The successor of 2012’s globally extremely successful album, »Legend«, will be entitled “Nucleus” and is said to be mixing the rawer side of WITCHCRAFT‘s early roots with a slightly more melancholic modern sound.
With an all new line-up (Rage Widerberg on drums and Tobias Anger on bass) the band sounds more hungry and powerful than ever before. In combination with the thrilling, yet very down-to-earth production by Pelander himself, Philip Gabriel Saxin and Anton Sundell it just throws you in dreamy sonic landscapes that will mesmerize and haunt you alike.
