A while back on February 14, 2014 (Valentines day) we sat down with Scott Hendrick, one of the furiously fast shredders of the Ohio thrashers Skeletonwitch. While hopping around from Enslaved's and Amon Amarth's dressing room at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco we had time to chat about the recording process for Serpents Unleashed, The weirdest show they have ever played, and of course Kitties.
At the end of their tour with European rockers Amon Amarth and Enslaved, Skeletonwitch put down arguably the best set from an opening band. With new material from their latest album Serpents Unleashed, they took command of the stage and sent the sold out audience whirling through a cyclone of insanely fast guitars, pulsating drums and devilish growls.
Skeletonwitch will be out touring the festivals in Europe this summer but will be back in the states for their own headlining tour again in the fall. According to Scott Hendrick, they plan on taking two passes, one of the major markets, and then one of the smaller clubs. I highly recommend you checking these guys out. Not only do they play amazing metal music, but they are some of the nicest guys around.
