionally come a bit too close to wanky-jamming overkill.

But, not for me. The lost-in-a-void vocals, and acid-hangover guitar total blows most other supposedly "heavy" 70's releases out of the water. Singer-guitarist Martin Weaver, here with drummer "Mad" Dick Smith, and bassist Bob Jeffries, would later join another Kissing Spell discovered treasure band, The Dark. I've never heard that album, so if anyone's got it, let me know.

By the way THIS RECORD SLEEVE IS NOT THE SAME BAND. Don't know who it is but i thought it was funny. I kinda wish it was though.... they're HOT!

  1. Run The Night
  2. War Cloud
  3. The Axeman Cometh
  4. Life and Death
  5. Wicked Lady
  6. Out of the Dark
  7. Rebel
  8. Living on the Edge
Variable Bit Rate, ripped from CD. Didn't do this my self, but got it from a blog a long time ago. It's split in two files, sorry.

residentevil2 - did you try checking out the Simply Saucer post i reuploaded a few weeks ago? Canadian band with a syd barret/velvet undergroud/ wild-weirdness, sound to 'em.

I'm not entirely sure yet on where I stand on Canadian stuff as a whole... haven't checked out to much of the scene.

Never heard of those other bands you mentioned, though. I'll go check them out! Thanks!

Cheers, I just noticed your request for the DARK. Here is the famous album they did "Round the Edges" from 1971-72. I also have 2 other obscure cds from them. I will try to get them uploaded soon. This is the old cd limited to 1000 copies on Kissing Spell. i think some psych label from Taiwan re-issued it a few years ago...not completely sure though. Anyway enjoy!

Hey, the Dark is uploaded from my personal cd. I do not give out other peoples links. I was working on my own site but I am very lazy I just hook people up with cool music when I get a chance. F.Y.I. I run a label called Vomit Noise Productions...hence the name Rob Vomit.

This is certainly a sound that gels with me. For those interested this album and Psychotic Overkill can be streamed for free at Groovershark. Worth checking out!

The rawness of the band reminds me of Budgie, a much underrated band: For those unfamiliar with Budgie try Squawk...not universally acknowleged as their best album....but teh one that does it for me.
