In light of the upcoming release date for their 6th album “In His Infernal Majesty’s Service” next week, on November 25th, 2016 via Century Media Records, Swedish blackened Metallers WITCHERY are debuting another new song as digital single today.
Check out the merciless track ‘Oath Breaker’ with background footage by Gryt Film / grytfilm.com as streaming clip here:
WITCHERY’s guitarist and band-leader Jensen commented as follows on ‘Oath Breaker’, the closing track on the new record: “This might be my favorite song of the whole album. Totally relentless in its thrashy-ness, yet beautiful and epic during the choruses. I can’t wait to get to play this song live! Lyrical topic: A fictional story about a secret society that protects is vows of secrecy.”
Previously, the album track ‘Nosferatu’ was launched via a lyric video produced by Cloud Music Typography here: https://youtu.be/ZyyZlSw0yNs or here: http://spoti.fi/2eNyCpN or here: http://smarturl.it/ihimsITUNES
