Skeletonwitch Get Manly
By now, anyone with a pair of eyes and at least one functioning eardrum can tell that Skeletonwitch‘s molten black thrash attack is definitely not for the faint of heart or short of hair. Razor-sharp riffs, machine gun blasting, sepulchral vocals and the nastiest guitar duels since Bonded by Blood make short work of wimps, posers, and the otherwise unworthy. The men of the ‘Witch, in the words of illustrious shredder Scott “Scunty D” Hedrik, “have never been pussies,” and gleefully prove that fact both live and in their bloodsoaked new music video.
Fresh off the road with Amon Amarth, Goatwhore, and Lazarus A.D., Mr. Hedrik was gracious enough to allow himself to be interrogated in the name of Noisecreep, and shed some light on just how “unpussy” these dudes really are.
You recently debuted a brand-new music video for “Sacrifice for the Slaughtergod” from your much-loved Prosthetic debut, ‘Beyond the Permafrost.’ What can you tell me about the video – filming, concept, all that jazz?
Cow guts are heavy and they stink. Weapons, beers and skulls rule. Nate caught a baby bass while we were shooting.
