Prosthetic Records signs Skeletonwitch

Cleveland metal band Skeletonwitch has officially signed a deal with Prosthetic Records. Fresh off self-releasing their "Worship The Witch" EP (view Lambgoat's review here), the forthcoming Skeletonwitch release will be produced by Cory Smoot (Municipal Waste, Gwar) in June and comes on the heels of a previous full-length and an EP, in addition to persistent touring. Regarding their sound, the band declares, "Imagine a young Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Exodus slamming beers and cranking up Immortal records at a rager in 1985. Just when you think the keg is killed, Judas Priest joins the party with a fresh case of beer." The new album is expected to hit stores this fall. In the interim, you can hear some of their current material here.

Awesome band description.

spiderstorm1 2/21/2007 4:28:01 PM

shit band description my ass! the only thing close to as good of a description is "kind of like an arachnid-air-raid!", but the gays probably think that is studid too. Yes, I said it. The Gays.

spiderstorm1 2/21/2007 4:29:23 PM

uhm, yeah. stupid. studid? how the fck do you spell it?

Hellaween 2/21/2007 4:40:06 PM

Beers?!?! Good news though

yougottold 2/21/2007 4:42:55 PM

Apparently Prosthetic just signs bands when their CD's get reviewed by Lambgoat. I'd have a beer with these guys though.

forever_true 2/21/2007 5:07:23 PM

are we supposed to even care about this?

MetalBob 2/21/2007 5:08:42 PM

The deal was done before Lambgoat reviewed the record...

Omegaman 2/21/2007 5:17:17 PM

Isn't Prosthetic having money problems or something? Maybe that was an excuse.

Godfatherofsoul 2/21/2007 5:17:20 PM

Huh, LOL...?

optimus_prime 2/21/2007 5:28:08 PM

bolognapony 2/21/2007 6:27:31 PM

BruceWayne 2/22/2007 10:43:43 AM

I don't care for this band, but they work hard... so good for them.

creativename 2/22/2007 6:10:10 PM

I saw these dudes with Righteous Jams this summer and it was hillarious. They had a fog machine and the dude was screaming the song titles about lakes of fire and ice dragons. i thought the music sucked but they were hillarious.
