Skeletonwitch (US)

Skeletonwitch is a blackened thrash metal band that formed in 2003. The band formed in Athens, Ohio by Nate Garnette (Guitar), Scott Hedrick (Guitar),Chance Garnette (Vocals), Evan Linger (Bass), Derick Nau (Drums). In 2011, Derrick Nau left the band, replaced by Dustin Boltjes.

Skeletonwitch released their first album, At One with the Shadows, on August 11, 2004 with Shredded Records.

The band then released a quick fiery demo in 2004 and then released an EP Worship the Witch in 2005, both of which were self-released due to the failed Shredded Records. This lead to a lot of interest with fan and labels, with their new matured style.

After being signed to Prosthetic, Skeletonwitch released Beyond the Perm...

Mantar (DE)

February 2014 sees the two piece German monster Mantar release their debut album on Svart Records. Recorded earlier in 2013 and titled "Death By Burning", the album is a raw, self produced and 100% DIY display of power. Mantar manages to sound even and heavier than most five piece bands you may know, in spite of the fact that no bass guitar was used on this record. Just drums and guitar set for destruction. Forget about Rock `n Roll. This will hurt. Flogging beats and blackened melodies meet feedback orgies and doom mayhem. Early Melvins, Motörhead, Darkthrone. You name it. Don`t call it sludge though. Everything as black as possible. A soundtrack for the final battle.
