BURNING WITCHES are not only the hottest export from the Alpine Republic, the five-piece from Switzerland is also one of the most thrilling newcomers in old school heavy metal spanning the last few years – globally! The new album ‘Hexenhammer’ will be released on November 9th, via Nuclear Blast Records. 

Today, the band is pleased to release the first trailer for this upcoming masterpiece. Check it out and find out more about the band BURNING WITCHES below.

The band already released the first single titled “Executed”. The song can be heard and watched in the form of a lyric/performance video over on YouTube here.

The band states:

“We are very proud to show you our first lyric & performance video for the song ‘EXECUTED’. It is a very powerful & speedy track that tells the story of the ‘last Witch’ Anna Göldi from Switzerland and her harrowing life. A tragic and true story that fits into our HEXENHAMMER album theme!“
