The Offering webzine conducted an interview with guitarist Scott Hendrick of Ohio’s SKELETONWITCH on November 8 at Mojoe’s in Joliet, Illinois. You can now watch the chat below.
SKELETONWITCH has just completed the “U.S. Abomination” headlining tour with support from MUTILATION RITES and HAVOK.
SKELETONWITCH‘s latest album, “Forever Abomination”, was released last year via Prosthetic Records. The follow-up to 2009’s “Breathing The Fire” was recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, MACHINE HEAD, KREATOR). The effort includes the track “The Infernal Resurrection”, the demo version of which appears as the B-side on the final seven-inch of a limited-edition vinyl trilogy. This marked SKELETONWITCH‘s first recording with the group’s new drummer, former DEMIRICOUS skin-pounder Dustin Boltjes.
The vinyl reissues of the SKELETONWITCH‘s breakthrough releases “Breathing The Fire” and “Beyond The Permafrost” are now available from the Prosthetic store. Both are available in three variants — splatter, half-and-half and 180-gram black wax — and feature gatefold Stoughton “tip-on” record jackets. The black vinyl versions of both albums were made available in select retail stores in April.
