SKELETONWITCH hit us with the second track "When Paradise Fades" from their forthcoming album, Devouring Radiant Light out July 20th on Prothesthic Records. The band's guitarist Nate Garnette calls it "a supercharged nano-epic that takes you from greasy rock n roll, to off-the-rails blackened destruction and beyond." He further explains, "I tried to keep the intensity and grit front-and-center while making it a journey instead of a two-minute banger."


While black metal has always been a recognizable component of the SKELETONWITCH DNA, Devouring Radiant Light sees the band crashing headlong into the subgenre like never before. And where SKELETONWITCH previously ran its output through a Second Wave Black Metal filter, Devouring incorporates a strong atmospheric influence. Bergtatt-era Ulver and Cascadian black metal lineage are palpable. From ethereal intros to tremolo sky-ride leads, Devouring is draped with and adorned in the musical lexicon of black metal, but the expansion of influence does not stop there.

They've succeeded where many have failed: they have reformulated their sound mid-career with dizzyingly triumphant results. Since their inception over a decade ago, SKELETONWITCH have been known for blending and bending metal subgenres. The members' collective love of Judas Priest, classic-era Metallica and Immortal has always been worn on their sleeves and remains evident. However, it's the band's blacker leanings that have shifted to the forefront and altered the tenor of the through line on this latest offering.

Devouring Radiant Light was recorded by Converge guitarist and engineering deity Kurt Ballou (High on Fire, Kvelertak, Chelsea Wolfe) at GodCity Studio in Salem, MA. The band's rapport with Ballou provided the familiarity necessary to embrace uncharted creative territory. Melodeath genre architect Fredrik Nordström (Opeth, At the Gates) mixed the album at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden. The record was mastered by Brad Boatright of metallic hardcore greats From Ashes Rise at Audiosiege Engineering in Portland, OR.

Just after a long spring North American run with Obituary and Pallbearer, SKELETONWITCH ready a European tour in support of Devouring Radiant Light this month. U.S. fall dates with System of a Down and At The Drive-In have been confirmed. Check below for a full list and stay tuned for more.

saw them at nemhf 04 or 05 i think. wasn't blown away at all but the crowd seemed to be into it. checked this tune out from the new record when it was suggested and i thought it was alright. the one posted here does nothing for me though.

They aren’t bad. I like the original singer better. I also have pics in one of their cds.
