Swiss heavy metal unit Burning Witches are getting ready to embark on an epic North American tour this winter. Bewitching audiences across the globe since their debut in 2017, the band has made acclaimed appearances at festivals like the legendary Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze, and Rock Harz Open Air, as well as touring with greats such as K.K. Downing of Judas Priest’s new band KK’s Priest.

On fifteen energetic tracks, Burning Witches ring the bells for a midnight mass in smoky-warm bars. Restless and intense, the fierce women in the band shred their instruments on “The Dark Tower” like no other, but with the soft mid-tempo track ‘Tomorrow’, the witches settle down to gather their strength for just a moment.
Bittersweet melodies float up to the sky like weightless feathers, carrying a message of five confident women. Ready again to gradually increase the tempo, ‘Heart Of Ice’ and ‘Arrow Of Time’ ensnare with extravagant guitar tapping and heroic vocals by Laura, while ‘The Lost Souls’ merges devilish staccato and legato riffs, creating an ominous atmosphere amid the bewitching screams of the five Swiss enchantresses. With their new studio album, Burning Witches not only bring back the glory days of heavy metal, but push it beyond, trapping the soul of each listener with energetic performances on “The Dark Tower”.
