Like many a metal fan, I thought flagship Prosthetic Records band Skeletonwitch were goners after Chance Garnette was out. There were some big shoes to fill, but the band smartly soldiered on and have been rewarded for their metal pluck with the addition of great fit Adam Clemans from one of my very favorite modern black metal bands Wolvhammer. So I was def gonna give them a …um, chance (awkward). But yeah, Adam has one of my favorite growls and it suits the somewhat more blackened direction the group seems to be heading on new EP The Apothic Gloom. Check out the seven-minute “Red Death, White Light,” which is now available for instant download along with any digital pre-order of The Apothic Gloom. The Kevin Bernstein produced track crackles and seethes, retaining attention with ease despite being on the longer side.
