“We are firmly linked to Germany on the musical side”, said Mario Bove, frontman of the band, “because some of our favorite acts are band like Kreator, Destruction, Accept, or Blind Guardian, but above all, because we had our baptism of fire on huge stages by opening Doro and UDO’s Russian gigs last year. German public is well known for being demanding and learned about metal performances. This excites us much more.”

We cannot wait to work with Alex Azzali who will produce it at Alpha Omega Studio in Como. In this album, will feature, for the first time our new line-up with two guitars. We already have few songs ready and the result seems to be something heavier than previous 'Rock the Evil' although more melodic, massive and compact. For the next two months the rehearsal room will be our home and we will be restless until completion of our work. Hopefully we will enter the studio between January and March 2016."

Metal Tank Records has signed a deal with the Italian stoner rock sensation Circle of Witches. The band will release an upcoming album entitled "Rock the Evil" on February 15th, 2014.The first preview from the album has been posted on YouTube and can be heard below.
Circle of Witches is currently working on new material and will be recording a full-length album later this Summer. The band's publicist issued the following press release:
"Do you like your music to be dirty, loud, straight and powerful? Then better remember this name: Circle Of Witches! The band was formed in Salerno, Italy, in 2004, and except releasing several demos and debut album in 2007, managed to play hundreds of club and festival shows.
"Imagine the following mixture: lyrics about magic, urban legends, sex and rock 'n' roll, influence of acts such as Motorhead, Black Sabbath, Kyuss and Fu Manchu, and an ultimate raw energy and die hard attitude - so you will know what to expect. Stage is these three guys' natural environment, so if you show up at their live show, you can be sure their sweat will make the floor slippery, and the amplifiers will reach its peak.
"Now, shortly after mini tour during which Circle Of Witches played in Italy, Austria and England, the band closed down doors to their rehearsal room, where they work on new, full length studio album, which will be recorded this summer! So, are you happy with the new Grand Magus album? Can't wait for the new Black Sabbath record and tour? Good. If you like these two, remember that there is new band for you on the horizon. Circle Of Witches, bringers of Hell 'n' Roll!"
