Biography

Cracow, Poland (2003 – present)

Witchking is a heavy metal band hailing from Cracow, Poland

Initial idea of this band arouse in fall 2003 in minds of Mateusz “Gajdek” Gajdzik And Darek “Rambo” Bieniek, when they left their former group Rapid Fire. New found project was called “Steel Crown”. They were joined by drummer Borsuk and Sado, who took second guitar duties. Unfortunately this line-up was short lived and didn’t make any musical impact. In February 2004 Paweł “Pane” Kopciał joined the band as a vocalist, a few weeks later Marcin “Dziadek” Jungiewicz took over the drums. First original compositions started to appear.

In the late spring Tomasz “Hadro” Pater joined as a second guitarist, so the line-up was completed. It was around that time that the band was renamed to WITCHKING, a name inspired by one of the bands’ songs. On the 12th of June 2004, the band played its first gig: an opening slot for MAYHAYRON in Popularny Pub in Cracow. In summer, Pane’s health problems started to become a serious problem, therefore in September the band decided to recruit a new vocalist - Kamil Łacina.

Three weeks later, on the 9th of October 2004 WITCHKING entered DIAMOND RECORDING STUDIO, supervised by the ever-watchful eyes of Domink Burzym. The recording of a two-song debut material took only two days, and a CD containing “Under The Siege” and “And The Bearer Goes…”, as well as a bonus video footage from the studio, was ready. At the end of October 2004 period of intensive live activities has begun. Band played on the third edition of Raise Your Fest (Elizabeth, Mayhayron, Kruk and Dragon’s Eye), Metal Crusade III (Warning, Stos), Raven Metal Party (Stos), February mini-tour Heavy Metal Ride II (Grimond, Dragon’s Eye) and spring mini-tour with Monstrum.

    Bo polskie nie oznacza od razu, że zje.bane. W naszym uroczym kraju jest wiele zespołów godnych uwagi jednakże jeszcze o nich nie usłyszeliśmy.
