Skeletonwitch Select Winning Video in Blackstar ID:15 Contest

Skeletonwitch Select Winning Video in Blackstar ID:15 Contest

Last month, Skeletonwitch teamed up with Blackstar Amplification to host a video contest.

The prize? A new Blackstar ID:15 guitar amp signed by the band!

To enter, contestants were required to watch an exclusive video in which Skeletonwitch guitarist Nate Garnette played a riff from "I Am Of Death," a track from the band's new album, Serpents Unleashed, which was released October 29 by Prosthetic Records.

Next, contestants needed to create their own video response where they play the same riff on their own amp — and tell the band why having the Blackstar ID:15 amp would make the riff sound better.

Well, the contest ended October 29 — and the band have chosen a winner!

Below, you can see the winning video by guitarist Mitchell Botting of Kalamazoo, Michigan. Congratulations to Mitchell — enjoy the new amp!
