Witchcraft is a Swedish Heavy Rock band founded in 2000. Magnus Pelander (formerly of Norrsken) formed Witchcraft in 2000 in order to record a tribute to Pentagram's Bobby Liebling and Roky Erickson. The "No Angel or Demon" single was released in 2002 by Primitive Art Records which caught the ear of Lee Dorrian's label Rise Above Records, who quickly signed them. A year later, the band were brought back together with Jonas Arnesén taking the place of original drummer Jens Henriksson, and his brother Mats taking Ola's place on the bass.
The new 4th studio album marks the recording debut of the band's new members Simon Solomon (guitar), Tom Jondelius (guitar) and Oscar Johansson (drums). Magnus Pelander has stated that he will focus on his vocals without playing guitar anymore.
The album "Legend", which marks the bands first after a long 5 year hiatus, is scheduled to be released September 21th on double vinyl; its also been announced there will be a limited edition purple vinyl available. pressed to 250 copies which will be hand numbered in gatefold, incl. DIN A2 poster. This version is unfortunately already sold out, I did not manage to get a copy this time, so I have to settle for the regular edition. Do you have it and want to give / sell it, please contact me.
