Skeletonwitch Sez: Bow to the SLAUGHTERGOD!

You may have heard us mention demonic thrashers Skeletonwitch from the lineup of Danzig's “Blackest of the Black” tour (along with Dimmu Borgir and Moonspell), not to mention their appearance in last weekend's Scion Rock Fest and a forthcoming stop at Austin's South By Southwest (SXSW). But just how hard do these Ohio boys bring the evil? Truth be told, pretty damn hard. But don't take our word for it... check out their sick new video after the jump!

The band has just released the killer clip “Sacrifice for the Slaughtergod" from their second album Beyond the Permafrost. Guitarist Scott “Scunty D” Hendrick fondly reminisced about the shoot on Blabbermouth: "It's good to know that Mullet Chad [aka Derrick Nau], our drummer, and I didn't spend an entire day covered in guts all for naught... we shot that thing months ago and just finally got rid of the gut-stink!"

That heady aroma came from the piles of intestines that get batted around by a cabal of horned, robed monks brandishing various sharp implements... never a bad thing for a righteous metal video. Come to think of it, those elements would enhance just about anything.
