Witchcraft - Black Metal

Witchcraft is an interesting talented Swedish doom metal band founded in 2000. Magnus Pelander (formerly of Norrsken) formed Witchcraft in 2000. This was to record a tribute to Pentagram's Bobby Liebling and Roky Erickson. The "No Angel or Demon" single was released in 2002 by Primitive Art Records. That caught the ear of Lee Dorrian's label Rise Above Records. The label quickly signed them. A year later, the band were brought back together with Jonas Arnesén taking the place of original drummer Jens Henriksson, and his brother Mats taking Ola's place on the bass.

Doom metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music that typically uses slower tempos, low-tuned guitars and a much "thicker" or "heavier" sound than other heavy metal genres. Both the music and the lyrics intend to evoke a sense of despair, dread, impending doom, destruction, downfall, grim/terrible fate, ruin, catastrophe or some kind of annihilation.

Witchcraft has announced they will be releasing a new album, Black Metal on May 1, 2020. The band is currently made up of Magnus Pelander on vocals and guitar, Rage Widerberg on drums and Tobias Anger on bass. They released a self-titled debut album In 2004. Label: Nuclear Blast.
