Produced by Grammy-winner Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed), the album is now available for pre-order at www.ForeverAbomination.com, where a new song (“The Infernal Resurrection”) is currently streaming and the album’s artwork by Andrei Bouzikov (Municipal Waste, Holy Grail, Cannabis Corpse) — who also contributed the cover art for the band’s 2009 release, Breathing The Fire — has been unveiled.
Forever Abomination will be released internationally on the following dates:
Mainland Europe: October 7
United Kingdom: October 10

The album — Skeletonwitch’s first with new drummer Dustin Boltjes (Demiricous) — will be issued in three formats: digital download; a six-panel, plastic-free digipak; and a triple-gatefold LP (which in turn will be available in several color variants).
