At long last, BEWITCHER welcomes their most diabolical offering to date. Comprising 10 songs of Heavy Speed Metal birthed in the fires of rock ‘n roll, Cursed Be Thy Kingdom is a journey to Hell and back. Don’t let this fool you though, BEWITCHER hasn’t forgotten how to have a good time…
To mark this most joyous and unholy occasion, BEWITCHER has saved the best for last… accompanying Cursed Be Thy Kingdom is the release of the 4th and final single “Electric Phantoms“! The new single is a classic BEWITCHER, through and through. 4 minutes of speed and debauchery, centered around their trademark riffs and pedal to the metal rhythm. Make sure to check out the new video below.
Von Bewitcher (vox & guitars) further states: “Windswept highways, greasy night clubs, the smell of leather, beer and gasoline. In the glorious days when marauding heavy metal bands roam freely across the land, these things aren’t just norms…they’re the law. Take a ride with the ‘Electric Phantoms‘ and find out for yourself what the dirty road life is all about.”
When one finds themselves at the proverbial crossroads – face to face with the Devil himself – who wouldn’t choose the left hand path? Honestly, evil is too enticing, too strong, and Hell has the best music anyway. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, heavy metal mongrels BEWITCHER made their pact with Lucifer years ago, and have been walking the dark path ever since.
Recorded at The Captain’s Quarters in Ventura, California by Armand John Anthony (Night Demon), and mixed by Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Megadeth), Cursed Be Thy Kingdom is a powerhouse, heavy-metal-rock-’n’-roll record forged in the white hot fires of Hell. The front cover was done by Paolo Girardi (Power Trip and many more).
