In a place where there once stood Crystal streams and emerald woods Now only mounds of burning rock and smoking ground Salted flats where nothing grows for 1000 miles around Visions of terror enter your mind Trumpets and drums sound in the distance Drawing closer, growing louder, then deafening The hungry hordes are approaching No one can help you, no one can save you Calling upon you His voice echoes from the void Losing yourself, losing your mind (1st) Cross the gates to the (2nd) Fever dreams in the (3rd) Dreams of death in the Savage Lands of Satan Wasteland, desert hellscape Devoid of life, devoid of soul Polluted air that stings the eyes Sulphered nostrils, searing lungs Fight but you will fall Your future erased from existence
Hexenkrieg 03:27
Scryer! Diviner! Gaze into the flame Secrets most dire, carried out in Satan’s name Oracle awakens from her sleep, amidst the glow of moonlight beams Through the glare of fiery eyes, impending doom is riding high Oh, now this is war! The end is closing in And on this night, we will fight Grief and sorrow, watching as your cities burn Daybreak, too late Past the point of no return (1st & 3rd) Deep in the smoking cauldron/ (2nd) Smoke rises from the cauldron Cursed embers burning hot Strike your heart with deadly speed Witches dancing in the streets Souls that never rest in peace (1st & 2nd) A dose of black magic (3rd) A dose of metal Is what I need Night of the Hexenkrieg! Footsteps behind you, shadows in your sights Reaper calling, summoning electric light Wolf is howling, and you go insane Baptized in blood and pain Malevolent magic in the air Bringing to life your worst nightmares Witching hour turning into the witch’s night Danger, strangers scratching at your door Hellish terror, darkest art And your world falls apart Haunted by tormented screams, praying that it’s all a dream
Sparkling sky, lightning strikes A misty, dark and rainy night Legions descend with studs and spikes, Drawn towards the neon lights Denim and leather shining black, Maniacal forces on the attack Devastation, a megaton blast Concussion hits so very fast Fly! Higher! And spread the curse like wildfire Come Hell! Come water! The flames of the cult only get hotter Bullet belts and chains, only chaos remains In the smoldering afterglow Metal heart, metal soul Drink from the chalice of Rock n’ Roll We wait for the sign Under the witching cross We live for the night Under the witching cross (2nd) Under the witching cross We worship the moon Under the witching cross, oh! Armies of apocalypse Assembled on the moon’s eclipse Dim lit room the fog rolls in, The candle’s fire licks your skin Tonight’s the night give up your soul All for Satan’s wicked goal Living hard and living free Gods of metal smile unto thee And above the smoking ashes The ancient sky did ignite For the light of it’s eye was so great That it blinded the very face of God
Warrior, sorceress, solitary witch Armored in fur, bones and leather Dark priestess with cinders on your tongue Brought to power when you were so young Into initiation, a child of damnation Morning sun shines into the canyon Blade of the athame reflects the light Talisman upon the breast, an invocation And a cocktail of wormwood, oil and wine And so begins the rite... Heathen woman come cast your spell on me Obsessed by you, possessed by you Trapped in your pentagram, your wish is my command Oh baby, we’re gonna burn! (2nd) Heathen woman come lay your hands on me You are the object of death and doom Black robes and candlelight Invoking lunar rites, standing at the edge of the world Bathed in blood, pagan queen The glow of burning churches in your eyes Messenger of Lucifer, envoy of the devil I am in your icy grip now For mighty is your kingdom, and mighty is your hand Empress, mystic mistress risen from the depths Demons calling your name No confession, inquisition can’t take you down No masters, no gods, You reign supreme and eternal
Don’t want to live forever Don’t care if I get to heaven The twilight of the gods is nigh Running wild in the street I’m turning up the heat And getting dizzy from the high Try like hell to chase me (1st & 3rd) But you will never catch me/ (2nd) But not even hell can catch me A black flame in the dead of night To set the world alight Too Fast Too fast for the Flames! Burning leather on my skin, I’ve got a license to sin And I'm walking the road to damnation Inverted cross held high, never afraid to die Forever hard, forever hungry
Eschaton! From high on the hill we chant for the end Ars magna nigredo Magic and mayhem from fire ascend Blacken the sun and moon! Light bringer, flame bearer Knowledge from beyond the veil Damnation, no salvation, 1000 days of chaos Anti-Christos shall rise From the soil and the sea, to the heavens bring down the sky He is ageless, formless No birth, no death, no resurrection Bathed in most sacred blood! We were born in the sign of the goat We are the moonlight children Worshiping at the temple of the serpent Seeking the god within In the sign of the goat (In the sign of the goat!) In the sign of the goat On black wings we soar Fallen one, hail to fire waters to blood World to ruin, no rapture, messiah never comes Five-pointed burning star Goat of lust, stabbing the heavens with his horns Elemental transformation Earth, air, fire, water and blood Son of the morning rise As one, a monolith Stray forever from the flock He is rebel, dark angel, iconoclastic to the death Anti-kosmos immortalis! Cast yourself into the fire!
Pagan kings who rule as gods Conjurers of mystic might Conspiracy, insanity Raiding the temples The city bleeds Rome is on fire (1st) Cult of the cross, crushed beneath the iron fist (2nd & 3rd) Engraved in stone the deadly sign of the iron fist...666 To the lions! To the lions! From gold cups you drink deeply Perversion, cruelty Long shall your names be known Plunder of the conquered lavished unto thee Crucified and burned alive To serve as living torches in the night So, all now hear the new decree Let them hate me So long as they fear me AVE, AVE, CALIGULA AVE, AVE, NERO

BEWITCHER, in conspiracy with SHADOW KINGDOM RECORDS is pleased to announce the long-awaited follow-up to their self-titled debut album. The time has come to finally unveil the band’s sophomore effort, entitled UNDER THE WITCHING CROSS.

The album was engineered at The Captain’s Quarters studio in Ventura, CA by Night Demon axeman Armand John Anthony with mix/master duties once again falling to Joel Grind. Their combined efforts give the production a sound not yet heard on a Bewitcher record; ominous and layered without sacrificing any of the viciousness of its predecessor.

With stunning cover art from the incomparable Polish painter Mariusz Lewandowski, UNDER THE WITCHING CROSS is a clear statement of the band’s expanding musical and artistic aspirations. Don’t be fooled however, the content within is pure Satanic Speed Metal savagery that Bewitcher delivers with deadly force.

UNDER THE WITCHING CROSS will be released worldwide on May 10, with pre-orders available for physical and digital formats through SKR and the band’s official merch channels. Visit bewitcher.us for more info, as well as upcoming tour dates.

Limited Edition LP released by Shadow Kingdom Records on 200 Black, 200 Blue/Silver/Black Splatter (Band Exclusive), and 600 Transparent Blue with Orange Smoke.
