Born is the shadows of Athens, OH, Skeletonwitch is a blackened thrash metal band that’s part of an all too small collective of thrash revival musicians. In 2004 Skeletonwitch released their first album “At One With The Shadows” on indie-metal label Shredded. Since then the band has released four other recordings two of which are through their most recent label Prosthetic, the latest of which, “Beyond the Permafrost” was released in 2007 and showcased the bands unrelenting riffage and dedication to a thrash scene that is too often forgotten. On October 13, Skeletonwitch will be releasing their third studio album, “Breathing the Fire” on Prosthetic Records. Here is their video for Sacrifice for the Slaughtergod the fourth track on “Beyond.”
