Black Witchery is an American extreme metal band from Winter Springs, Florida.[1]

The band evolved in the mid-1990s after the dissolution of the Irreverent.[2] It was originally known as Witchery, before adapting their current name in 1999.[2]

History[edit]

The band issued a pair of splits and an EP before dropping their debut album, Desecration of the Holy Kingdom, in 2001 through Full Moon Productions.[2] In 2005, they signed with the French independent label Osmose Productions and released their second effort, Upheaval of Satanic Might, followed by a split album with Archgoat, entitled Desecration & Sodomy in 2008,[2] which followed with a European tour of the two bands in 2017.[4]

A live album, Live Desecration Ritual, was released in 2010.[2] Their third full-length Inferno of Sacred Destruction arrived in 2010, followed by the Nuclear War Now! Productions-issued Evil Shall Prevail in 2016, the latter of which compiled tracks from the band's early demos and split EPs, and also included previously unreleased material.[2]

On February 2, 2016, former guitarist Steve "Tregenda" Childers died as a result of a car accident at the age of 49.[5]
