Led by guitarist Jack Frost (SAVATAGE, BELLADONNA, THE BRONX CASKET CO., METALIUM, SPEEED), SEVEN WITCHES has been one of America's best classic '80s-inspired metal bands — specializing in American traditional power metal, reminiscent of bands such as HELSTAR, MANOWAR and METAL CHURCH. And on September 18, the group will issue its latest album, "The Way Of The Wicked", via the ILS Group. Mixed and mastered by Joey Vera of ARMORED SAINT and FATES WARNING, the CD has been preceded by a video for the album track "Better Days", which can be seen below.
Comprised of Frost, Anthony Cross (LIVESAY, SHADOW IMAGE, FISCHEL'S BEAST, ATTACKER) on vocals, Ronnie Parkes (FARCRY, CLEAVAGE, TANGO DOWN, REECE, BONFIRE) on bass, and Johnny Kelly (TYPE O NEGATIVE, DANZIG, PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, SEVENTH VOID, KILL DEVIL HILL) on drums, SEVEN WITCHES certainly possesses one of the most impressive pedigrees of any metal band past or present. 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."
Said Frost: "[I am] 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."
