Pittsburgh pagan metal outfit Icarus Witch are gearing up for their new album, No Devil Lived On, out October 27th via Cleopatra Records. The record marks the band’s first-ever concept album. To coincide with the reveal, the group has shared a video for the song “Rise of the Witches.” 


The band comments:

“Many of the Witches in my circle are gifted artists, teachers, healers, herbalists, environmentalists, and compassionate activists – a far cry from the stereotypical villains the media often portrays us as. Yet despite enjoying more legal protection now than previous generations did, today’s pagans are still misunderstood and often suffer from dangerous systematic discrimination. As a genre, underground metal has long been about empowering marginalized people to stand together against hypocrites and bullies. ‘Rise of the Witches’ is a metallic battle cry for modern occultists that emphatically declares to close-minded zealots – You’re done here, never again.”
