SKELETONWITCH: ‘Unfit’ For Disney, But Fit For A Wedding

Fresh off a short run of dates supporting Ghost B.C., the Athens, Ohio-based blackened metal quintet SKELETONWITCH has announced a hometown release party for their highly anticipated new album, “Serpents Unleashed,” which will take place on the eve of the kickoff to their extensive North American fall tour with The Black Dahlia Murder. Tickets for the event — which will take place at The Union (18 W. Union St., Athens) on Oct. 23 — are just $10.

The Black Dahlia tour will be quickly followed by another lap around America in early 2014, this time alongside Amon Amarth and Enslaved. Unfortunately for fans in Orlando — where the tour stops on Jan. 27 — SKELETONWITCH will not be allowed to perform at the local House of Blues, 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 Nov. 15, 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.”

Commemorating the group’s 10-year anniversary, “Serpents Unleashed” — recorded earlier this year with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Isis, High on Fire), and featuring artwork by John Baizley (Baroness, Kylesa, Kvelertak) — will be released in North America on Oct. 29, in Australia and G/A/S on Oct. 25 and in the UK/EU on Oct. 28. Pre-order packages are currently available in a variety of physical formats at www.skeletonwitch.com, while digital pre-orders — which offer an instant download of new song “I Am Of Death (Hell Has Arrived)” — are available now on both iTunes and Bandcamp.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Announce Headlining Tour

The Black Dahlia Murder will be embarking on a headlining tour across North American this Fall. Joining them for this particular run are SkeletonwitchFallujahNoisem (10/24-11/19), and Wolvhammer (11/20-11/27). The tour will begin on October 24th in Cleveland, OH and ends on November 27th in Flint, MI. The confirmed list of shows is below, and on the band’s facebook page: facebook.com/theblackdahliamurderofficial.


The Black Dahlia Murder just returned home from a long summer on tour as part of the Van’s Warped Tour. At the Ventura, CA stop of the tour, Brian Eschbach, Ryan Knight, Max Lavelle, and Alan Cassidy, recorded their parts for “Into the Everblack” from the band’s new album,“Everblack.” The performance is streaming now at metalblade.com/bdm. Additionally, videos for each individual performance have been posted at youtube.com/blackdahliamurdertv.

Everblack,” the band’s new album, debuted at #32 on the Billboard Top 200, #3 on the Billboard Current Hard Music Albums chart (behind Black Sabbath and Queens of the Stone Age). Additional chart debuts include #3 on the Billboard Hard Music Albums, #9 on the Billboard Independent Albums, and #30 on the Hits Albums Chart. Additionally, the album peaked at #15 on the iTunes album chart, and #2 on the iTunes Metal chart, second only to living legends Black Sabbath.

The Black Dahlia Murder’s new music video for “Goat of Departure” was also recently made available, and be seen on youtube HERE.

Request TBDM on The Welding Room! Tweet #DeathThreatsComplaints to @TheWeldingRoom or join the http://www.rockdefradio.com live chat during the program.

The video, directed by Ben Mayer, was filmed in the band’s hometown of Detroit, MI last month. In typical TBDM fashion, it is over-the-top and even features the return of a classic TBDM character, and a real, live goat.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Release Performanc​e Demo Video

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER are currently touring as part of the Van’s Warped Tour 2013. At the Ventura, CA stop of the tour, Brian Eschbach, Ryan Knight, Max Lavelle, and Alan Cassidy, recorded their parts for Into the Everblack from the band’s new album, Everblack. The performance is streaming now at metalblade.com/bdm. Videos for each individual performance are posted at youtube.com/blackdahliamurdertv.

 Audio Hammer producer Mark Lewis comments specifically on Knight’s leads on Everblack:

“Ryan Knight’s leads on Everblack are nothing short of phenomenal. I grew up listening to the best in the era of shred, and I can honestly say these solos rank up there with the best, and beyond. They are not just technical solos in the athletic, ‘look how fast I can play’ sense, there is truly amazing harmonic content going in these leads. Any educated player will realize that the chord changes he is playing over are far more complex than anything you typically find in metal. Mix all that with absolutely world class tone and vibrato, and you really have an amazing piece of work. It does not get better than this.”

