Heads up! Skeletonwitch & Russian Circles full-album streams.
Skeletonwitch & Russian Circles, two awesome metal bands from opposite ends of the sonic spectrum, with new albums dropping next week - streaming in-full now on Pitchfork Advance.
Skeletonwitch: Serpents Unleashed - blackened thrash from Athens, Ohio, with scene titans Kurt Ballou and John Baizley together again on production and album artwork, respectively. Not for the faint of heart. Just in time for Halloween - this one's a killer.
Russian Circles: Memorial - epic post-metal (soundtrack-y instrumentals) from Chicago with crisp, spacious production by Brandon Curtis (frontman of the underrated prog/space-rock band Secret Machines). Loving that classy album art too.
