Song Of The Week: “Of Blackened Wing” by WITCHERY

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 7:08 PM (PST)

The newest single from WITCHERY is here. It is taken from I Am Legion,  due out on November 10, 2017 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS. Some dark death march sections pair very well with the faster thrashing moments for a fully on fire listen.

WITCHERY guitarist Jensen checked in with the following comment about “Of Blackened Wing”: “’Of Blackened Wing’ is a song that perfectly combines both the old and new sounds of WITCHERY. It mixes the thrashing touch of old with the grittiness and rawness of new. It’s one of my personal favorites on the “I Am Legion” album and it will definitely be a part of our set for our upcoming live shows.

Check out “Of Blackened Wing” in a video by Martin Hultgren (Gryt Film) streaming below.

Witchery to return with “I Am Legion” album, release new video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, September 1, 2017 at 1:51 PM (PST)

Witchery knocked it out of the park with In His Infernal Majesty’s Service and now seem to have really gotten their devilish groove back after the long half decade gap between Witchkrieg and that album. IHIMS really should have made our staff year end best of list last year but thankfully we were hacked and lost a ton of site content so now you can’t see how we screwed up and didn’t include it. “Nosferatu” jams so gosh dang hard, we really screwed up.

We have another chance! Witchery are back already with a Century Media follow-up and are once again crushing it with the current band roster. The Swedes of charred thrash and gnarled emotional thickets shall drop I Am Legion in early November. Toxine/Legion/Emperor who?!! Angus Norder is turning out to be a real keeper (we hope)! Norder is joined again by Jensen (Guitar), Rickard Rimfält (Lead Guitar), Sharlee D’Angelo (Bass) and Chris Barkensjö (Drums). The album was produced and mixed by Daniel Bergstrand at Dugout Studios (Behemoth, In Flames, Meshuggah) and comes packaged in powerful artwork completed by Andreas Diaz Pettersson (as seen above).

Check out first taste “True North” (not a Bad Religion cover, though that would have been wild) below! Frozen wastes! Snarling! Evil!

Witchery announce new singer Emperor Magus Caligula

Posted by Ehrila on Friday, July 15, 2011 at 2:34 PM (PST)

Century Media posted the following statement: Some of you might be surprised to see a new face at the Hultsfred Festival tonight when Witchery enter the stage to declare Witchkrieg over Sweden.

Patrik Jensen (guitarist, also in The Haunted):

“We are saddened to announce the departure of Legion (ex-Marduk, ex-Devian), singer of last years Witchery ear crusher “Witchkrieg”. Unfortunately, conflicting schedules made a continued collaboration impossible. We are very thankful for Legion’s input and work on our latest album, and we wish him only the very best for the future.”

“Witchery will however not remain without a leader to take them thru the netherworlds and beyond. None other than Emperor Magus Caligula (ex-Dark Funeral) has decided to once again adorn his armor, and go off to battle for the better of darkness and evil.”
