Unleashing a new track, "Starfire Maelstrom," Portland's Bewitcher have recently previewed their upcoming album, Spell Shock, set to be released on September 27th through Century Media Records.

Says Bewitcher frontman Mateo von Bewitcher of the lead track:

It's full of apocalyptic, speed demon vibes, and imagery taken from the worst of current events that only get more apocalyptic as time goes by. It's the feeling you get from 'Fight Fire with Fire' on [Metallica's] 'Ride the Lightning.' It's immediate how it feeds into themes of human destruction and war, but also has cosmic elements. It's a classic album opener.

The upcoming record was produced by long-time fan and renowned punk old-head Lars Frederiksen (Rancid / Old Firm Casuals).

Says Frederiksen on Spell Shock:

It's the best record I've ever produced for one of the best bands in the world.
