WITCHES BREW is an underground record label based out of Germany. The name was inspired by the MANILLA ROAD song 'Witches Brew'. Previous to starting the label I ran an online zine called The Metal Gospel. It was through the zine that I was exposed to some really cool demos from unsigned bands which got me thinking: "I would sign these guys if I had my own label !". I made it a reality in early 2002.
