The wait is over! The saga of Seattle sludge rockers WITCHBURN’s "Der Hexenhammer" premieres today on Revolvermag.com and also in the current edition of Revolver's "Worlds Loudest Newsletter." Directed by Jeff Ferrell (Ghost Light) this music video takes us through the sacrificial and slaughterous history of those accused of practicing witchcraft in centuries past.

"Der Hexenhammer" is the very first video from the downtuned female fronted four piece. The single comes off the current album Bathed In Blood which is available now on iTunes.
Before taking off on tour with WILD THRONE and APE MACHINE this summer; friends, families, and fans will join WITCHBURN at home in Seattle, WA where they will celebrate with an official release party at Feedback Lounge. The band will be performing a special, acoustic set of re-invented originals and will then be joined onstage by friends from multiple Seattle area bands for an all-acoustic tribute to Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Ozzy Osbourne and Dio. It all goes down this Friday May 30th. Check out Facebook for more details.
WITCHBURN's self released 'BATHED IN BLOOD' was recorded by Jack Endino and is available now on iTunes.
“Jamie Nova's voice takes no prisoners. Bluesy and deep, gritty and unfaltering- think, ''Black Velvet, If You Please'' but without all the drama. It makes sense considering her years of practice in her other endeavor, the AC/DC tribute band Hells Belles, as Bon Scott-Brian Johnson. In the Seattle-based Witchburn, Nova's strong vocals are a quintessential match for straightforward rock. Guitarist Mischa Kianne, who's been hammering away metal riffs since junior high, is her six-string equivalent. With a debut album produced by Jack Endino, the man behind seemingly every good band from Nirvana to High on Fire, Witchburn is rock incarnate.” --San Francisco Bay Guardian
“Seattle's Witchburn has that seething, Southern-fried hard rock-meet-metal style that's hard to listen to without at least a little head banging. If a witch were to burn, she'd probably howl similarly to the band's throaty female vocalist, Jamie Nova. She snarls, she hollers -- holding notes over wailing guitar. The band's latest release, This Is How We Slay Our Demons, is full of juicy metal.” --The San Francisco Weekly
The band is also currently writing heavier than ever material for a third album, stay tuned!
Featuring former HELL'S BELLES vocalist Jamie Nova, guitar and violinist Mischa Kianne, Dana Sims on drums and bassist Jacy Peckham; WITCHBURN delivers passion forward southern-edged sludge metal infused rock. Tapping into a classic rock vein with gritty guitar lines, their smoky grooves remain deep and heavy. Their current album BATHED IN BLOOD is seething with ready-for-battle anthems, apocalyptic overtones and dirty, doom-laden riffs that keep your ears at attention while confirming that these are dedicated musicians with genuine love for all that is heavy. See for yourself all summer when WITCHBURN hits the road this June!
