- Jewelcase CD
Formed in 1995 by erstwhile members of KATATONIA, NAGLFAR, and ANCIENT WISDOM, Sweden’s BEWITCHED were a devilishly fun proposition for those members to blow off some steam. And from their debut album in 1996 onward for the next decade, the band stood at that forefront of the burgeoning blackthrash resurgence that would gain steam as the ‘90s went on.
Originally released in 1996, Diabolical Desecration was BEWITCHED’s debut album, and arguably the band’s rawest and rowdiest recording. On this album, KATATONIA’s Blackheim made his only full-length performance, sharing vocals and guitars with ANCIENT WISDOM’s Vargher, who’d then continue on as the band’s primary vocalist/guitarist. Still fun ‘n’ fiery as the day it was released, Diabolical Desecration can be neatly summed up with its opening track: "Hard as Steel (Fast as Hell)"!
