Debut album “Misanthropist” is released

The 31st October is upon us at last, what better a time to release the album than on Halloween? So finally the release date is here. Those of you who pre-ordered the album will have it by now and so far there has been some positive feedback from quite a few people.

We have updated the MP3 page with a few of the new songs that appear on the album so you can have a listen before you decide to buy. They are the full versions.

If you haven’t bought yours yet then click on the shop tab at the top of this page and order directly from us. Whilst you’re at it, why not buy yourself a Witchclan patch?

That’s right, the Witchclan patches are also now available from us here on this website. Limited to 100 pieces and embroidered to the highest quality using only the finest materials, these patches are a must for your war jacket – none of you should be going without one.

Over the coming months, new material is going to be written and recorded. Whether this is going to be for the next album or perhaps 7” EP remains to be seen at this point but you can guarantee that it’s going to be a cold, spiteful slab of Bestial Hell Metal so keep your eyes and ears open for updates.

T shirts unfortunately are on hold at the moment due to lack of financial backing but rest assured that they will come at some point soon so if you are one of those people who have been asking about them, we are sorry but hopefully we can get some made up as soon as possible.

So that rounds up this update. Thank you to all of you who have bought the album so far, and thank you in advance to those of you who will be buying it.

Until next time – blackened thanks from the Witchclan Horde!

Demo Update


After nearly 5 months, the new demo has been selling well and there are currently about half of the stock remaining. In addition to the cassette version there is now a CD pressing available but this is limited to just 20 copies. If you buy the demo but would prefer a CD, please specify this in your order or you will automatically be sent the cassette version.

Other news…

In the coming months there will be two new releases from Witchclan. The first is going to be a limited edition 7” single which will be a split release with UK band Abwerhschlacht and will feature one song from each band. The amount available is still undecided but more news on this will be posted nearer to the release date.

A fourth demo is also in the pipeline. This will feature brand new material from the band and also some re-written material that dates back to 1994. Witchclan’s former member James Pruden will be performing lead guitar on some of the material and this release is set to be available by the end of the Summer of 2011.


Witchclan returns after 17 years of absence

In 2009 I decided to re-form the band as a solo project and have been writing new material and re-working old material in time for a studio demo which is now complete and will be released on 1st September 2010.

The new demo will be the band’s first release in 17 years and will feature two new tracks plus a re-recording of a classic track that the band wrote all the way back in 1993 and appeared on the 1993 promo tape. Also featured on the new demo will be an intro and outro of haunting and chilling ambiance submitted by Peter Leathley the bands founder and former member. It will be available on cassette only and will have a limited pressing of just 200.

We are now accepting orders for the demo for just £3.50 in the UK or £4.00 abroad, you can do this by going to the shop page on this website.

You can follow the band and get further information at and There is also an info page for the band on Metal Archives.

Plans for the future include a limited pressing of 50 t shirts, a 4th demo and also a split 7″ single with another UK Black Metal band yet to be confirmed. Although the band play Black Metal, the term Hell Metal is better suited to the band to avoid being grouped with a somewhat over-saturated BM scene.

If you are a fan of the early 90’s Necro Black Metal sound then it is worth checking out Witchclan. More?
