Dear witchered,

Anthes Aliberti is no longer Circle of Witches guitarist as we parted our ways for personal and artistic reasons. Anthes took this decision in March after reflecting about his role in the band and his music, we discussed a lot and friendly ended our collaboration after almost three years.

We trained some guys and selected one substitute we’re going to officialize on the next week. He (or she!?) will join us for the next AGGLUTINATION Warm Up (12th May) and at he METAL ALLIANCE FEST II.

We wish Anthes all the best for all his new projects, even if not in the metal battlefield.

Stay tuned, ’cause new witch is coming…

Dear witchered,

“NATURAL BORN SINNERS” is almost ready. The mixing phase is done. Our trustworthy designer, Nikos Markogiannakis, is working on the artwork and very soon we’ll reveal it. He said this is a great work and we can’t wait to see what is going to happen.

Soon, some other big news…




Dear witchered,

we stepped out our 13th Spring. Though being older than a dirty dozen of years, we had a new beginning 5 years ago when we decided to focus on a professional path.

Since 2012 we started to tour in Europe,  signed our first deal with a label, worked with a producer for the first time, recorded the second full lenght, toured in Russia as opening band for Doro and Udo, joined some international festival and still we faced the third album chapter.

We’re are at the top of our enthusiasm and we wanna share it with you all. We wanna invite you to join our friend, fan and us during the next Circle of Witches’ gig in Salerno on the 24th March. We’re going to play as main guest of “Metal of the Southern Star“, along with Wildime and Wolfear. We will show you some brand new songs from the upcoming “NATURAL BORN SINNERS”, our latest album produced by ALEX AZZALI and NICHOLAS BARKER.

See you there.

We wanna thank fans form Salerno and neighbour who shouted at us during our last glorious gig in our city. We never saw so many metalheads here in a metal concert and we really appreciated your enthusiasm. HERE you can step into some photos made by Antonio Dereviziis and Denise Caravano

We wanna thank Mumble Rumble for hosting the concert, our friends Pàrados and Shipwrecked who helped us in rising such a thrashing crowd. Maybe not everything went lost in our country…

We also have good news for the upcoming album. Our producer is close to the end of the mixing phase. Stay tuned for updated and be witchered!

Dear Witchered,

we were very busy during this Summer. After coming back from Germany, we received some proposals for shows. We played at three festivals in the Suth of Italy gathering great interest and enthusiasm.

At the very end of Summer, we had a trip to north for nice a stoner festival and had a little accident. Our Ricko bass went into pieces falling out of the car’s top box. Anyway, we had a great show that night.

Are you waiting for our next album? Yeah! Mixing process started and is going on slowly meanwhile our producer is contacting some big labels… We think something is going to happen on the next January or February! Stay tuned for updates!



Dear witchered,

we’re ready to play at METAL FRENZY Festival on June 16th in Gardelegen, Germany, sharing the stage with bands like DECAPITATED and DARK TRANQUILLITY. As we’re going into the metal heart of Europe, we thought about a special gift: FREE SHIPPING COSTS FOR ALL GERMAN people until that date! Just contact us for our official merchandise at commercial [AT] circleofwitches [DOT] com

Meanwhile, the last recording session of our forthcoming album is almost completed. Just fixing the last vocal harmony (and fighting with work and everyday life not related to band…) and the mixing process will start!

Some news will follow… For the moment, SPREAD THE GERMAN WEEK!!

Dear Witchered,

today we celebrate the memory of GIORDANO BRUNO, a XVI century Italian philosopher, mage, mathematician and poet.He was burned at the stake in Rome on February 17th 1600 after being judged as heretic by Roman Catholic Church. As he was considered one of the forerunner of freethinking, we hail to his thought about unity of Nature and his struggle for freedom. That’s whay we dedicated to this exceptional man an intense song in our brand new album.
