In keeping with the tradition of throwing curveballs and shattering expectations of who BEWITCHER is, Portland’s speed metal heathens offer up their most dynamic tale of revenge and death yet. Paired with a music video inspired by 70’s Hammer Horror through a Tarantino/Lynch lens, “Valley of the Ravens” is a menacing funeral dirge encapsulating the entire BEWITCHER sound: https://youtu.be/gwHQTxBd1vA
Von Bewitcher (vox & guitars) comments: “In the burning times… Tried and convicted for her crimes of black magic, a witch is sent to her demise in the dreaded wastelands where the scavenger birds make their home. Awash in atmosphere and dark bluesy energy, ‘Valley of the Ravens’ is a tale of death, rebirth and eternal vengeance.”
“Valley Of The Ravens” is the 3rd song taken from BEWITCHER’s upcoming 3rd studio album, “Cursed Be Thy Kingdom”, that is set for a release on April 16th, 2021.

When one finds themselves at the proverbial crossroads – face to face with the Devil himself – who wouldn’t choose the left hand path? Honestly, evil is too enticing, too strong, and Hell has the best music anyway. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, heavy metal mongrels BEWITCHER made their pact with Lucifer years ago, and have been walking the dark path ever since.
Recorded at The Captain’s Quarters in Ventura, California by Armand John Anthony (Night Demon), and mixed by Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Megadeth), “Cursed Be Thy Kingdom” is a powerhouse, heavy-metal-rock-’n’-roll record forged in the white hot fires of Hell. The front cover was done by Paolo Girardi (Power Trip and many more).
