Skeletonwitch: The Infernal Resurrection

The metal band Skeletonwitch, who'd received a good amount of thumbs-up press in 2011 for their album Forever Abomination, released a video for the song "The Infernal Resurrection."  Appropriately, as the video features live footage, Skeletonwitch began the US leg of their tour last Friday, March 23rd.  Enjoy the video and check out the info which comes to you courtesy of Earsplit PR.  The video comes courtesy of Metal Injection.

SKELETONWITCH: New Video Premiere Brought To You By Metal Injection

US Tour Kicks Off Today; European Dates Announced

Today Ohio metal titans SKELETONWITCH unveil their brand new video for “The Infernal Resurrection.” The song comes off latest album, Forever Abomination which cracked the Billboard Top 200, as well as Decibel's Top 40 of 2011 and finds the band doing what they do best: slaying ears in the live arena. To view the video, head over to THIS LOCATION.

Like Satan himself set loose in the hallowed halls of heavy metal, these Athens-based headbangers 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. Released last October through Prosthetic Records,
Forever Abomination continues to raise eyebrows with its relentless, fuck-all attack. In an 8/10 rating of the record, Decibel Magazine named SKELETONWITCH, “one of the most likeable bands in metal,” Terrorizer dubbed Forever Abomination a “masterclass in modern metal,” Revolver noted its “bad-ass thrash attack,” while Pitchfork championed the offering calling it “exciting, skilled, fist-pumping, true-to-life stuff…”

SKELETONWITCH return to the road today beginning with a warm-up show in Cleveland before joining forces with The Black Dahlia Murder, Nile and labelmates Hour Of Penance for a four-week tour that concludes at the New England Metal And Hardcore Festival.
