Arkham Witch Reveals New Album "Legions Of The Deep" Details

England's own traditional metal brigands Arkham Witch are returning with their 2nd album "Legions of the Deep," which will be released on November 9th through Metal on Metal Records. The label comments:

"Those who know the previous works of the band know their personal take on NWOBHM, traditional heavy and doom metal. Lyrically the album features the familiar weird pulp fiction obsessions, Lovecraftian monsters, Howardian heroes, underground occultism, killer cyborgs and zombie cowboys, and musically it strides the frequencies between bands like Deep Switch, Hell, Witchfinder General, Judas Priest, Pentagram, Sanit Vitus, Manilla Road, Cirith ungol, and of course The Lamp of Thoth, the former band of Arkham Witch vocalist Simon and drummer Emily."

A teaser for the "Legions of the Deep" album (featuring a fragment of the title track) can be view below. The title song features additional vocals by Leo Stivala of Maltese doom metal veterans Forsaken. A short clip documenting this recording session that took place on June 23rd in the studio of Chris Grech (Nomad Son) in Mellieha, Malta, has also been posted by the label on YouTube.

The album's track lisingt is:

1. David Lund
2. At the Mountains of Madness
3. Iron Shadows in the Moon
4. Infernal Machine
5. The Cloven Sea
6. On a Horse Called Vengeance
7. Gods of Storm and Thunder
8. Kult of Kutulu
9. Legions of the Deep
10. We're from Keighley
