ARKHAM WITCH "Demos from the Deep" limited digipak and shows.
We were supposed to release now a new full-length album of the British Lovecraftian heavy/doom metallers ARKHAM WITCH, but unfortunately the band encountered a few setbacks while recording the album. Hopefully it will be out early next year. Meanwhile we have a treat for the die-hard fans of this bunch. We're releasing their first (2009) demo, from the time when it was just a duo (Simon Iff? on vocals, guitars and bass, and Emily Ningauble on drums), giving it a proper treatment, because originally it was out only on CD-R. Now it has been re-mastered, and will be released as limited to 250 copies digipak, with 2 bonus tracks (one of them first time on CD and the other a previously unreleased version of "For Metal" song), under the title "Demos from the Deep". Like the other 2 CDs (of HI-GH and ALBERT BELL'S SACRO SANCTUS), it will be released on November 14th (at the Hammer of Doom festival), where we'll have a small table space for selling.
Three songs off the album, "Arkham Witch", "Let England Prevail" and "Suicide 75", are available for streaming from our Bandcamp player on the ARKHAM WITCH page and on "Demos from the Deep" release page on our website. The complete track listing of the CD is as follows:
2. Let England Prevail
3. Suicide 75
4. The Kraken
5. Legions of the Deep
7. The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune [bonus track]
8. For Metal [bonus track]

Check more info about "Demos from the Deep" on the page of this release.
The digipak is available from our SHOP page and if you order it by November 14th, there will be German shipping costs applicable, which are much more convenient for orders from outside of Europe as well as within Germany of course.
And, as always, those who don't collect CDs, can pre-order the album as digital download (in lossless formats) from our Bandcamp page. Later on it will be distributed digitally by CD Baby and made available also from iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic and other retailers.
ARKHAM WITCH have recently played at the warm-up show of Malta Doom Metal festival (on October 23rd) - it was one big party with full audience participation and guest vocalists on stage (Jonathan "Sealey" Seale of IRON VOID and Leo Stivala of FORSAKEN). Check out some photos below!
In a few days they're going to play with GOATESS and IRON VOID in Wakefield, UK . At the end of this month (November 29th) they'll play a special THE LAMP OF THOTH gig in Brugges, Belgium, and on January 10th they'll perform at the Hard Metal fest XXI in Mangualde, Portugal. And together with OUTRAGE (who also played at the last Malta Doom Metal festival) they have been confirmed also for the respected Metal Magic festival in Denmark (July 9th-11th 2015).
