Skeletonwitch Beyond The Permafrost on Limited Edition LP
Beyond The Permafrost is the second studio effort and debut release for Prosthetic Records from the acclaimed Ohio metal quintet Skeletonwitch. The Witch's mighty sonic fortress is an amalgamation of classic Bay Area thrash, Scandinavian death/black metal and NWOBHM. The band brings together the old and sacred elements of true heavy metal here, melts them down, and forges them into a brand new monolith of riffage.
The Cory Smoot (Municipal Waste, GWAR) produced Beyond The Permafrost received numerous accolades in the United States and overseas upon its original 2007 release and landed on many year-end 'Best Of' lists including Revolver, Decibel and Pitchfork. Tracks like opener "Upon Wings of Black," the title cut and "Fire from the Sky" are pumping with sinister themes, shredding guitars and blood curdling screams.
