Graywitch is a heavy metal band based in Thessaloniki, Greece. It was formed in Nicosia, Cyprus in mid-October 2018 by Greek and Cypriot heavy metal enthusiasts.

The band’s musical influences span from classic heavy to speed, power and thrash metal. Some bands that inspired Graywitch include classics Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, more hard rock stuff like Whitesnake and Motorhead, extend to power metallers Helloween, Gamma Ray, Running Wild, and even reach a more aggressive musical thrashy style.

Their lyrical themes take inspiration from folklore tales, historical events, and everyday issues dealt in life.

In Summer 2020 they hit the Infected Studios to record their debut album. The album was ready in February 2021, leading to a release deal with Sleaszy Rider Records on Jun 4th 2021.

After numerous shows locally and abroad, on 29th of December 2023, they released their first single “God of War“, the first track featuring singer George Papadopoulos. “God of War” is the forerunner of their second album “Children of Gods“, released by Sleaszy Rider on February 2nd, 2024.
