Century Media Records is pleased to announce the signing of Portland’s high priests of black speed, Bewitcher. The band will be entering the studio this summer to record their forthcoming third album. Details to be revealed soon.
“We stand here on the precipice of a brave new world. Everything around us is utter chaos, and it is from this chaos, standing at the proverbial crossroads, that we have forged our most diabolical anthems of Speed Metal Sorcery to date. We look forward to seeing what our new union in conspiracy with CMR will bring,” states Bewitcher about their signing to Century Media Records.
Century Media U.S. A&R, Mike Gitter, adds:
“They’re the bastard sons of Satan amped up on true heavy metal, pure punk fury, rock n’ roll, the occult, speed, fire – and that’s just in one song! The first time you hear them, Bewitcher grabs you with that same ibex-baiting intensity you get from slapping on Venom’s “Welcome To Hell” or Motörhead’s “Iron Fist”. As they say in their anthem “Under The Witching Cross”: ‘Metal heart/Metal soul/Drink from the chalice of rock n roll.’ Need I say more?”
