WITCHERY guitarist Jensen comment about “Welcome, Night” as follows: “On “I Am Legion” we have tried a few things that Witchery never has done before. “Welcome, Night”, with its odd timing, atypical arrangement and with riffs that are meant to enhance the vocals/lyrics (and not the other way around as per usual) makes the song probably my favorite track on the album. I like how the lyrics turned out too. They might lead you to think about a certain infamous incident in history, but I chose to place it in “the year 1855” to distance the song from that, yet keeping it in the same Victorian setting. I got a question from a journalist if the lyrics somehow were about “the Devil’s footprints” that happened that specific year. They’re not connected, but I can recommend looking up that particular incident. Pretty interesting. Please enjoy the contribution of our two great friends – Nick Barker’s spoken word and Mike Wead’s solo – in the song as well!“
The album’s second single “Of Blackened Wing” and its video produced video by Martin Hultgren / Gryt Film can be checked out here: https://youtu.be/Lyy4LN2_7zc
A brief trailer for “I Am Legion” can also be seen here: https://youtu.be/xrc4VdkUQ4cAs with last year’s previous album “In His Infernal Majesty’s Service”, “I Am Legion” was created in the WITCHERY line-up consisting of Angus Norder (Vocals), Jensen (Guitar), Rickard Rimfält (Lead Guitar), Sharlee D’Angelo (Bass) and Chris Barkensjö (Drums). The album was also produced and mixed by Daniel Bergstrand at Dugout Studios (Behemoth, In Flames, Meshuggah) and comes packaged in powerful artwork by Andreas Diaz Pettersson.
The album’s initial CD pressing comes as Digipak with 2 bonus tracks: “Ragnarök” and “Apex Ghoul”. “I Am Legion” is also available as 180 gram vinyl version on either black vinyl or limited colored runs on clear vinyl (100 copies via CM Webshop) and transparent red vinyl (200 copies via CM Distro).
