    Witch - Live in Obbola [Demo #1] (1983)
    The first recording ever with WITCH. Recorded live in Obbola 1983, WITCH was the opening act for MOGG on this gig.

    Henrik Kjellberg - Vocals (Doc Squeeze, Facer, Jonnys Bomb)
    Anders Hedman - Bass
    Patrik Bergholm - Guitars
    Tomas Jakobsson - Guitars (AguaXero)
    Jan Johansson - Drums


    Witch - Demo #2 (1983)
    Recorded in Tontekniks Studio. It was sent out to various labels to get a record deal.

    Henrik Kjellberg - Vocals (Doc Squeeze, Facer, Jonnys Bomb)
    Anders Hedman - Bass
    Patrik Bergholm - Guitars
    Tomas Jakobsson - Guitars (AguaXero)
    Jan Johansson - Drums

    Witch - Still Alive [Demo #3] (1984)
    WITCH was signed by Tandan Records. This demo was recorded as a pre-production tape for their first
    official release, an EP entitled "Still Alive". Sadly Tandan folded/got bankrupt and it was never released.

    Henrik Kjellberg - Vocals (Doc Squeeze, Facer, Jonnys Bomb)
    Anders Hedman - Bass
    Patrik Bergholm - Guitars
    Tomas Jakobsson - Guitars
    Frank Stenbro - Drums (Gotham City, OZ)

    Witch - Soldier of the Future [Demo #4] (1984)
    The wrecked record deal took hard on WITCH and for some reason they changed the line-up.
    The guitarists Tomas and Patrik was replaced with Ulf Johansson. They went to Åsele to record
    their 4th and last demo 'Soldier of the Future'. Ander's had just bought a Veilette-Citron 8 stringed
    bass but the mixing was so bad that it could barely be heard in the recording. WITCH later folded.

    Henrik Kjellberg are now working with ToonTrack (Drums from Hell).

    Henrik Kjellberg - Vocals (Doc Squeeze, Facer, Jonnys Bomb)
    Anders Hedman - Bass
    Ulf Johansson - Guitars
    Frank Stenbro - Drums (Gotham City, OZ)

    I also got a demo that listed at M.A. as Demo 1983 and was recorded at July 1983 (I think it's from demo #2).
    By the way why demo's number are listed different at M.A. (http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Witch/6907)?

    I uploaded this folder which contains 'Live In Obbola', 'Demo #2', 'Still Alive' and the 2 compilation tracks. Please don't take notice of the wrong labels, tracks are in order as mentioned on Strappado's site though : http://www.4shared.com/zip/BYkYUSSn/Witch.html

    As you can notice I'm missing out on the Soldier Of The Future demo... Anybody can help out with that one? Thanks in advance.

    Some lyrics! thanks to Anders Hedman (the devilish bassist)

    Black Winds
    https://i.imgur.com/xGIJqD8.png

    Black winds calling from the dark
    Try to get away if you see the mark
    Stay close to the holy light
    Say your prayers and beware when he strikes

    Not a scream and not a sound
    You can't speak cause your lips are bound
    With a sign that only you can see
    He'll take your mind and you never go free

    He's gonna take you if you don't run away
    I know it will break you if you the power to stay

    Black winds
    Across the sea
    Across the sky
    Across the land

    I've seen the light and I heard him calling
    His way of life is to destroy us all
    Noone knows when it's time to go
    But you can be sure that it's filled with woe

    Heavy steps sneaks outside your door
    We all know that the holy was is near
    Let's escape from this battlefield
    And give our souls to the one who wield

    Is this real or is it fantasy
    The insecurity is killing me
    Evil always whisper through my head
    A sacred life is never to be found

    Not a scream and not a sound
    You can't speak cause your lips are bound
    With a sign that only you can see
    He'll take your mind and you never go free

    He's gonna take you if you don't run away
    I know it will break you if you the power to stay

