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, Encyclopedia of Evil was a fun all-covers EP that followed closely on the heels of BEWITCHED’s celebrated debut album, Diabolical Desecration. Totaling 25 minutes, here can you hear the band rip through reverential covers of VENOM, BATHORY, MERCYFUL FATE, CELTIC FROST, and even BLACK WIDOW and concluding the record with the then-brand-new track Hellcult. Alternately, Hell Comes to Essen was released in 1998 following BEWITCHED’s celebrated second album, Pentagram Prayer, the year before. This raw ‘n’ bloody live album was recorded during 1997’s monumental World Domination Tour, which included then-labelmates ENSLAVED, DARK TRANQUILITY, SWORDMASTER, DELLAMORTE, and the pre-DRAGON FORCE†DEMONIAC. Collected together for the first time ever, a wild ‘n’ indispensible collection!
