SKELETONWITCH ‘Beyond The Permafrost’ Picture Disc LPs Due Nov 24


SKELETONWITCH will release the final installment of their 2014 picture disc reissues on Nov. 24, when their groundbreaking, critically-acclaimed 2007 sophomore release “Beyond The Permafrost” will be available at select  retailers. Featuring sensational artwork by John Baizley (Kvelertak, Baroness), the picture disc is limited to 500 copies worldwide, 150 of which are now available for pre-order via the Prosthetic webshop for just $19.99!

Proclaimed as a “metal-as-hell attack” combining “classic thrash with a bit of melodic death and black metal, and a NWOBHM undercurrent” (Blabbermouth), “Beyond the Permafrost” was produced by late GWAR guitarist Cory Smoot and features 12 pulverizing tracks filled with “old-school, turbo-charged rock solos and instantly memorable riffs” (Decibel). The album, a favorite amongst fans and critics alike, saw the road warriors tour alongside the likes of Danzig, Dimmu Borgir, Hate Eternal, Toxic Holocaust, Municipal Waste, GWAR, Amon Amarth and more, proving that the quintet was a force to be reckoned with.

“Beyond The Permafrost” Track Listing:

Upon Wings of Black

Baptized in Flames
Sacrifice for the Slaughtergod
Vengeance Will Be Mine
Limb From Limb
