Memento: A Spellbinding Set List From Bewitcher

Bewitcher’s frontman, Unholy Weaver of Shadows & Incantations

Bewitcher, Portland’s most scintillating speed-metal band since Toxic Holocaust, blew the garage doors off the Shredder in Boise once again on Friday night. It was an exhilarating set played by the band that played the same venue with Nile in mid-April, and with Exhumed and Creeping Death in November 2021.

The 50-or-so attendees danced and rubbed knocked elbows during each song, before and after which Bewitcher’s gracious frontman — who goes by the tough-to-memorize moniker Unholy Weaver of Shadows & Incantations — frequently expressed his appreciation for the crowd.

The band’s affinity for Boise dates back to at least October 2018, when they published this colorfully worded Instagram post:

It continued Friday night, when they cast a spell that had about 100 feet unable to remain still for the duration of their set. Speaking of which, here is a copy of it:

Thanks to Bewitcher’s amicable bassist, Infernal Magus of Nocturnal Alchemy, for giving the Bad Penny the only copy of their set list that they had to spare. Don’t worry, Mags, we’ll keep it locked in a safe place!
