The short history of WitcheR…
WitcheR’s history started back in 2010. The band was formed by Gere Karola (synths, vocal) and Neubauer Roland (guitars, drums, vocal) in order to perform atmospheric black metal music based on classical music elements and strong synths harmonies, following such bands’ heritage as Summoning or early Dimmu Borgir.
From the very beginning, catchy melodies and elevated mood took important parts in the music. The lyrics are mostly about witchcraft, Hungarian folklore, adherence to old values, and the maximum opposition to the modern world.
In the past years, next to several demos, split albums, two full-length albums were born under the band’s flag (Csendes domb – 2015; A gyertyák csonkig égnek – 2019), and the year 2022 opened a new dimension for WitcheR in many aspects.
The time has come for the watershed’s third album, which was released on CD, tape and vinyl on October 8th, 2022, entitled Lélekharang. In every respect, the album represents a completely new level in the band’s life, and even the first music videos were shot in connection with it.
