Video Premiere: DeathWytch – “Todeshexe”


DeathWytch have just unveiled a weird new video for the esoteric song “Todeshexe.” You can check out the lyric video for the song below.

The name DeathWytch is a character name from Orpheus’ Saga, brought to life by Sartoraaus, and the band blend the most unlikely of genres in their sound. 

“Musically, DeathWytch made a cautious effort to create an unholy alliance between oddly coupled genres of beloved music: Black Metal-Lounge meets Halloween Jazz,” their press release explains. “Using traditional black metal instruments, but, replacing the lead guitarist with a violinist. A tasteful splash of traditional black metal blast beats were infused to interrupt groovy rhythms.

“The lyrical theme is a fantastical impression to the mundanes, while also being a memorialization of Dragana’s Shamanka rituals; a deposition of the observer to her panic within the womb of this world as she reckons with the inevitable binding to death, whether it be eternal nightmare or blissful dream.”

The band also claim the album can be summed up in one simple sentence:

“The Wytch is Free!”

The weirdness of this single knows no bounds, so stay tuned for more when their full, self-titled album drops April 26 via Moribund Records.
