Midwestern metal quintet, SKELETONWITCH, have released a second behind-the-scenes video documenting the recording of their highly anticipated new album, Serpents Unleashed, due to drop this October. Check it out at Invisible Oranges, HERE.
Serpents Unleashed — which ties a bow around the band’s rambunctious first decade of blackened metal — will be released in North America on October 29th, in Australia, Germany, Austria and Switzerland on October 25th and on October 28th in the UK and the rest of Europe. The album, which was recorded at GodCity Studio earlier this year with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Trap Them, High on Fire), has been hailed by Decibel as SKELETONWITCH‘s “best effort to date.” Agrees Metalholic in 9.5/10 rating: “Every song, every melody, every note just screams metal.” View a sneak peak of the band tracking “Burned From Bone” at THIS LOCATION.
Serpents Unleashed is now available for preorder on CD, audio cassette, three different 180-gram LP variants (black, clear or red) and a limited-edition seen-inch collector’s box via www.skeletonwitch.
