Witchery releases new single and video for “Witching Hour”

Masters of infernal metal since their inception 25 years ago, Swedish blackened thrash metal pioneers Witchery release their new single and video for the album’s fierce opening track “Witching Hour”. Watch the video, which was directed by Martin Hultgren / Gryt Film AB, with post-production handled by Eduardo Hidalgo / E2h Design Studio & Maciej Pieloch / MPieloch.com, on the link below.

Witchery mastermind and guitarist Jensen states about “Witching Hour”:

“And so, the “Witching Hour” has finally arrived…This, the opening track of the new concept album “Nightside”, kicks off a story of unreal nightmares, demonic possession, inquisitional witches’ trials and then dives into the really dark stuff, haha. First try for us to create a concept album and we are very happy with how it turned out. We worked hard at creating songs that followed the dramaturgy of the story (which was more work than we ever realized, but a challenged we accepted and overcame!). We’re pretty sure that “Popecrusher”, and now ‘Witching Hour’, will pique your interest in hearing the full story of “Nightside”!”
