Witchery: Hello Caligula, goodbye Legion!
Witchery:  Hello Caligula, goodbye Legion!
Some of you might be surprised to see a new face at the Hultsfred Festival tonight when WITCHERY enter the stage to declare Witchkrieg over Sweden. Patrik Jensen (guitar, also in The Haunted): “We are saddened to announce the departure of Legion (ex-Marduk, ex-Devian), singer of last years Witchery ear crusher "Witchkrieg". Unfortunately, conflicting schedules made a continued collaboration impossible. We are very thankful for Legion's input and work on our latest album, and we wish him only the very best for the future. Witchery will however not remain without a leader to take them thru the netherworlds and beyond. None other than Emperor Magus Caligula (ex-Dark Funeral) has decided to once again adorn his armor, and go off to battle for the better of darkness and evil.”

Emperor Magus Caligula: "Getting an offer to play with some of Sweden's finest elite in metal, I just couldn't resist. Together with Witchery, I will once again spread chaos and hatred upon this world. The emperor is back, and together we will conquer ALL!!!"
Also fans in Finland, Germany and Norway can soon witness the power of Emperor Magus Caligula throat torture at the upcoming Tuska, Summerbreeze and Inferno Festivals. Don’t miss it because WITCHERY don’t play for everybody everywhere:
