Witches Mark ‘Witching Metal Ritual’ Now Available for Pre-Order


WITCHES MARK the self-professed “Bringers Of Heavy Metal Death” hailing from Austin, Texas have completed work on their “Witching Metal Ritual” full length, due to be released through Heaven and Hell Records on July 15, 2013.

“Witching Metal Ritual” features eight tracks of uncompromising metal glory blending elements of thrash, speed, doom, black, and death while anchoring their overall sound firmly within the framework of traditional heavy metal.

Co-Produced by WITCHES MARK and Stuart “Batlord” Laurence (Agony Column/Ignitor) with mixing and mastering duties handled by Brendon Bigelow (Ignitor/Death Of Millions) “Witching Metal Ritual” features a stunning post-apocalyptic inspired album cover courtesy of Yannick Bouchard of Illusory Dreams.

Metal fans can also expect a number of exciting guest appearances on ‘Witching Metal Ritual” including Ross “The Boss” Friedman (Manowar/Death Dealer/The Dictators) Jack Starr (Virgin Steele/Burning Starr) Jason McMaster (Dangerous Toys/Watchtower/Ignitor/Broken Teeth) and Martin Debourge (Damien Thorne/Head Transfer Process)

The four band members of WITCHES MARK recently commented on their new album WITCHING METAL RITUAL in a string of interviews with the underground metal press.

“When people think of the U.S. they don’t of the traditional metal, they think of Britain, Germany… But the United States had Manowar, they had Virgin Steele, they had Slayer… Tons of bands that really were the best out there and that’s what we wanted to showcase on our album because we are American as well.” bassist Andy Gonzalez stated in an interview with SA Musicians Talk Show Radio.

When asked in an exclusive video interview with Robb’s Metal Works to describe what metal fans can expect to hear on the band’s new album “Witching Metal Ritual” vocalist and guitarist Robb Bockman had the following to say “I’d best describe it as a bunch of dudes that love metal and we just play what we wanna fucking hear. It’s a celebration of metal.”

“Definitely energy, power and attitude…Gotta make a statement, you know?” stated drummer Scott Palmer in an interview with Slayed In Oregon. Guitarist and founding member Robert Williams added “We were able to bring a heavier, meaner, darker sound.”

“Witching Metal Ritual” will be released in Enhanced-CD format and will also include bonus video content including a music video for the album’s title track.

In late 2009, Heaven and Hell Records released “A Grim Apparition” the debut EP from WITCHES MARK
