Sweden’s WITCHERY have returned from the dead after a two year hiatus to sign a worldwide deal with Century Media Records and deliver their highly-anticipated fourth full-length offering, Don’t Fear The Reaper, which is set for a late March release.
In 2001, the group delivered Symphony For The Devil, their first album staring drummer Martin Axenrot (BLOODBATH, OPETH), which quickly solidified them as one of the genre’s best. Jensen’s touring commitments with THE HAUNTED forced WITCHERY into hibernation for some time, but the band finally recorded their new masterpiece, Don’t Fear The Reaper, at Berno Studios in the Fall of 2004. The album was mixed by Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studios and features the band’s catchiest, yet most savage material to date.
Jensen (guitars) further describes his excitement over their new deal: “Finally, I’ll say it again…finally, WITCHERY has signed a new deal. This time with Century Media. I’m really glad that we will be handled by the same team that has done such a great job for our other bands - THE HAUNTED and ARCH ENEMY. Our new album, Don’t Fear The Reaper, has been recorded, mixed and mastered since October 2004, so it feels really great to be able to say to all the WITCHERY fans I’ve met over the past years that the album will definitely be out early next year! A new website will be up and running soon too, so keep an eye out for that. There will be touring and major festivals appearances coming up next year, as well. See you all out there soon.”
