SKELETONWITCH Gatefold Vinyl Reissues Coming Soon

Prosthetic Records is proud to announce they will be reissuing Breathing the Fire, and Beyond the Permafrost, their first two releases from American metal masters, SKELETONWITCH. The deluxe, limited gatefold packages or pre-order, now, at the Prosthetic Store, and will ship by the end of March, in conjunction with the band’s U.S. tour with THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, NILE, and labelmates HOUR OF PENANCE.

Pictured above is the new “Fire Splatter” edition of Breathing The Fire vinyl, one of three versions that will be available of the band’s 2009 release. See a close up of the LP, below.

The “Fire Splatter” LPs come in a new gatefold Stoughton “tip-on” jacket, and unlike the first and second pressings that sold out long ago, they come with a lyric insert so that Andrei Bouzikov‘s gatefold artwork appears unobstructed. This version is limited to 500 copies.

Breathing The Fire will also be available on heavy duty 180-gram black vinyl (also limited to 500 pieces), in addition to a very limited edition red/yellow half-and-half 2-color vinyl that will only be available EXCLUSIVELY through the Prosthetic Store.

PROSTHETIC will also be reissuing the band’s critically acclaimed 2007 break through, Beyond the Permafrost.  This marks the first time that Prosthetic will release an LP version of this burner.  It will also be available in three variants, all of which come in new gatefold Stoughton “tip-on” jackets as well: 180-gram black vinyl (approx. 500 pieces), “Permafrost splatter” (blue on white, approx. 500 pieces) and limited white/blue half-and-half 2-color wax that will be a Prosthetic Store exclusive.

The black vinyl versions of both titles will be available in select North American stores on April 10, but pre-orders will begin shipping around the third week of March.

Lastly, there are a limited amount of Forever Abomination blue marble pressing still available.  This particular release comes with two free posters. Measurements and more info can be found here.
