Yes this is a different clip indeed! Enjoy a little impression of our home & this heroic new anthem of the new record ‘The Witch of the North’!”

“It was a big dream of us, to finally produce a video clip with an acclaimed company like Grupa 13 and a bit of a bigger budget. The title track of the new album was the perfect song to transpose visually, it is not a typical single, it is more of an epic grower. This way we have visually reflected the song for eternity! We hope you will love it as much as we do!”

So is the cover: Claudio Bergamín’s amazing art is the perfect reflection of the record: icy, mystical, timeless and powerful! Please meet the ‘The Witch Of The North’ and fall in love with our evolution!”

Bergamín also added the following about the artwork:

“The one and only Schmier, from Destruction, reached out to me to ask if I’d be interested in doing the new Burning Witches album cover. Needless to say, I was delighted to jump on board. The band had a very unique concept so it took me a couple of weeks to come up with an idea I was happy with. They wanted a classic-looking illustration; pretty much in the vibe of Ken Kelly and Frank Frazetta. The Forest Witch was inspired by The Ents from ‘Lord Of The Rings’ and Botticelli’s ‘Birth Of Venus’. The girls’ depictions were done in pure comic book style, and working on their faces to make them look as close as possible to the real people was a lot of fun. I wish more bands would ask me for that!”

Burning Witches Premiere “Circle Of Five” Video

Burning Witches have premiered a new video for their new single “Circle Of Five.” This song is the band’s first to feature guitarist Larissa Ernst.

Guitarist Romana Kalkuhl commented:

“Yes we are thirsty for action and are proud to present you this new song, that reflects the band pretty well, freaky, high on gain & a strong unit again! This way we can go through good and bad times together! Larissa shows you here, why she is the right one on the lead axe for us – please give her a warm welcome, she deserves the very best! And now enjoy this new riff-monster ‘Circle of Five’!“

Ernst added:

“Today is the big day for me, yes it’s out! After two productive and amazing days in the studio, here comes the first song and video I recorded with my sisters of Burning Witches. I’m heavily proud to be part of the ‘Circle of Five’ and the whole great metal family that belongs to the WITCHES. Enjoy and stay metal!!!”

Burning Witches Welcome Guitarist Larissa Ernst To The Band

Burning Witches have officially welcomed Larissa Ernst to the band as their new guitarist. She will be replacing Sonia “Anubis” Nusselder, who exited the band earlier this year.

Burning Witches commented:

“Burning Witches welcome new guitar player Larissa to the coven!

As many of you already have assumed, the Swiss shredder Larissa Ex – ANNA LUX, GOMORRA and PATER ILTIS is the chosen one!

The new lead player is an old friend of the coven and has already joined the witches on the “Corona acoustic jam”. They are working in the studio on a new single at this moment, release day for the brand-new track and the video will be September 17th!”

Ernst added:

“Hey Burning Witches Fans all around the world, I am unbelievably excited to join the coven on lead guitar! We all share this great passion for Heavy Metal and an almost lifelong friendship. I follow the girls since the start and I will do my very best, to live up to the expectations as a witch. Let´s continue this journey even stronger together! I’m ready to fight!!”

Guitarist Romana Kalkuhl continued:

“We are very happy to introduce our new witch Larissa! We are a full circle again and it feels really fantastic. Thanks to everyone who applied to play with us, there was so many great girls, it was overwhelming. We went for the girl that is a close friend, an amazing person and a skilled and experienced player. We hope you give her a sensational entree, we know our fans are as excited as we are! We love what we do and want to continue our path now, with regained strength and friendship!”

Burning Witches Part Ways With Guitarist Sonia “Anubis” Nusselder

Burning Witches have parted ways with Sonia “Anubis” Nusselder. This news comes after the guitarist recently joined Crypta.

Burning Witches commented:


Yes, indeed to keep a girl band together is more difficult than we thought. Nobody wanted to sign us as a band, with the argument that woman-bands do not last. Well it seems THAT Curse is real! But we will NOT give up!

Sonia has left us for her new project. We saw this coming and we have to accept it. People change and people move on. We wish her all the best!

For us as a Band this means we have to work harder. We will continue our path and will of course look for a new Witch!

But first of all, this Friday, we will have a LIVE JAM with some amazing girls and friends. More news on Wednesday! Please stay tuned!

We will take our time to search and announce the new lead player, please understand we are as shocked as you are. We will use the Corona-times useful, to choose the right person for our lead guitarist position.

The backbone of the band will remain strong, in friendship and musically. We are already working on new songs and are TOP motivated to return on stage.

We want to thank all the fans for the amazing support and will keep you posted about our future moves! Stay positive! It sounds like a cliché but it was never more meaningful than now: WE ARE READY TO FIGHT!!!”

Guitarist Romana Kalkuhl added:

“Beloved BURNING WITCHES fans, we are certainly sad about the decision of Sonia to leave us, but at the same time I am more encouraged and I look forward with pride to our future shows and the next challenges!

We have an outstanding team together, so you don‘t have to worry, we are gonna give our very best!

Thank you all so much for understanding and trusting us, only the one who is wholeheartedly dedicated to the band is a real WITCH!”

Nusselder also issued her own statement:

“Dear fans,

For personal reasons and with a lot of deliberation, I have decided to fully dedicate myself to CRYPTA and Cobra Spell and to leave BURNING WITCHES.

The last 2,5 years were FULL of amazing and priceless experiences, it made many of my dreams become reality and I always put all my passion and love for music into it. This journey also opened many doors for new challenges that I am overly anxious to pursue. Such as starting my own bands, writing my own music and push that further.

I am extremely thankful for my my dear family, friends and of course all the wonderful fans for the immense support. I deeply thank the band and the management for the fantastic concert/stage moments such as playing at WACKEN, Sweden Rock, Summer Breeze… and the list goes on, traveling the world, being part of 2 fantastic BURNING WITCHES full-length albums that I will for ever look up to.

This is was a very hard decision, but sometimes you can’t pursue a bigger dream, without giving up a meaningful one in return. I will continue my musical path with full passion for music and for the fans! This is just the beginning! ❤️

The debut release of COBRA SPELL (heavy metal) will be released later this year. And the line-up announcement will very soon this coming days. So please, stay tuned! Also, of course stay tuned to further news with CRYPTA (death metal), we just released the line-up!


I wish BURNING WITCHES all the very best of success!

Much love,

Sonia Anubis

Thank you so much everyone for your positive words, it is really an extremely hard time, i’ve never been through something like this. Maybe one of my hardest choices in life. I don’t take this lightly… Just want to make sure, my new bands were not the main reason why I left. Repeating: This side-bands were existent for over a year… Personal reasons and indifferences in the band lead to this decision. And for that, my path really had to take a different direction from their path.”

Burning Witches Premiere “Six Feet Underground” Video

Burning Witches have premiered a new video for their song “Six Feet Underground.” This track is from the band’s new album “Dance With The Devil,” which was released today (March 6). The group commented:

“‘Six Feet Underground’ was the last song we wrote for the new album and it came together just a week before we entered the studio. It’s very melodic and catchy — if you hear it, you can’t help but sing along!”

Burning Witches Premiere “Dance With The Devil” Music Video

Burning Witches have premiered a new video for their new song “Dance With The Devil.” This is the title track of the band’s new album, which will be released on March 6. Romana Kalkuhl commented:

“The title track has this cool 80s vibe, so we had the idea to visualize the Devil artistically in the clip! We have filmed with many of our friends to create an amicable atmosphere and this way we all have something special to remember! If this video is able to entertain you and distract you from daily life for some minutes, the goal is reached, come and dance with us …Dance with the Devil!”
