Witch is the Heaviest of Them All? (Top 10 Witch Metal Bands)

Francisco Goya painted the best metal album covers of the 1700s

In keeping with the spirit of the brilliant folk-horror film The VVitch (now playing in theaters), I decided to dig into some of my favorite occult metal bands. Most of these hard rocking vagabonds are doom metallers; some are brutal purveyors of thrash; all incorporate "witch" in their name somehow. More importantly, they blend dark themes of witchcraft, alchemy and the occult perfectly into their music.
