Barely twelve full moons after the release of their third opus, “Dance With The Devil," Burning Witches return steeled and superior with "The Witch Of The North," their most fiery and thunderous work to date. An album equipped to become a modern metal classic. It’s obvious: anyone who manages to deliver such a Witch Hammer after just one year has to have the magic touch. Black magic that is!

Few bands in recent memory have established themselves as quickly as BURNING WITCHES, and few are able to write such timeless, grand tunes with ease; carrying Judas Priest in their hearts without becoming overly nostalgic, whilst rapidly developing their own unique voice. “We’re not really into bigger experiments,” confesses guitarist and main songwriter Romana. “We’re all burning for classic metal like Maiden, Priest and Slayer. For me nothing’s better than this kind of music, so Burning Witches will always stay true to themselves."

Now, the Witches opened a particularly gripping page in their grimoire: an album forged in the fires of a pandemic, created with patience, finesse and pitch-black lifeblood during a time in which even the Swiss coven had to retreat into the isolation and quietness of the dark woods. Right there they hatched new spells and new ways of weaving their potent magic into the world. For Freya, for the druidesses, for the witches as past, present and future.

Several recording sessions with Swiss metal legend V.O. Pulver and their producer, thrash titan Schmier (Destruction), at the end of 2020, enabled this foremost incarnation of the band to take their explosive heavy metal to new heights. With "Circle Of Five," "We Stand As One" or the title track there’s an ample amount of rousing, blistering hymns; but for BURNING WITCHES – and you can call that old fashioned if you like – it’s the album that counts, from its intro up to the concluding cover song.

Speaking of cover songs: after "Holy Diver" and "Battle Hymn" this time sees "Hall Of The Mountain King" by the mighty Savatage – including guest solos by Chris Caffery – what a choice, what a rendition!

"The Witch Of The North" is a more solidified and intense record. We’re looking at five pure musicians that have sought and finally found each other.

This coven can’t be stopped by prejudice, nor by stakes, nor diatribes. The era of the Witches has begun. And anyone who won’t join this black magic circle will regret it for all eternity.
