Skeletonwitch Forever Abomination on Limited Edition LP
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 headbangers careen wildly through the music's history, gleefully destroying and setting flame to every genre along the way. No other band has tapped into the fire, fury and frost of all things metal like Skeletonwitch.
Their 2011 slab of savage, molten metal, Forever Abomination, 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.
