All Them Witches have built a career out of playing music that cannot be pigeonholed into one specific genre.
Nothing As The Ideal was recorded in Studio 2 at the world famous Abbey Road with the help of long-time mixing engineer Mikey Allred. The history and vibe of that setting laid the groundwork for what was to come. The band's signature psychedelic blues riffs, relentless drums, melodic bass lines and non-linear lyrics are all present. The resulting album is a thought provoking head banger that is the band's most cohesive album to date.
"All Them Witches have always been a seminal band in the synesthetic world of neo-psychedelia, consistently toting with them a tempestuous style of blues bleeding into hard rock, despite their desire to steer clear of any genre conformation.
On their sixth album Nothing As The Ideal, All Them Witches are emanating the likes of Kyuss and Tool as they enhance their inimitable guitar-led sound on their first studio recording as a trio, all the while connecting to a metaphysical realm in their quieter moments.
Enlisting the help of producer Mikey Allred, who helped finesse the primal and meditative Dying Surfer Meets His Maker, after the band locked themselves in a cabin for a few days to jam until they found inspiration, All Them Witches took to the illustrious Abbey Road Studios in order to create their most devastatingly progressive and expansive oeuvre. Nothing As The Ideal stands as a mercurial magnum opus that is as disparate as it is cohesive in fusing together the enchanting storytelling of Lightning at The Door with the unrelenting cerebral assault of ATW." - 9/10 Line Of Best Fit
