PEST Webzine interview

Please tell us about the history of your band and its members
Bewitcher was conceived in February of 2013 with myself (M.- guitars/vox), and A. (bass/vox).  In a drunken moment of clarity at an Enslaved show, I revealed to A. that I wanted to form a new band that was 100% rooted in old metal.  The primary inspiration was to come from the early speed metal bands, NWOBHM, and the first wave of Black Metal. I started writing some riffs and before we knew it, we had nearly an entire album's worth of songs.  It was like they wrote themselves...quite a (black) magical experience.  : )
