SEVEN WITCHES Announce New Album, 'The Way Of The Wicked'

Artist: 
 
Led by guitarist Jack Frost, Seven Witches has been one of America's best classic 80's-inspired metal bands - specializing in American traditional power metal, reminiscent of bands such as Helstar, Manowar, and Metal Church. And on September 18th, the group will be issuing their latest album, 'The Way of the Wicked,' via the ILS Group (and mixed and mastered by Joey Vera of Armored Saint and Fates Warning), which has been preceded by a video for a standout album track, "Better Days":
 

Comprised of Frost on guitar (Savatage, Belladonna, The Bronx Casket Co. Metalium, Speeed), Anthony Cross on vocals (Livesay, Shadow Image, Fischel's Beast, Attacker), Ronnie Parkes on bass (Farcry, Cleavage, Tango Down, Reece, Bonfire), and Johnny Kelly on drums (Type O Negative, Danzig, Pale Horse Named Death, Seventh Void, Kill Devil Hill), Seven Witches certainly possesses one of the most impressive pedigrees of any metal band past or present. 

And the metal community is taking notice of the band, as evidenced by over 3,000 "likes" on the band's Facebook page, while the metal-archives.com praised the group's earlier album, 'Call Upon the Wicked,' by saying, "This is a must-own in all facets, and if the true meaning of power metal is ever in question during your moments of introspection this will shut tight any doors leading you astray, that I can guarantee." 

Soon, the rest of the world will get to experience the mighty metal of Seven Witches.

"Hey everybody, so pumped on our new release. I'm so proud of the way the guys just killed it on this album. Our first single and video is a fresh start for us. A true classic heavy rock feel with the rhythm section of the '70s and a throaty vocal feel. Hope you all like this I'm so happy with our new vibe." --J Frost

SEVEN WITCHES Latest Release Nears Completion

Artist: 
 
Seven Witches is near the finish line on the follow up to 2013’s “REBIRTH”. Jack Frost (Savatage, Metallium, Bronx Casket Co.) says “I pushed myself harder than ever as a player/producer. I owe that to the amazing job that Johnny Kelly did during drum tracking. Johnny's playing is the stuff of legends. Everything you hear is the man himself. Remeniscent of Cozy Powell, John Bonham, and Bill Ward. I'm so honored to call him my Drummer and Brother! his playing made me push myself to a new level!"
Johnny Kelly is also currently recording with Danzig & Kill Devil Hill
 
This CD will surprise a lot of people, not a typical Witches CD it has a very bluesy feel. It's still heavy but there's a groove element. Take Led Zep, Bad Co. and Whitesnake and smash in a little NWOBHM and there you have it!

“Ronnie Parkes tone and monster riffing have given the songs final life. As I sit and listen I can't believe these are the same tracks from the original demos. It's like watching a child grow. Sorry, I've never been so happy with songs that I created. Maybe it's just that I didn't push, I just put my heart into it.”

“I also had the opportunity to hear some of the tracks from the upcoming Bonfire CD That Ronnie & David Reece recorded. This is some Killer shit. Fans of old and new will love this! David killed on it. I wish the stars for Ronnie, He deserves it!  Look for Bonfire on tour all over the globe this year!”
Anthony Cross says:  “Writing with Jack is a fun roller coaster  Jack and I try to do what’s best for the song. I call jack the mad scientist his ideas are all over the place. And I think it’s great! This Cd will have something for everyone. It’s not cookie cutter or intended to sound like previous releases. It’s new music.  I have a lot of respect for all the vocalists that came before me. But it is not my intention to try and be one of them I just try to do the songs that they recorded justice when I get onstage.”
 
The new record is being mixed by Joey Vera (Fates Warning-Armored Saint-Motor Sister) and we couldn’t be happier with the result. We also have a couple of dates with Armored Saint & Saxon in May.
 
Our new CD Tentatively Titled ‘THE WAY OF THE WICKED” will be distributed by ILS/Caroline/Universal Group in the U.S.
 
“We can’t wait to get out there and show you what we’ve got!”
