Witchkrieg is the fifth full-length studio album by the Swedish thrash metal band Witchery, released on June 21, 2010, in Europe and June 29, 2010, in North America. This album is their second on Century Media Records. Like their previous album, Don't Fear the Reaper, Witchkrieg was mixed by Tue Madsen at his Antfarm Studios. Witchkrieg showcases an impressive line-up of guest musicians such as Andy LaRocque from King Diamond, Kerry King from the thrash band Slayer, Hank Shermann of Mercyful Fate, Lee Altus and Gary Holt from Exodus and Jim Durkin from Dark Angel.

This is the first Witchery album without the long time vocalist Tony "Toxine" Kampner. His replacement is Erik "Legion" Hagstedt.[3]
