There are only 5 weeks left until old-school heavy metal newcomers Burning Witches finally unleash their sophomore record titled “Hexenhammer”, via Nuclear Blast Records (November 9). Following on from two trailers that delivered fans insight into the band’s history as well as the new record’s concept & cover artwork, the group is proud to release another musical taster in the form of the music video for “Hexenhammer”.
The band states:
The filming of the “Hexenhammer” video was an exciting new experience for the band. Our second video dives into the story of “Malleus Maleficarum”, written by the discredited Catholic clergyman Heinrich Kramer, to legitimate his cruel deeds against woman in the 15th century. The title track stands for the album, it is melodic and heavy and reflects the sound of the band in a perfect way! We hope you will enjoy the video, which opens up a new authentic chapter for the band! We wanna thank the Witchcraft museum in Gränichen/Switzerland and its founder and director Miss Wicca Meier-Spring and her team for the support on this large project. Also we wanna thank the Operahouse of Zurich for the costumes and the props. Ancient recordings and editing by Michael Buzek – cheers to the whole team for making this amazing venture possible!
