WITCHBURNER To Release 'Bloodthirsty Eyes' In February

Fulda-based metallers WITCHBURNER have been active in the German underground scene since 1992 and they never surrendered. The band kept the spirit alive when everyone else was going astray, and they didn't give a damn about trends that kept coming and going or about the problems that naturally occur when a band has to struggle with constant lineup changes. Now, after twenty years of relentless thrashing, and after having released six albums and nine demos, splits and EPs, WITCHBURNER is about to unleash yet another pure old-school thrash attack.

Due on February 22 via High Roller Records, "Bloodthirsty Eyes" combines the band's original, long-developed trademarks with the qualities of the two new members who joined WITCHBURNER in 2011: new vocalist Pino's raspy voice is full of brutal, rough power that fits perfectly with the totally classic but still very inspired thrash-riffing, which is provided by long-time member Simon Seegel and the new man on lead guitar, Michael "Mächel" Frank. Both new members added a fair share of fresh blood and ideas: While Pino wrote all the lyrics for "Bloodthirsty Eyes", Mächel's creative and precise solos add the last touch of technical refinement that makes a thrash song a real thrash song.

"Bloodthirsty Eyes" track listing:

01. Sermon Of Profanity

03. Master And Slave
04. Path Of The Sinner
05. Absolute Collapse
