When Burning Witches come together, the world is ablaze! With just a sip of their bewitched brew of heavy metal, the quintet whisks the listener back to the heyday of the hottest and cruelest era in rock history. Inspired by the trademarks of classic 80s heavy metal – like skyscraper guitar solos, bludgeoning, raspy vocals and screams, and fast paced drums – Burning Witches unleash a searing attack once more with their fifth studio album and Napalm Records debut, “The Dark Tower”, out May 5th, 2023. Fasten your broom’s seatbelt for this wild and fiery ride!
Behold! The cauldron bubbles and churns, as the Burning Witches conjure up their spellbinding album, crowned by the title track “The Dark Tower”. Prepare to be entranced as commanding guitar riffs seize your senses, but it’s the potent vocals that truly captivate – especially the mesmerizing chorus that beckons you to join with the coven. Yet, this is but a mere glimpse into the magic that the witches have weaved. Many more freshly brewed incantations are primed and ready to be unleashed upon those brave enough to listen to “The Dark Tower”!
Burning Witches on their single “The Dark Tower”:
“Wow that was quick, right? Album No5 is already done and we are back with the brand-new single ‘The Dark Tower’. The title track of the new record will fit perfectly into our set list with its relentless beat, the truly epic riffs and the striking but melodic vocals!
The theme of Elizabeth Bathory and her infamous ‘blood countess’ reputation was a fantastic inspiration for a breathtaking video clip. We all could relate to the story and its creepy saga and knew from the beginning, it would be a new highlight in the WITCHES history!
Last but not least, we want to thank the fans that supported us here and played the extras, in this very emotional and creepy little ride! Enjoy the clip!”
