Skeletonwitch

With four full-length studio albums, a pair of EPs and numerous national and international tours under their belts, southeastern Ohio head-bangers, Skeletonwitch, have been making huge waves in the modern metal scene. In 2008, the band earned a support slot for Danzig’s “The Blackest of the Black” tour, their last album, Breathing The Fire, debuted at #151 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, and in 2010 they were invited to perform every date of Ozzy Osbourne’s Ozzfest tour and were featured on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. On Oct. 11, Prosthetic Records will release the quintet’s fourth studio album, Forever Abomination, showcasing the band’s technical mastery of thrash, metal and rock ‘n’ roll. Recorded in Los Angeles with producers Chris Rakestraw and Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed), Forever Abomination marks the debut of new drummer Dustin Boltjes (previously of Demiricous) and has already been called “their most blisteringly focused effort to date” by Dayton-based Ghettoblaster Magazine. Skeletonwitch will celebrate the release with a pair of regional dates, at Newport, Ky.’s Southgate House on Thursday, Oct. 13, and Columbus’ Ravari Room on Friday, Oct. 14. Check out www.foreverabomination.com for the latest on the band’s forthcoming record and www.youindie.com for an interview with lead guitarist, Scott Hedrick.
Breathing The Fire is available at Omega Records at 318 E. Fifth St. in Dayton.
