The title track of Serpents Unleashed, the new album from Ohio metallers Skeletonwitch, has been made available online and can now be streamed in the YouTube clip below. This is the second song the blackened thrash metal band releases from their new output and you can check out "Serpents Unleashed" right now.
Due out in North America on October 29th (October 28th Europe/UK, October 25th Germany) via Prosthetic Records, the follow-up to 2011's Forever Abomination was recorded this past spring at GodCity Studio. The cover artwork was created by John Baizley (Baroness). You can still stream "I Am Of Death (Hell Has Arrived)" over here as well.
In other recent news, Skeletonwitch will not be allowed to perform at the House of Blues in Orlando in January 2014 on the tour with Amon Amarth and Enslaved, as the group has joined the likes of Exodus, Machine Head and others who have been deemed "unfit to be associated with" Disney, on whose property the venue is located.
Although Skeletonwitch might not be welcome at the Magic Kingdom, a California couple has asked the band to make their dreams come true. During the band's live performance in Fresno on November 15th, local fans Travis Bartlett and Lanae Forrest will get married on stage - making local venue Strummer's their own happiest place on Earth.
Says groom-to-be Bartlett: "Lanae and I are taken aback and beyond elated that Skeletonwitch are willing to be a part of the most important day of our lives. There really aren't words to show our appreciation for the band being with us as we begin our lives together."
Skeletonwitch making your dreams come true since 2003.
I believe I was at the HOB at Disney in Anaheim when Machine Head played their last show there... epic and when all the angry/smelly metalheads march through the "happiest place on Earth" to get to the HOB it is a hilarious contrast.
