Anybody heard of "Kurt Ballou"? The hairy dudes in this video here keep referring to him as if he's well known or somehow important, even relevant (!) to the current music scene. Weird. He twiddles knobs, people. It's not like he's some badass guitar player or (ha!) songwriter in a legendary metallic hardcore band. Let's keep things in perspective, shall we? And has he even been behind the board for anything you can actually name? Check out Part 1 of an in-studio documentary series starring Skeletonwitch getting all gushy about the extra oomph that Ballou gave to their new album, Serpents Unleashed, due out on October 29. Give the vid a looksee, get pumped for some scathing new Skeletonwitch, and find out about Ballou's true canine identity.