    Black winds
    Across the sea
    Across the sky
    Across the land

    Crucifixion
    https://i.imgur.com/cZwLssw.png

    Hear the masses roar
    They stand outside your door
    You wouldn't have a chance
    It's your final dance
    Close your front door
    Shut the windows more
    Your time is over now
    They will show you how

    It's gonna be a crucifixion
    On the stake

    Feel the body bend
    On the hill is your end
    The pole is made of teak
    So put down the peak
    You carry your destiny
    It's too late to be free
    You hear yourself wheeze
    But soon your blood will freeze

    It's gonna be a crucifixion
    On the stake

    It's gonna be a crucifixion
    On the stake

    You feel that rusty nails are hammered through your flesh
    You see your own blood glisten in the dying sun
    The vultures rip up your skin in large stripes
    Your soul is floating out on the windswept ground

    I Never Forgive
    https://i.imgur.com/mryy4ZX.png

    The winter nights are loneliner now
    Since they took my love away
    I stll remeember how they screamed
    When they dragged away into the endless darek

    I lost my best friend that I ever had
    She will never return and it makes me so sad
    THe memory of her still lingers clear
    And in my mind she'll always be near

    They lied to me and they cheated me, oh God
    I'll never forgive them for what they done

    You bastard!

    They said that she had gone away
    And why they said that, they don't want to say
    But I know that someday near
    She will return without fear

    They lied to me and they cheated me, oh God
    I'll never forgive them for what they done

    You bastards!

    And i'm still waiting here
    I'm standing strong all alone

    They lied to me and they cheated me, oh God
    I'll never forgive them for what they done

    You bastards!

    Queen of the Dark
    https://i.imgur.com/sG8NnaZ.png

    A woman in white with two burning eyes
    Raven black hair and face like a dream
    She is the night and all within
    The night is filled with sin

    Lady of the night
    She is my queen of the dark

    Come to her castle you innocent souls
    Some good enterntainment she has planned
    Come to her cellars and she will unfold
    SHe rules the kingdom of Death

    Lady of the night
    She is my queen of the dark

    Broken souls in dirty dungeons cries
    Didn't give her love and heat
    Beggin' for mercy they'll never get
    Her laugh is freezing the blood

    Lady of the night
    She is my queen of the dark

    Queen of the dark

    Loosin' My Mind
    https://i.imgur.com/On7wBzK.png

    Out there he's looking for something
    Never to be found
    He's there he ain't gonna scare me
    That soul don't make a sound
    Red eyes look at me
    I feel the teeth inside
    Damn you, you ain't gonna get me
    I think i'm loosing my pride

    Think I loose my control to him
    But he ain't gonna scare me
    I'm loosing my mind

    Now they're here and I can feel it
    A strange feeling inside
    My head seems to break out
    I'm running out of time
    Turn around, start to running
    Try to get away
    No chance, you got no choice
    My head is spinning round

    Think I loose my control to him
    But he ain't gonna scare me
    I'm loosing my mind

    I'm loosing my mind

    Now i'm here behind the gates
    Behind the reals of death
    I can hear them laughing at me, HA!
    I feel the flames get higher and higher
    I see the people full of pain
    They scream for mercy
    But you don't know them at the page
    And he turned of it

    Now I lost my control to him
    But he ain't gonna scare me

    I'm loosing my mind

    Still Alive
    https://i.imgur.com/FTZ4u1H.png

    Who is that girl that nobody knows?
    What's her secret power?
    Coming from the sea in the night
    What has she discovered?

    The first time she died was in 1666
    She was buried alive on the witchyard
    The priests thought they had survived
    But they knew that it was only for a while
    She's still alive

    She's hanged - but still alive
    I will not die!
    Was the last words she said
    When she was thrown in the witchpond
    She will return said the restless crowd
    When she was burned on the witchstake
    She's still alive

    She's hanged - but still alive

    On the third day when the full moon rise
    She will return again
    And she will not leave until she's sacrificed
    To her and her friends

    She's hanged - but still alive
    She's hanged - but still alive
    Yet still alive
