WITCHHAMMER Part Ways With Singer; Seek Replacement

Norwegian power/thrash metallers WITCHHAMMER have issued the following update:

“As you may have noticed there have been some silent weeks from the Witchhammer camp – this don’t mean that nothing have happened…

Our time has been filled with ups and downs, where we can start with our biggest issue, finding a replacement for Thomas, as he now has decided to leave the band. All has been sorted out in friendly matters, and we wish Thomas and his family all the best in the future .

At the same time, our creativity with the new forthcoming album has been outstanding.

We are now looking for someone who really wants to put his creativity, effort and mind into this project, as we’ve now almost finishing the writing process for our new yet-untitled album, but need an inspirational final touch from our new singer.

For those of you who wants to apply for an audition, or feels like this is the band you want to be a part of – send an email to
