NEW LINE UP FOR TOUR

Dear sinners,

one again we have to announce a line up changing. Nowadays music can’t be a real job, so our former bassist and lead guitarist had to part their ways from ‘witches in February. They’re now officially replaced by two new members:

Joe WISE MAN Dardano at lead guitar and back vocals
Tony FARAWAY Farabella at bass guitar and back vocals

They had their stage baptism during the last Bones Party edition, near Naples.

Joe played a long time in MARSHALL and HEAVENSHINE, two well-known metal bands in Naples. Tony is a young and very talented musician and plays in our friends’ band 3RD.

This two new members, along with Mario and Joey, will play the next gigs at Agglutination Metal Festival, Malta Doom Metal Festival and the upcoming NATURAL BORN SINNERS EUROPEAN tour in October and November.

Circle of Witches is (from left to right)

Joey HELMET Coppola – drums
Joe WISE MAN Dardano – lead guitar and back vocals
Mario HELL Bove – lead vocals and guitar
Tony FARAWAY Farabella – bass and back vocals

TONGUE OF MISERY

Dear sinners,

finally, we released the lyric video of TONGUE OF MISERY, the first single from our upcoming album “Natural Born Sinners“. It’s a blasting song made of heavy metal with a thrashing punch and we chose it as the album’s opening track.

It’s a pamphlet against obscurantism and religions, a rebellion for all free minds and souls. We hope you all join our revolution.

ARTWORK RELEASE

Dear Sinners,

here we are! As announced, this is the Cover Art for our upcoming album NATURAL BORN SINNERS, third full length in our career. It shows an eyeless Lucifer, the first Rebel, the First Sinner, the first to be condemned by god.

We hired for the second time our trustworthy graphic designer Nikos Markogiannakis (ROTTING CHRIST, ANUBIS GATE, DIE SEKTOR), author of the previous Rock the Evil artwork. He built this majestic figure, strong, tormented, dynamic although held down in the flames of Hell by a barbed wire.

We wrote nine new songs following the concept of rebellion dealing with the Fallen Angel or the mage and philosopher Giordano Bruno, from Spartacus to Anton Lavey, until those free spirits cursed and blamed as “witches”.

While we’re looking for a good contract, we are managing promotion strategy and tour in sight of the album’s official release.

Stay tuned for updates!

NON SERVIAM.

Goodbye 2017

Dear Sinners,

we’re going to end up this 2017, our 13th year of heavy metal. This one was a turning point in our life, we overcame some important changes (life itself changes…) and won some struggles.

Finally, we received NATURAL BORN SINNERS final master from our producer. Some things went out of plans such as delays, accidents, misunderstandings, shit… But we didn’t give in, we never stopped our activity because we deeply believe in our music and force.

Uo to now, we got some labels interested in our work. We have some other to get in touch with and soon we’ll be able to deal a contract with the best of them.

Good news even in the live festival scenario. We received a couple of proposals and we’re waiting for the official statement to make you all know what will be our next gigs.

Meanwhile, we wish you all the best for the 2018 and we hope you’ll be still with us on our journey.

YEAR XIII

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.

STILL (a)LIVE!

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!
