And now 2013 brings us to “serpents unleashed,” the group’s fifth and latest release. Recorded with kurt ballou (converge, high on fire, isis) in salem, mass. The album – which features artwork by john baizley (baroness, kylesa, kvelertak), who returns to the fold for the first time in six years – is another blistering helping of two-and-a-half minute blasts of blackened metal amalgamation. This time around, the band also shows off a few new tricks – note the scandinavian doom-vibe in the opening of “unending, everliving” and the devil’s swing of “this evil embrace” – but does so without compromising the frosty/fiery/abominable metal spirit or blue-collar humility that has endeared them to so many over the past decade. Ultimately, it’s both a fitting testament to what they’ve accomplished to date, and an exciting nod toward what the future has in store. Serpents unleashed is the irrefutable proof that skeletonwitch is the kind of band that we can trust even with our eyes closed. The only thing is that the bands chose to prove that with their best record to date. Shit, this is good and… it’s really fun! 8/10 – Ghost cult magazine on ‘serpents unleashed’, skeletonwitch push the entirety of the genre ten leaps forward with a coalescing of sound and inspiration, and with close attention to the details of what creates impact today, tomorrow and for years to come. 9/10 – Terrorizer
