All-female Swiss heavy metal group Burning Witches presents the music video for the title track of their upcoming album “Hexenhammer”.
Burning Witches on their new video: “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!” says 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!“
“Hexenhammer” was produced at Little Creek Studio in Switzerland by V.O. Pulver (Destruction, Nervosa, Pänzer) and Destruction frontman Schmier. It comes out November 9th, via Nuclear Blast Records. Music video for the first single titled “Executed” can be seen here.
