SKELETONWITCH To Release Limited Edition Serpents Unleashed LP – Proceeds To Aid Animal Shelters

SKELETONWITCH will release a hand-screened, 180-gram limited vinyl edition of their acclaimed, Billboard-charting 2013 release, Serpents Unleashed, of which 100% of the proceeds will be donated to two animal shelters in the band’s home state of Ohio — The Athens County Humane Society and Columbus’ Pets Without Parents. The members of Ohio’s most-loved heavy metal group have always been proud pet owners and are excited to raise awareness and support for two no-kill organizations in their region.

Limited to a one-time-only pressing of 100 copies, the black LP includes a hand-screened, hand-numbered jacket with exclusive artwork and a hand-screened dust sleeve. It comes with a color poster and a sticker showcasing the album’s original masterful artwork by John Baizley (Baroness, Kylesa, Kvelertak), as well as a download card. Mark your calendars, as the limited-edition LPs will go on sale on a first-come, first-serve basis exclusively via on Monday, January 20th at 1:00pm EST.

Praised for being their most potent album to date, Serpents Unleashed appeared on countless year-end “best-of” lists (Decibel, Metal Injection, etc.) due to its “relentlessly intense, in-your-face brutality” (Metal Assault). After touring North America extensively in the fall with The Black Dahlia Murder in addition to performing a select number of shows alongside Ghost B.C., SKELETONWITCH will continue to support the release, joining Amon Amarth and Enslaved on a US run that starts this Friday in Las Vegas. Soon after, the group will make their way to Australia for the first time to tour alongside Toxic Holocaust. The band’s complete tour schedule can be found below.

SADGIQACEA: Invisible Oranges Now Playing Entire Debut LP

Philadelphia’s genre-morphing duo SADGIQACEA today celebrates the official North American release of their debut album, False Prism. Recorded by Chris Grigg (Woe), the sprawling forty-minute album projects the organic, monstrous tones and unified, distinctive style which has helped the two-piece act become one of Philly’s hottest live acts over the past two years. The recordfeatures virtually no overdubs or studio trickery, the band wishing to preserve the authentic recording quality of their live performances.


In coordination with the street date of False Prism, the diehards at Invisible Oranges/Brooklyn Vegan are streaming the entire album, RIGHT HERE


Formed in 2010, SADGIQACEA (pronounced sad-juh-kay-sha) forges a diverse sonic palette that has been likened at times to Neurosis, Intronaut, Hull, The Atlas Moth, Weakling, and Kylesa. Musically and artistically, the band draws from a melting pot of influences that together presents a lush yet tension-filled sound. The band calls it, “music for our trodden minds and sodden souls.” In a continuing effort to bring their craft to public forums, the band is finalizing the details for a bulky tour set to take place through most of July and well into August, joined by local cohorts Hivelords. The full tour routing will be announced in the coming days.


“In order to properly hone that organic process, producer (and Woe mastermind) Chris Grigg captured the exquisite bedlam of False Prism in alive recording scenario’ with minimal overdubs and no studio trickery.” – Decibel


“…False Prism, their excellent full-length debut due May 7 on Candlelight, indicates that a limited membership doesn’t entail diminished ideas or abilities. They bridge thrash and doom, black metal and drone, field recordings and power metal into often-seamless long-form pieces.” – Pitchfork


“The Philadelphia two-piece’s epic sludge-doom sprinkles in moments of post-rock, Neurosis-y riffage and black metal across their four-track effort…” – Invisible Oranges


“Their song structures are smooth and varied, progressive in scope, and the record’s unsettling psychedelia is very engaging, adding a wanton mystery to their barrage of riffs.” –
