"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." Their latest slab of savage, molten metal, Forever Abomination, is a testament to their refined craft, honed through years of hard work and relentless touring.

"We live and breathe this shit!" exclaims Hedrick. "We tour as much as humanly possible, and when we're home we write.

There's technically no such thing as 'time off' when you're in The 'WITCH". On Forever Abomination, SKELETONWITCH's unique blend of metal was given a kick in the ass by Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed), who produced and recorded the album.

The group's carefully crafted tunes and technical mastery are brought to the forefront by Hyde's monolithic production.

Main songsmith and epic riff-merchant, Nathan Garnette, has carved out the most unique batch of SKELETONWITCH tunes to date, while vocalist Chance Garnette has outdone himself again, sounding like he was barely able to contain his inner demons long enough to track the vocals.

Bassist Evan Linger plays like a possessed Steve Harris. Guitarist Scott Hedrick's lead work displays musicality and feeling rarely seen in extreme metal, and all of this is enhanced by SKELETONWITCH's newest addition, drummer Dustin Boltjes.

"Dustin is a fucking animal!" says Hedrick. "He stepped up to the plate and took these songs to another level with his relentless style of playing." And at the end of the day, it's all about the songs.

Each track on Forever Abomination has its own unique identity and ability to stand alone.

"Everyone stepped up on this album and really pushed themselves. We've created something much larger than the sum of its parts.

We've never been more proud of our work, and that's how it should be. We wouldn't release Forever Abomination if we didn't feel that way," says Hedrick.