Watch THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER’s new music video for Goat of Departure HERE. The video was directed by Ben Mayer and filmed in the band’s hometown of Detroit, MI last month. In typical TBDM fashion, it is over-the-top and even features the return of a classic TBDM character, and a real, live goat.

DEVILDRIVER Release Additional Album Info

DEVILDRIVER will be releasing their new studio album, Winter Kills in Japan on August 28 via Metal Blade Japan/Howling Bull Entertainment. The band recorded in Florida at Audio Hammer Studios and vocals in Los Angeles, CA at Dez’s home studio with Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, All That Remains) handling production duties.

Winter Kills set for August 28 release date in Japan

DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez FaFara comments;

“I am thrilled to be in business with Brian Slagel and his Metal Blade team in Japan. To be associated with a person and company as respected, successful, and passionate as they are compliment my work ethic and passion to a tee. Sometimes it’s about the company you keep and DevilDriver could not be in better company in Japan.

Hail Dez”

The artwork for Winter Kills features a photograph by Dean Karr with the layout handled by Ryan Clark/Invisible Creature.

DEVILDRIVER worked with Lewis previously on Beast and The Last Kind Words and producer Mark Lewis’s prolific leadership of the new school of metal has yet again helped DEVILDRIVER deliver another Epic heavy Metal record. This record melds what the band does best. In your face power as well as the California Groove sound the band pioneered.

“This is by far DEVILDRIVER’s most cohesive, powerful, groove laden record to date! We delivered our signature California Groove sound alongside a Raw and Biting guitar tone, mixed it with massive hooks, added in thunderous drums to rethink, and reshape another different sounding unique piece of Rock-N-Roll! Cutting our own path is something to be proud of. DEVILDRIVER has always and will forever be about thinking outside the box and delivering on something different from record to record, we cannot be assimilated into any scene or even genre of Metal and we will continue to do things our own way with a massive middle finger in the air to the status quo!”

Hail RockNRoll

Dez FaFara

DEVILDRIVER has always been a band on a three-pronged mission: Work hard, rock harder, and kick as many asses as possible in the process. The band tours forever and has since its beginnings. Their live performances and circle pits are as legendary as their music.

The band will be hitting the road worldwide in support of Winter Kills. Touring as always will be a focal point for the band. The US can expect to see them this fall and winter with Europe and the rest of the globe coming in 2014 and beyond.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Full Album Preview, Song Descriptio​ns

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER already released three songs from Everblack; request to hear any track from the album on The Welding Room now!  Along with audio previews, fans can read descriptions of each song from one of metal’s finest storytellers, Trevor Strnad. To listen and read Strnad’s thoughts, visit DecibelMagazine.com now.

The Black Dahlia Murder’s sixth full-length album, Everblack, will be released on June 11 in North America and on June 7/10 in Europe. The cover art for Everblack was painted by renowned artist Nick Keller with Weta, whose recent projects include: The Hobbit, Avatar, Chronicles of Narnia, and more. Recording was completed at Audiohammer Studios (lead guitars and vocals), Rustbelt Studios (drums), and Regal Fecal (guitar and bass). Mixing was handled by Jason Suecof and Ryan Williams, mastering was completed by Alan Douches at West Westside. Trevor Strnad’s horror-inspired lyrics persist on Everblack, beginning with In Hell is Where She Waits for Me, a reference to the murder from which the band took for their moniker.

Fans can stream Into the Everblack now at metalblade.com/bdm. Also, there are a variety of limited edition pre-order bundles. Fans can grab Everblack on a double gatefold LP with purple/white marbled vinyl, along with “crime scene bundles.” An evidence pack, which includes toe tags, deceased band member photos, spent shotgun shells, and more can be viewed now.
