Skeletonwitch have released the second of three planned 7-inchers. This one is on green vinyl and features a recently re-recorded version of 'The Skullsplitter' which is taken from the band's self-released debut album 'At One with the Shadows.'

The B-side features 'No Rest for the Dead,' which was recorded with producer Jack Endino, who has worked with Nirvana, Soundgarden and High On Fire and others.

The track was recorded during the 'Breathing the Fire' sessions and was originally used as a bonus track on the iTunes version of the album.

Only 500 copies of this single will be available.

Skeletonwitch also recently announced that they are writing the follow-up to 2009's 'Breathing the Fire.'



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
