Witchkrieg is the fifth full-length studio album by 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 also mixed by Tue Madsen at his Antfarm Studios. Witchkrieg also showcases an impressive line-up of guest musicians such as Andy LaRocque from King Diamond, Kerry King from thrash legends 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 longtime vocalist Tony "Toxine" Kampner. His replacement is Erik "Legion" Hagstedt.[3]
