WITCHERY Reveal New Single & Lyric Video for “Welcome, Night” off Upcoming Album, “I Am Legion”


NOVEMBER 3, 2017
Swedish blackened thrash metallers’ WITCHERY are launching a new single and lyric video for the track “Welcome, Night”, off their upcoming album, “I Am Legion”, to be released next week on November 10, 2017 via Century Media Records.

WITCHERY guitarist Jensen comment about “Welcome, Night” as follows: “On “I Am Legion” we have tried a few things that Witchery never has done before. “Welcome, Night”, with its odd timing, atypical arrangement and with riffs that are meant to enhance the vocals/lyrics (and not the other way around as per usual) makes the song probably my favorite track on the album. I like how the lyrics turned out too. They might lead you to think about a certain infamous incident in history, but I chose to place it in “the year 1855” to distance the song from that, yet keeping it in the same Victorian setting. I got a question from a journalist if the lyrics somehow were about “the Devil’s footprints” that happened that specific year. They’re not connected, but I can recommend looking up that particular incident. Pretty interesting. Please enjoy the contribution of our two great friends – Nick Barker’s spoken word and Mike Wead’s solo – in the song as well!
