Witchery news!

WITCHERY’s line-up reads like the who’s who of Swedish Metal: Jensen plays with The Haunted; solo-guitarist Rickard Rimfält rocks for Séance; bass player Sharlee D’Angelo is in charge of the deep end of Arch Enemy and Spiritual Beggars; while drummer Martin Axe hits the skins of Opeth and Bloodbath. The upcoming album “Witchkrieg” further offers the debut of new vocalist Legion (ex-Marduk, ex-Devian) and an army of the best metal guitarists. The fretboard wizardry of Kerry King crowns “Witchkrieg”, the opener and title-song of the brand new album by all-star-quintet Witchery. Hank Sherman (Mercyful Fate, Force Of Evil) was already guesting on three former discs by Witchery. Also on board is Andy La Rocque (King Diamond).The new track “The Reaver” features Gary Holt and Lee Altus of Exodus. Last but not least Jim Durkin of Dark Angel fame also contributed a guest solo.

WITCHERY’s spell was first cast upon our earthly existence when four members splintered off Satanic Slaughter in 1997: Jensen (later with The Haunted), Richard Corpse, Toxine and Mique. Before recording their debut-album “Restless And Dead”, Jensen met Sharlee D’Angelo (also of Arch Enemy and Mercyful Fate fame, among others) and got him on board for the unholy alliance. The album was released in 1998 and was very well received, so WITCHERY recorded the “Witchburner” mini-album later during the same year. Now they follow up in 2010 with “Witchkreig”, mixed and mastered at Antfarm studios by Tue Madsen (Dark Tranquillity, The Haunted). The heroic cover artwork was created by Andreas “Diaz” Pettersson.

Jensen is playing with The Haunted on their forthcoming tour.
