Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Skeletonwitch has been called every name in the book: death metal, black metal, thrash metal, speed metal, heavy metal, epic viking blackened thrash 'n' roll, and so on. "It seems the only description everyone can agree on is metal," says guitarist Scott Hedrick, "and that suits us just fine." Like Satan himself set loose in the hallowed halls of heavy metal, these Athens, OH-based head bangers careen wildly through metal's history, gleefully destroying and setting flame to every sub-genre along the way. No other band has tapped into the fire, fury and frost of all things metal like Skeletonwitch. Their savage, molten metal fourth effort, Forever Abomination (2011), is a testament to their refined craft, honed through years of hard work and relentless touring. Here, Skeletonwitch's unique blend of metal was given a kick in the ass by Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed) who produced and recorded the album. The group's carefully crafted tunes and technical mastery are brought to the forefront by Hyde's monolithic production.
