(Portland, OR – December 17, 2020) – Portland heavy metal mongrels BEWITCHER announce their upcoming Century Media Records debut and 3rd studio album Cursed Be Thy Kingdom out April 16th, 2021. Today, the band has also unveiled the cover art for the new full-length album, which was done by Paolo Girardi (Power Trip and many more).
BEWITCHER vocalist and guitarist M. von Bewitcher states, “We summoned the mighty Paolo Girardi to deliver us a cover that visually depicted a few of the lyrical themes within the album. It has a Renaissance-era vibe to it, but it also incorporates some nods to the band’s past. It’s filled with all kinds of omens, harbingers, and all that cool dark, evil looking shit that is a necessity in any heavy metal album cover of merit! Get your dose of black magic on April 16th, when ‘Cursed Be Thy Kingdom’ is finally turned loose upon the world”.
Recorded at The Captain’s Quarters in Ventura, California by Armand John Anthony (Night Demon), and mixed by Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Megadeth), Cursed Be Thy Kingdom is a powerhouse, heavy-metal-rock-‘n’-roll record forged in the white hot fires of Hell.
Rock ‘n’ roll is the Devil’s music, and BEWITCHER’s Cursed Be Thy Kingdom invites you to join them at the crossroads, drink from the chalice of rock ‘n’ roll, then ritualistically sell your soul to the dark lord himself. M. von Bewitcher puts it best, “The Devil is always ready to make the deal…”.
BEWITCHER is M. von Bewitcher (vocals, guitars), A. Magus (bass guitar, backing vocals), and A. Hunter (drums, percussion).
