The Witching Hour

Producer: Carnal Agony
”The Witching Hour” is the perfect example of the foundation which the band builds their music upon and showcases the band’s Unholy Trinity of headbanging rhythms, larger-than-life choruses, and irresistible scary stories to tell in the dark.
With music and lyrics by Mathias Wallin, the track was recorded at Studio Seven Sweden in Örebro by Ronny Milianowicz. “‘The Witching Hour’ is unusual for us with its clear influences from bands like Whitesnake, Heart, or Survivor. They’re a part of my musical DNA as well and it was fun to explore that and try to infuse it with metal”, says Mathias. “And when I got the chorus melody in my head I knew I had something special going on.” Guitarist Pär-Olof Persson agrees: “The moment I heard the song for the first time I decided that we had to record a new album. I can’t wait to play this song live!” Vocalist David Johagen chose a different approach to his vocal delivery on the track. “The lyrics called for a more storytelling feeling than the other tracks. I wanted to convey the curiosity, horror, and ultimately power in the character’s development and I think that you can hear it in my voice. Hopefully, you’ll become afraid, disgusted, and intrigued.” The Witching Hour is upon us!
“The Witching Hour” is available for streaming and digital download at all major digital services from Dec 25th, 2020.
