2019 is nearly at an end. Whist the year draws to a close, many people are ramping up for the assault on 2020.
Burning Witches will release their third studio album Dance With The Devil to the world on March 6th 2020 via Nuclear Blast. There’s no rest for the wicked, as less than two weeks after the release of their Wings Of Steel EP, the band have unveiled the cover artwork for their upcoming record, which was designed by Hungarian artist Gyula Havancsák (Blind Guardian Twilight Orchestra, Accept, Powerwolf, Stratovarius etc.) and Destruction and Gomorra guitarist Damir Eskic.
As you can see, there is a lot of lineage in this style of artwork in Gyula’s historical work, and with heavy metal in general. It really is a quite superb cover!
Even before we had the album title, we knew that we wanted a cover design in the style of Ken Kelly, who did the legendary Kiss, Rainbow and Manowar covers. Our vision was to show the Burning Witches, larger than life, in this fantasy art style and with a special female touch. We love to work with the Hungarian artist Gyula and told him about our plan and he basically realised our dream of a very eye catching and energetic cover design! We hope our fans will enjoy it as much as we do!Burning Witches on their new artwork
Enjoy the silence while you can, as Burning Witches are set to unleash hell in the form of a new single to kick off 2020 the right way, stay tuned…!
