Bewitched - Hibernum in Perpetuum (1996)

I'll start off this blog with the rather unknown chilean band Bewitched. Their sound is very special, as they gather influences from Candlemass, Mercyful Fate and second wave Black Metal and the result is quite interesting. Their first album Hibernum in Perpetuum was released in 1993 by Picoroco Records based in Santiago, Chile. It was released on tape and CD formats, both of which were very limited and they're hard to find as originals these days. A tape reissue was released in 2008 by Black Mountain Records, but again it was extremely limited.
