The above video for “Year Of The Snake” is my selling point. Nasty riffs and spinning mics. Step into my office for the deal of the week for Chimaira’s “Serpent” shirt. A cool $5.99. “The Age Of Hell” drops Tuesday so snag one of these shirts before the album pummels you into another dimension.

Happy Thursday mutants! Mega update from three super righteous bands:

Mark Hunter of Chimaira recently sat down with Noisecreep to discuss the new album and the line up changes the band has recently dealt with. Check it out below:
Read the full interview here.

The band also recently played a hometown show in Cleveland where they unveiled a new song that sounds like a shredder:

Be sure to check out the brand new Chimaira official merch store.

Our friends at theprp.com dropped this info about everyones favorite Athens, Ohio metalheads:”Skeletonwitch entered a Los Angeles, CA area studio today to begin tracking their as-yet untitled new album with producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Machine Head) at the helm. The effort will mark the debut of ex-Demiricous drummer Dustin Boltjes, who has now officially been welcomed into the band.

Speaking on the outing and Boltjes, band guitarist Scott Hedrick had the following to offer:

‘Waiting fucking sucks! So, after months of writing, it’s great to finally be in the studio tracking the new album. It’s not rocket science…it’s epic, it’s brutal, it’s fucking Skeletonwitch! We can’t wait for everyone to hear it. We’d also like to officially welcome aboard our newest member Dustin Boltjes. He’s a great fucking dude and an animal behind the kit. We couldn’t have found a better fit. Welcome aboard, brother!’

In addition to the following spate of overseas touring this summer, the band will be hitting the road this fall alongside DevilDriver, Chthonic and one more band TBA. Further details on that trek are expected next week.”
