    Gothenburg post-punk outfit Makthaverskan is gearing up to release a new 7-inch in March. The follow-up to the band’s 2014 album, ii, is previewed today with the A-side track “Witness”.

    At once brutal and bewitching, “Witness” is led by frontwoman Maja Milner’s hellish shrieks. “My enemy, I bury you,” she proclaims so intently, as biting riffs ring out and rain down around her like shattered glass. Here, the Swedes easily do justice to their mighty name, which roughy translates into “the woman with power.” Listen in below.

    Makthaverskan’s forthcoming 7-inch arrives digitally on March 3rd via Luxury and physically on April 18th (Record Store Day) through Run For Cover. It will also be available on the group’s upcoming US tour, whose dates can be found below.
