These fucking guys 🤣 Total solid gold - everything is can't miss. But it was the confusingly titled "Face The Tyrant" where they instead spell out their bandname in the ridiculous chorus that sold me on the vinyl purchase. Spinal Tap level awesomeness.
Favorite track: Face The Tyrant.
When i was a kid, back in the early-to-mid 80s, i loved searching for unpopular metal bands. still do: Picture, Mass, Heavy Load, Krokus, early Armored Saint, Scorpions 72-80, Silver Mountain, Barón Rojo, Battleaxe, Luzbel..these guys are distilling the SOUND. there's even a nod to Goblin on track 2. this is HEAVY METAL, not post-whatever. trust me. best part is they DONT need to reach out in english... it rules, and will never die!
Tyrann strikes back with their second full-length knockout! 'Besatt' contains eight hard-hitting heavy metal anthems with everything you've come to expect from this Stockholm powerhouse. If you thought you couldn't get the songs from 'Djävulens Musik' out of your head two years later, these new songs will no doubt get pounded into your skull twice as hard!

This album is amazing.
It infuses that traditional heavy metal style with that sort of power metal lyrics and vocal style too. The guitar work is fantastic and all the solos are smooth and fluid. The vocals tho, are just phenomenal. Would recommend this to any metal fan, old and new. thepimpishere
Absolutely in love with the full length album (check it out too!!) "The Conquest..." I decided to get the demo too. A bit unfair that I discovered the newest first, so this is biased in a way, but the demo definitely sets the solid ground for what is to come next. Wish Century a century of success !!! sachavonkarl74
Allow me to copy Pagan Altar's third album title to describe not only III:Pentecost but the whole discography of Wytch Hazel so far: well, yes, it's Magical and Mythical!!! A must-have for the lovers of 70's hard sound revival. BoneWalker
