A DOOM CHARTS Top 10 Record

doomcharts.com/2018/03/07/doom-charts-february-2018/

'FREE THE WITCH sets a ridiculous standard ... In a genre packed with bands that draw on decades-old tone and aesthetic, it takes a mature hand to re-appropriate bygone creativity without sounding forced. Luckily there is a confidence and craft present in Green Lung’s writing that belies their months. If Green Lung can expand the template that has served them so well across these four superb songs then a truly exciting future awaits' The Sludgelord

thesludgelord.blogspot.com/2018/02/review-green-lung-free-witch-ep.html

'I wouldn’t bet that Green Lung are finished growing into themselves, but the work they’ve undertaken in beginning their progression is appreciable both in its effort and outcome. Their debut EP, in other words, kicks a good bit of ass ... FREE THE WITCH helps establish their presence in London’s crowded scene and in the greater heavy underground. A success on every level' The Obelisk

theobelisk.net/obelisk/2018/02/12/green-lung-free-the-witch-ep/

'The really spectacular thing about Green Lung is how joyous their riffs are; there are few bands in the scene writing such active, dazzling guitar parts. Of the band’s two releases to date, FREE THE WITCH displays much tighter songwriting and a more consistent musical aesthetic, but it’s also goddamn fun. A strong offering from a great scene, and with a notable advancement from their previous effort, this is a good indicator of exciting things still to come' The Monolith

'Green Lung know how to get the party started in just the right way, with super catchy riffs and super catchy choruses ... I honestly couldn’t find anything wrong with this' Mammoth Tongue Reviews

mammothtongue.wordpress.com/2018/02/19/green-lung-free-the-witch-ep-review/

'FREE THE WITCH sees Green Lung considerably upping their game and adding to their armoury a deeper, fuller dynamic. If the bands demo "Green Man Rising" whetted your appetite for their brand of classy, fuzz drenched intelligent occult rock then FREE THE WITCH is gonna blow your taste buds to smithereens' Desert Psychlist

stonerking1.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/green-lung-free-witch-ep-review.html

'Green Lung have created an EP worthy of massive accolades. They transmit smouldering guitar pyrotechnics and hypnotic rhythmic paths, all of which is topped off with unique, powerful vocals. Each song is a stellar, standalone composition' Riff Relevant

www.riffrelevant.com/2018/02/23/green-lung-free-the-witch-review-official-video/

'Got to be the greatest surprise of 2018 so far ... Green Lung have smashed it out of the park with FREE THE WITCH' Hour of the Riff

www.mixcloud.com/HOTR/hour-of-the-riff-episode-58/

'A steady cacophony of doom filled music which doesn’t let up over the course of twenty five minutes ... The UK doom scene seems to be solidifying itself again after a few years where it kind of lost its way. A new pack of bands are leading the charge and we can definitely add Green Lung to the ones to watch list. There is enough here to keep the hardened doom listener excited, and the re-listen value is high. A worthy addition to any doom collection' Echoes and Dust

Track Name: Lady Lucifer
You first came to me in a dream
At once I knew you were my queen
You smiled with lips incarnadine
Whispered black magic rites obscene

I knew just who you were
Lady Lucifer
Evil walks here on earth
Lady Lucifer

In the black night you called my name
Your nails caressed my windowpane
Thunder cracked, then came the rain
Woke up bleeding from an open vein

I knew just who you were
Lady Lucifer
Evil walks here on earth
Lady Lucifer

Lucifer!

No!

Ooh, I can’t run, I can’t hide
Cause she’s inside my mind
Ooh, I can’t run, I can’t hide
I feel her by my side

Ooh, I can’t run, I can’t hide
She’s got me hypnotised
Ooh, I can’t run, I can’t hide
In love with Satan’s bride

I knew just who you were
Lady Lucifer
Evil walks here on earth
Lady Lucifer

Ooh, I can’t cry, I can’t yell
Ring out the funeral bell
Ooh, I can’t cry, I can’t yell
I'm stuck under her spell

Ooh, I can’t cry, I can’t yell
It’s time to say farewell
Ooh, I can’t cry, I can’t yell
She’ll send me straight to hell
Track Name: Free the Witch
They say she rode with the Devil
They say she bears his mark
They say she danced in the forest
With a goat long after dark

Ah, they know not what they do
If they burn her they are doomed

Cause she’ll curse them
She’ll hex them
And there’s no way to protect them
Ah, they’ve got to free the witch

She’ll curse them
She’ll plague them
And there’s no way to save them
Ah, they’ve got to free the witch

Free the witch

They say she ruined the harvest
They say she spoiled the crops
They say she’s part of a coven
Meeting in the blasted copse

Ah, they know not what they do
If they burn her they are doomed

Cause she’ll curse them
She’ll hex them
And there’s no way to protect them
Ah, they’ve got to free the witch

She’ll curse them
She’ll plague them
And there’s no way to save them
Ah, they’ve got to free the witch

Free the witch

Malleus Maleficarum
Track Name: Living Fossil
Born before time
Last of my kind
On this doomed earth I was left behind

In the abyss
Never surface
Unless summoned by the slowest riffs

Living fossil
I’m built to last
Living fossil
I'm a blast from the past

Centuries pass
Without a glance
I transcend time in my narcotic trance

I dwell alone
Aphotic zone
Awakened only by the lowest tone

Living fossil
I’m built to last
Living fossil
I'm a blast from the past

I have watched the ages come and go
Never dying, living slow
Nothing I can do to stem time’s flow
Never dying, living slow

Living fossil
Don’t move too fast
Living fossil
I'm a blast from the past

Living fossil
In a void so vast
Living fossil
I'm a blast from the past

Prehistoric pariah
I just get higher and higher

Live slow
Never die
I’ll spend an eternity getting high
Track Name: Older than the Hills
I’ve heard them say
This land is cursed
It’s in the water
It’s in the earth

I’ve heard them say
It haunts this place
Though it has no name
Though it has no face

So they say, so they say
By the watermill
There it lurks, there it lays
Older than the hills

So they say, so they say
When you feel the chill
Run away, run away
It’s older than the hills

I’ve heard them say
It’s in the trees
You can hear it moan
It’s on the breeze

I’ve heard them say
Just let it in
Into your bones
Under your skin

So they say, so they say
By the watermill
There it lurks, there it lays
Older than the hills

So they say, so they say
It cannot be killed
Run away, run away
It’s older than the hills

You try to escape
Ah, you never will
It is here to stay
Older than the hills

It’s been here always
And it lives here still
Ah, it has no name
Older than the hills

Older than the hills
Track Name: When the Axe Comes Down (Bonus Track)
Misty morning dawning
On the scaffold high
Crows are cawing, swarming
Falling from the sky
Final warning
Now the end is nigh
Judgement calling:
Any words before you die?

This is your last day
You cannot be saved
Headed for the grave
What you going to say?

You get down on your knees
You pray to God for mercy
Ah, but he can’t help you now
When the axe comes down

Crowd is roaring, brawling
Crying out for blood
They want it pouring, coursing
In a crimson flood
You are crawling
Rolling in the mud
They are watching
Waiting for the thud

Your face in the dirt
You cannot be heard
Your mouth full of earth
What are your last words?

You look up to the sky
You pray to God before you die
Ah, but he can’t help you now
When the axe comes down

Now you’ve said your final prayer
You walk slowly up the stairs
Now you step onto the stage
You’d better get ready for the blade!

You get down on your knees
You pray to God for mercy
Ah, but he can’t help you now
When the axe comes down

When the… axe
When the axe comes down
