Swedish blackened thrash metallers Witchery are launching a new single and lyric video for the track "Welcome. Night", off their upcoming album I Am Legion, to be released next week on November 10th, 2017 via Century Media Records.
Witchery guitarist Jensen comments: "On I Am Legion we have tried a few things that Witchery never has done before. "Welcome, Night", with its odd timing, atypical arrangement and with riffs that are meant to enhance the vocals/lyrics (and not the other way around as per usual) makes the song probably my favorite track on the album. I like how the lyrics turned out too. They might lead you to think about a certain infamous incident in history, but I chose to place it in "the year 1855" to distance the song from that, yet keeping it in the same Victorian setting. I got a question from a journalist if the lyrics somehow were about "the Devil's footprints" that happened that specific year. They're not connected, but I can recommend looking up that particular incident. Pretty interesting. Please enjoy the contribution of our two great friends - Nick Barker's spoken word and Mike Wead's solo - in the song as well!"
