unveil 'Wings Of Steel' guitar playthrough; new 12" EP out December 6, 2019
In June, BURNING WITCHES introduced their new front-woman Laura alongside the release of a brand new single titled 'Wings Of Steel.' The song, which showcases Laura's vocals for the first time, is already available digitally, but as a present to fans, the band have decided to release it as a 12" vinyl EP with the same title. The EP will be out on December 6, 2019 through Nuclear Blast and includes the aforementioned track, alongside three live recordings from Wacken Open Air 2019. To bridge the time until its availability, the group has now launched an official playthrough video featuring their guitarists Romana and Sonia.
Romana comments, "'Wings Of Steel' has a classic thrash/speed metal riff, that has its inspiration in the old school sound. It is one of my fave songs of the new record and that is one of the reasons why we have had the tune in our setlist for a while already. It has had amazing reactions live and will be a mainstay in our live set for a long time! I'm overjoyed to present you our first official guitar playthrough with my burning sister Sonia - I hope you enjoy it as much as we did recording it!"
Sonia adds, "'Wings Of Steel' is a powerful and speedy heavy metal song. The combination of the thrashy verse riffs and its melodic chorus makes this song absolutely epic. I love playing this song live because it's the moshpit track, and when people mosh; it’s like a mutual exchange of adrenaline between the musician and the audience! Hell yes!"
