Over the past decade, SKELETONWITCH has received considerable acclaim for its trademark blackened metal, which Metal Hammer calls a potent brew of everything that makes metal so brilliant, vital and special. The groups relentless work ethic personified by a 63-concerts-in-65-days test of endurance in 2012 is second to none in the genre and has cemented their reputation as one of metals most important acts. Previous tours with the likes of Danzig, Arch Enemy, The Black Dahlia Murder, Amon Amarth, Enslaved, Children of Bodom, Cannibal Corpse and Ozzy Osbournes Ozzfest have helped to cultivate one of the genre\’s most passionate fan bases. Their most recent release, Serpents Unleashed, debuted on the Billboard 200 at #62, the highest chart position of their career. Recorded with Kurt Ballou (Converge, High on Fire), \”Serpents\” was lauded as a punchy, potent slice of blackened thrash, death metal and plain heavy metal by Decibel Magazine, which included the album in their 2013 Top 40 list. More information on the group\’s forthcoming EP will be revealed in the coming weeks.
