Portland metal outfit Bewitcher have announced their new album, Cursed Be Thy Kingdom, will be released on April 16th via Century Media Records. The follow-up to 2019’s Under the Witching Cross marks the group’s debut with Century Media and overall third full-length effort. The album was recorded at The Captain’s Quarters in Ventura, CA by Armand John Anthony (Night Demon), and mixed by Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Megadeth).
Vocalist and guitarist M. von Bewitcher explains:
“We summoned the mighty Paolo Girardi to deliver us a cover that visually depicted a few of the lyrical themes within the album. It has a Renaissance-era vibe to it, but it also incorporates some nods to the band’s past. It’s filled with all kinds of omens, harbingers, and all that cool dark, evil looking shit that is a necessity in any heavy metal album cover of merit! Get your dose of black magic on April 16th, when ‘Cursed Be Thy Kingdom’ is finally turned loose upon the world.”
