“Punishment” will be the fourth video released by the band, following the release of a lyric video for the song “That Damn Devil“, as well as music videos for the tracks “Hatred Index” and “The True Knot“, all of which are available on the band’s YouTube Channel.
Witch Casket was formed by ex-members of Symphonic Black Metal band Sothis from Los Angeles, and guitarist Neal Tiemann. After over a decade of creating Symphonic Black Metal, these musicians were looking to write more melodic death metal style songs, while still keeping the dark symphonic aspects from the previous band’s style.
