HELLWITCH, one of the oldest and most legendary extreme metal bands, will enter the studio in March 2008 to begin recording its long-awaited sophomore full-length album. The new CD will feature nine songs and is rumored to be titled "Mythological Lies… Enlightened Paganus".
Open Grave Records will re-release HELLWITCH's classic album "Syzygial Miscreancy" in early 2008 as part of the Open Grave Records Underground Reissues series. It will be completely remastered and feature killer new artwork. There will be a full-color insert as well.
The original "Syzygial Miscreancy" was released in 1990 via Wild Rags Records, and was recorded at legendary Morrisound Studios with veteran producer Scott Burns.
HELLWITCH formed back in 1984 and released several demos and 7" EPs during the second half of the '80s before issuing a highly acclaimed debut album, "Syzygyal Miscreancy", in 1990 and a mini-CD, "Terraasymmetry", in 1992. They recorded a few more demos through the '90s until they finally completed their 2005 recording, "The Epitome of Disgrace", which led to an agreement with Xtreem Music.
