GIORDANO BRUNO LYRIC VIDEO

Dear witchered,

NATURAL BORN SINNERS is going to hit 21st May. We released the second lyric video single, the track dedicated to GIORDANO BRUNO.

Perchance you who pronounce my sentence are in greater fear than I who receive it.…” These were almost the words Giordano Bruno said to the ecclesiastic jury at the end of the process when he was condemned to arson as a heretic.

He was killed by the Catholic Inquisition in 1600 in Rome because he refused to renounce his thoughts and books, claiming the unity of God with Nature. Bruno was a priest, magician, philosopher and a man of literature, one of the brightest mind of the past. The fire wasn’t his requiem but the enlightenment of his words, giving them as a heritage to centuries.

As Circle Of Witches belongs to the same land from South Italy, the band lived in the places who inspired Bruno’s views on Mother Nature, stepped onto the soil he used to walk centuries ago and had the same feelings watching the mountains, the rivers and the skies he saw before. This is a tribute to his strength, freedom, and courage, his fighting against the Church until the end. He was a true revolutionary man.

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.

Mario HELL Bove & Circle of Witches
