Witchery To Re-Release “Restless & Dead,” “Witchburner,” “Dead, Hot And Ready,” & “Symphony For The Devil”

Witchery have announced that they will be re-releasing their first three albums, “Restless & Dead,” “Dead, Hot And Ready,” and “Symphony For The Devil,” and their “Witchburner” EP on March 27. The records have been remastered and will feature reworked artwork by Kristian “Necrolord” Wåhlin, rare photos, and liner notes from the band and others close to them. The group commented:

“Ever miss the years when you used to roam the graveyard at midnight? Do you yearn for the years of the howling and do you think there just aren’t any good storms lately? So do we… Twenty-Two years after we put out our first release, we finally get the chance to bring Restless & Dead and the other three Witchery albums out of the grave and back into the world of the living (and the undead) again. Rejoice and do the W!”

Patrik Jensen Says He Has “Nine Songs Ready” For Witchery’s New Album

During a recent interview with Jake Patton of Metal Wani, Patrik Jensen revealed that he already has “nine songs ready” for Witchery’s new album. He said the following:

“I just got off my other computer — my music-recording computer — and I have nine songs ready for the next album, so the new WITCHERY album [will be released] hopefully this year, but [if not], definitely next year… We’re going to record it again with Daniel Bergstrand, [who] we did the two last albums with, because he really knows how to get a great sound for the band.”

Witchery Premiere “Welcome, Night” Lyric Video

Witchery have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Welcome, Night.” This song is from the band’s new album, “I Am Legion,” which will be released on November 10.

Patrik Jensen commented:

“On ‘I Am Legion’ we have tried a few things that Witchery never has done before. ‘Welcome, Night’, with its odd timing, atypical arrangement and with riffs that are meant to enhance the vocals/lyrics (and not the other way around as per usual) makes the song probably my favorite track on the album. I like how the lyrics turned out too. They might lead you to think about a certain infamous incident in history, but I chose to place it in ‘the year 1855’ to distance the song from that, yet keeping it in the same Victorian setting. I got a question from a journalist if the lyrics somehow were about ‘the Devil’s footprints’ that happened that specific year. They’re not connected, but I can recommend looking up that particular incident. Pretty interesting. Please enjoy the contribution of our two great friends – Nick Barker’s spoken word and Mike Wead’s solo – in the song as well!”
