BURNING WITCHES, founded in 2015, are not just one of the hottest exports from Switzerland.

Well no, the Swiss girls are one of the excising new acts in Old School Heavy Metal in recent years. The band already bewitched the Metal press with their first single ‘Burning Witches’ (2016) and achieved the title „demo of the month“ in German Metal Hammer and Rock Hard. It's not surprising that so much talent led to a spectacular self-titled debut album that was released in 2017, and the Swiss band didn't only receive the attention of the traditional Heavy Metal audience but also from one of the scene heavyweights, Nuclear Blast Records, who quickly signed the band. Laziness or downtime are words nobody involved in BURNING WITCHES knows, so, the next witching masterpiece started brewing in the steel cauldron. The book MALLEUS MALEFICARUM (a.k.a. THE HAMMER OF THE WITCHES, in German: “Hexenhammer”) that legitimated the witch hunting in 1486 became the lyrical centerpiece of the album.The album, also called ‘Hexenhammer’, was again produced by the same team as the debut in the Little Creek Studio helmed by V.O. Pulver (PRO PAIN, DESTRUCTION, NERVOSA, PÄNZER) and DESTRUCTION's legend Schmier, a longtime friend and supporter of the band. It’s classic Metal riffing and Priest-esque screaming vocals also caught the attention of the UK media.Metal Hammer praised their “punchy riffing, enigmatic guitar harmonies and leather-lunged snarls” while Classic Rock remarked that they’d “clearly swallowed every last drop of NWOBHM”.
