In 2014 from the ashes of the Buttered Bacon Biscuits Witchwood were born. B.B.B. released a self-produced Cd in 2010, entitled "From the solitary woods", and positively reviewed by many italian and foreign music magazines and websites. They played in many gigs around Italy, also supporting important bands like Uriah Heep, Jethro Tull, Bud Spencer Blues Explosion, etc.

After the split, some members of the band, Ricky, Andy, Steve and Sam, have decided, with the entry of new member Luca Celotti on bass, to start Witchwood. All musicians, active for decades, with past recording experience with local bands and collaborations with artists like Martin Grice (Delirium) and Nik Turner (Hawkwind). Debut album "Litanies from the woods" featuring ten tracks is a well balanced mix of hard rock, progressive, psych and southern rock with an obscure and vintage 70's attitude.

Out in 2015 got a very excellent acceptance from public and press, both in and outside Italy, which allowed a strong promotional-push (playing live at Hammer of Doom in Germany, Malta Doom Metal Fest in Malta and as guest for The Vintage Caravan in Germany) and a deserved good visibility on all main specialized webzines and magazines; both Cd and Lp first runs went quickly sold out. Rightly Witchwood were considered one of the best bands from the new "retro-rock" wave.

One year later the acclaimed debut, Italian 70's hard rockers Witchwood came back with a new recording, featuring 3 unreleased songs, 2 covers - "Flaming Telepath" from Blue Öyster Cult and "Rainbow Demon" from Uriah Heep - a kind of homage and tribute to these two great bands, so important for Witchwood's musical journey, and an unreleased version of the suite "Handful Of Stars" (from "Litanies From The Woods") with a new breathless intro, for a total of 45 minutes of music.

Last 4 years the band played live and collected all the energies and inspirations to release the new, best possible, album entitled "Before the Winter". A long time, but worths the wait!
