Wytch Hazel / PRELUDE In the parallel universe where the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal happened 600 years early, Wytch Hazel are the band of choice for the discerning Plantagenet headbanger. Combining the folk-rock eccentricity of Jethro Tull, the mystical harmony of Wishbone Ash & Thin Lizzy and the exuberance of prime NWOBHM, and immersed in sacred medieval influences via David Munrow's Early Music Consort of London, the Lancastrian hard rockers have happened upon an extremely singular and compelling alchemy on their debut long-player "Prelude." The album was captured, with sumptuous atmospheric results, at the renowned rural retreat at Foel Studio in Wales, and engaging ex-Purson multi-instrumentalist Ed Turner as producer. - "Having that outside perspective has been really good for us," says the band. "Ed's very '60s/'70s-minded in terms of sound, which is what we wanted and needed. When it comes to tone, amps and guitars are really the more important ingredient - old, cranked Marshall amps are where it's at!"
