During its nearly 20-year history, Black Witchery has appropriately earned recognition as one of the most important cults of bestial black metal ever to have emerged from North America.
Under its original moniker, Witchery, the band released two demos before changing its name and then went on to produce an EP and two split recordings before unleashing full-length debut, “Desecration of the Holy Kingdom,” in 2001. These early recordings capture an evolution in Black Witchery’s sound that has led to the band’s current position as one of the most violent purveyors of black metal.
On October 31st, on both CD and double-LP formats, Nuclear War Now! Productions is proud to resurrect the unholy document of Black Witchery’s evil ascension with “Evil Shall Prevail,” a collection of all tracks from the band’s ’97 demo, “Evil Shall Prevail” demo, “Summoning of Infernal Legions” EP, and the contribution to the “Hellstorm of Evil Vengeance” split with Conqueror.
Additionally, previously-unreleased outtakes from the “Hellstorm…” recording session are also included, as is Black Witchery’s cover of Sarcófago’s “Black Vomit” from the “Tribute to Sarcófago” compilation CD from 2001.
