Burning Witches Premiere “Hexenhammer” Video

Burning Witches have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Hexenhammer.” That effort will be released on November 9.

The band commented:

“The filming of the ‘Hexenhammer’ video was an exciting new experience for the band. Our second video dives into the story of “Malleus Maleficarum”, written by the discredited Catholic clergyman Heinrich Kramer, to legitimate his cruel deeds against woman in the 15th century. The title track stands for the album, it is melodic and heavy and reflects the sound of the band in a perfect way! We hope you will enjoy the video, which opens up a new authentic chapter for the band!

We wanna thank the Witchcraft museum in Gränichen/Switzerland and its founder and director Miss Wicca Meier-Spring and her team for the support on this large project. Also we wanna thank the Operahouse of Zurich for the costumes and the props. Ancient recordings and editing by Michael Buzek – cheers to the whole team for making this amazing venture possible!“

The artwork was created by Gyula Havancsák, who had the following to say:

“It is not too easy to make a ‘metal’ cover when the main character and focus is an attractive woman. It is much easier to create gory images with monsters or devils for me. But I remembered that my first original cassette was the Warlock ‘Triumph And Agony’ album, so I felt very motivated to incorporate both of those aspects: some black magic and some beautiful ladies. I got some instructions and a sketch from the band — so I painted the witch and the altar first as a main focus and everybody loved the character and the feeling of the image. When I added the ghost images of the girls, it all aligned into a dark magic artwork with beautiful ladies.”

The band added:

“We are very proud to present you our new album cover for ‘Hexenhammer’. The topic is the ‘Malleus Maleficarum’ book that legalized the extermination of the so-called ‘witches’ in the medieval times. The justification of murder against the weak is still a sad subject nowadays. So we wanna pay respect and remember — most of the lyrics are dealing with this dark chapter of our history as well. Of course, we also wanted a classic and mystical metal layout that reflects our music perfectly — so it is a great mix. We hope the fans will enjoy it.”
