The Skinny: Witches Mark have uploaded rehearsal footage of the band performing “Swarm” with Texas metal legend and South Texas Walk of Fame alumni Jason McMaster (Dangerous Toys, Broken Teeth, Watchtower, Ignitor) who also guests on the studio version of “Swarm” as featured on the band’s upcoming Witching Metal Ritual full length. The footage has been posted at this location.

This footage comes hot on the heels of the recently released “Bringers Of Heavy Metal Death” the first studio track uploaded from the soon to be released Witching Metal Ritual, due out this Fall/Winter through Heaven and Hell Records. Stream it below!

Witching Metal Ritual incorporates a “heavier, darker, more sinister musical direction” while retaining the ghastly melodies the band is known for. Following up the band’s 2009 EP A Grim Apparition the upcoming album features guest appearances by a “who’s who” of traditional heavy metal including Ross “The Boss” Friedman (Manowar, The Dictators) Jack Starr (Virgin Steele, Burning Starr) Jason McMaster (Dangerous Toys, Broken Teeth, Watchtower, Ignitor) and Martin Debourge (Damien Thorne, Head Transfer Process).
