The band had some very successful singles and some of their video clips were filmed in Paris. Some people in the rock industry said the Witches were way too heavy for the soft rock scene that was around in those days, but that never stopped the girls from being one of the biggest bands this country had ever seen.
The band was never officially broken up but in 1996 the girls stopped working, leaving behind them a great legacy of rock ‘n roll. But even after the breakup the lead singer Inbal was still working on new music, combining her great voice and talent with some other great artists in Israel.
In October 2, 1997 a comeback show was planned for the Witches, but it never actually happened because of Inbal Perlmuter’s sudden death in a car accident a day before the show. Despite her drug addiction, they were no signs of drugs or alcohol in her blood, according to the autopsy.
Inbal’s accident will forever be a mystery and we, her fans, will never forget her legacy and will cherish her in our hearts forever.
