After the mind blowing success of Witchcraft’s Legend (2012), mastermind Magnus Pelander outdid himself once again with the band’s 2016 offering Nucleus. Combining what made it’s predecessor the modern classic it quickly became as well as elements of the band’s earlier days makes Nucleus a melancholic, raging, fragile, melodic and at times noisy masterpiece filed somewhere between classic rock, doom and ambient music.

With a renewed line-up (Rage Widerberg on drums and Tobias Anger on bass) the band sounds more hungry and powerful than ever. In combination with the thrilling, yet very down-to-earth production by Pelander, Philip Gabriel Saxin and Anton Sundell, Nucleus throws you in dreamy sonic landscapes that will mesmerize and haunt you alike.
