“‘Witch’s Game’ was forged for the upcoming animated movie “Planet of Doom”. Since we reunited in 2015 there was always a question if we would release new material. It was always on the top of our minds and when approached to write a song that would be featured in this amazing movie we agreed. We had already been working on songs for our 5th studio album and this was a perfect opportunity to dip our hooves back in the lake of fire! We are all very excited about the bands future and hope you like this sampling of what we have been brewing in our secret lair!”
