BURNING WITCHES unveil ‘Wings Of Steel’ drum playthrough, a new 12″ EP out now and also announce 2020 UK tour dates w/ KORPIKLAANI!

2019 has been a super busy, but successful year for BURNING WITCHES: the quintet went on tour with GRAVE DIGGER, introduced their new front-woman Laura at a raft of European festivals, played their own Iberian headline tour – and in between of all these events, they’ve been working on their upcoming second studio album which is due in spring 2020. Before BURNING WITCHES close the year with appearances at three indoor feativals, they are pleased to unleash their brand new »Wings Of Steel« EP through Nuclear Blast today. To mark the occasion, the metal enchantresses have launched an official drum playthrough for the title track of the release, featuring Lala. Watch it over on YouTube:

“The »Wings Of Steel« vinyl EP is the official kick off for the new record. We are excited to show you more from our new album within the next weeks. This special vinyl edition marks the first physical release with our new witch Laura, which makes it an historical turning point of our career. Thanks for all the support we have received – we will pay you back with pure steel!”

The record was produced at Little Creek Studio by the same team as its predecessor: V.O. Pulver (PRO-PAIN, DESTRUCTION, NERVOSA, PÄNZER) and DESTRUCTION legend Schmier, who helped and advised as a close friend of the band. The result is a truly brilliant heavy metal album, which takes away the breath of metal heads worldwide, and of course make people bang their heads!

The stunning cover artwork was created by acclaimed Hungarian artist Gyula, who has also created artwork for DESTRUCTION, ANNIHILATOR, GRAVE DIGGER, STRATOVARIUS, TANKARD and many more.
