Two absolute giants of '70s riff worshipping sound will embark on a tour together in April and May: WITCHCRAFT and ORCHID.

Sweden's Witchcraft were one of the first bands who started to recreate the sound of old heroes like PENTAGRAM around 2000 and who only had one goal in mind: to revive the '70s sound with landmark releases such as Firewood. They returned with Legend in 2012 and proved their status as leaders of a whole subgenre once more!

Orchid from San Francisco are more of a recent phenomenon: the four-piece made quite a bunch of heads turn with their debut EP Through The Devil's Doorway in 2009 before they firmly established themselves with their album Capricorn in 2011. Their second full-length release will be upon us soon.
