Florida death metal veterans HELLWITCH have inked a deal with Listenable Records. The band is finishing up the songwriting for its new album, to be recorded this spring for a late 2019 release.
HELLWITCH's main songwriter and founder Patrick Ranieri comments: "After a decade of strategic planning and musical manipulation... the new HELLWITCH album will bombastically obliterate all those who have survived our previous releases. The album will contain a maelstrom of barbarity spanning from 1985 to present. Crowning tracks such as 'Anthropophagi', 'Delegated Disruption', 'Solipsistic Immortality' and the song 'Hellwitch' will reveal what true, pioneering Florida deathrash really is. Make no mistake, earplugs can't save you! Satan won't save you! Even the bomb shelter beneath your city's center will provide no protection from this monarchical metal mysterium!!! Begin the countdown to cataclysmic ignition!"
Says Listenable: "After all those years, saying we're super proud to be able to work with such an incredible band as Florida's HELLWITCH would be an understatement. This band has been churning out the most vicious and imparable face-melting thrashing death metal riffs since the mid-eighties with exuberant conviction, musicianship and uniqueness."
HELLWITCH formed back in 1984 and released several demos and seven-inch 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 and the release of 2009's "Omnipotent Convocation".
HELLWITCH 2019 is:
