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.”
Indeed. Like Satan himself set loose in the hallowed halls of heavy metal, these Athens, Ohio-based head-bangers careen wildly through the music’s history, gleefully destroying and setting flame to every genre along the way, only stopping at the forefront of today’s metal scene to look back and watch that fucker burn — and then piss on the flames. No other band has tapped into the fire, fury, and frost of all things metal like Skeletonwitch.

Skeletonwitch’s vicious live show and fierce blue-collar work ethic have garnered them a dedicated fan base, including some of the genre’s biggest names such as Rob Halford, Phil Anselmo, Bill Ward and Robb Flynn, to name a few. They were also handpicked by Glenn Danzig for his 2008 Blackest of the Black tour, and have also logged countless miles on the road in the U.S., Canada and Europe with the likes of Amon Amarth, Dimmu Borgir, Cannibal Corpse, Children of Bodom, High on Fire and The Black Dahlia Murder. The band has also made high-profile appearances at several festivals, including the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in 2008, 2010 and 2011, the 2010 Scion Rock Fest in Atlanta (along with Mastodon, High on Fire, etc.), South By Southwest, Ozzfest, Wacken, Summer Breeze and more.
Skeletonwitch formed in 2003 and self-released their debut full-length, At One With the Shadows, the following year. In 2006, after several underground tours, the band broke through musically with the self-released EP Worship the Witch (which included a limited, handmade edition by Baroness’ John Baizley). Worship the Witch peaked label interest, and in 2007, the band signed with Prosthetic Records and released Beyond the Permafrost, which received numerous accolades in the U.S. and overseas and landed on many year-end “Best Of” lists including Revolver, Decibel, and Pitchfork. The album also cracked the Top 10 of the CMJ Loud Rock Chart. Their follow up full-length Breathing the Fire, released in 2009 and produced by Jack Endino (Soundgarden, Nirvana), landed at #151 on the Billboard Top 200, received glowing reviews throughout the metal community and landed on numerous “Best Of” lists.

Skeletonwitch was featured on an Adult Swim video for their song “Bringers of Death” in 2010. “Bringers of Death” also appears on the Adult Swim heavy metal compilation titled Metal Swim.

In March 2011, Skeletonwitch parted ways with drummer Derrick “Mullet Chad” Nau and temporarily replaced him with Tony Laureano. Skeletonwitch’s fourth studio album, Forever Abomination, was released in 2011. It is the first album to feature Dustin Boltjes on drums, replacing Derrick Nau.

The band released its fifth studio album Serpents Unleashed on October 29, 2013.

On March 31, 2015, Skeletonwitch announced that former Cannabis Corpse vocalist Andy Horn would be replacing Garnette for their upcoming European tour. On February 10, 2016, Adam Clemens, frontman of blackened sludge metal band Wolvhammer, was announced as Skeletonwitch’s new vocalist.

The Apothic Gloom, a new, 4 song EP from Skeletonwitch, featuring Clemans on vocals, will be out on August 16…
