“Ex-Greenhouse Effect singer/guitarist and stonerrock pioneer Eric "Lando" Hagen has done it again. White Witch Canyon is overloaded low-end, pedal-powered distortion in both riff and solo and Lando waxing prolific on getting high with witches, androids and broke-down starships. It`s no-think heavy rock n` roll that doesn`t pretend to be anything else. It`s cool that the band mention The Beatles (among others) in the `Thanks` section – not just because I happen to think The Beatles were brilliant, but because Lando and band have a subtle, barely discernable way of including catchy choruses into their songs … `Boom Goes The Dynamite`, `Parasitic Stray` and `The Witch` all have this in some fashion. These subtle pop sensibilities in no way interfere with the band`s more adventurous choices to jam and in several cases but most notably in the opening of `Thirty Three And One Third`, knock the living shit out of things.”
“flashback to the first time I heard Welcome to Sky Valley. White Witch Canyon is a gateway band, acting as a sluice for vintage Sabbath and 70s acid rock worship.

“To be honest, I did not have `Get my ass kicked` on my schedule this morning. I figured I`d just sip some coffee and maybe take a nap. But then this bruiser dropped on my lap and the whole fuckin` room started spinning. Forty-something minutes later and I`m covered in sweat and bleeding from the forehead. The awesomely named White Witch Canyon is the spangly new project of singer/guitar wrangler/buzz king Eric Hagen, formerly of stoner rock champs Greenhouse Effect. As such, this is not a huge departure from that band: it`s acid-eating Sab-ra cadabra, full of thick, meaty riffs that sound like wooly mammoths plowing through walls of blood-stained snow, bare-chested, flared denim vox, and lava-lamping superjams that practically beg you to play `em on a Camaro`s blown-out cassette deck. Majestic shit, man. If Monster Magnet have let you down these past few years – and let`s face it, they have – then I encourage to sluice down White Witch Canyon. It’s a fuckin` trip, Jack.
