In 1993, Mike Geezer, Paul Evrard and Luciver Vecken laid the groundwork for a new band. As die-hard fans of heavy metal and absurd humour, they decide to name the band for the fifth episode of the first season of Blackadder: Witchsmeller Pursuivant. The band starts playing gigs as soon as the line-up is complete and rave live reviews prompt the trio to record their first demo. This first recording paves the way toward bigger venues and pretty soon the fans are roaring the lyrics to classics such as “Witchsmeller Pursuivant” and “VAIS”. In 2001, WP release their first full-length CD with ‘Enter Delirium’. A show at the Biebob in front of 300 delirious fans was definitely a high point. Their follow-up CD, ‘Manifest of Evil’, was six years in the making but the sound is still heavy metal of the noblest blood. Smell that witch!
