WITCHERY Launch New Single & Music Video for "Of Blackened Wing", Taken From Upcoming Album, "I Am Legion"
Swedish blackened thrash metallers' WITCHERY are now launching a second single and video for the track, “Of Blackened Wing”, off their upcoming album, “I Am Legion”, due out on November 10, 2017 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.
WITCHERY guitarist Jensen checked in with the following comment about “Of Blackened Wing”: “’Of Blackened Wing’ is a song that perfectly combines both the old and new sounds of WITCHERY. It mixes the thrashing touch of old with the grittiness and rawness of new. It's one of my personal favorites on the "I Am Legion" album and it will definitely be a part of our set for our upcoming live shows."
Check out “Of Blackened Wing” in a video by Martin Hultgren (Gryt Film) streaming here.

The album was also produced and mixed by Daniel Bergstrand at Dugout Studios (Behemoth, In Flames, Meshuggah) and comes packaged in powerful artwork by Andreas Diaz Pettersson.
