Melotov Records presents its release of Bone Dance's 2010 EP, Snakecharmers, due August 27th.

Originally self-released by the band and now long out of print, Snakecharmers finally gets its justice, thanks to Melotov. A limited run of 500, Melotov's reissue of the EP features new, iconic artwork, adorning a one-sided, color vinyl 12" (200 "smoke haze", 300 gold).

From Boise, Idaho, Bone Dance churn out what they themselves have coined "utter, desert-driven nihilism" - suffocating heaviness in the order of Botch, Coalesce, and Engineer. Sludgy riffs spiral downward, drums strike and recoil, and vocalist Morgan Mechling spits pure disgust as if preemptively delivering mankind's eulogy. The smothering weight of the wide open Western landscape is ever-present; Bone Dance is a product of its environment.

The Snakecharmers reissue comes on the heels of Melotov's release of Bone Dance's self-titled full-length in fall 2012. Cvlt Nation bestowed this review on the full-length: "Bone Dance's new LP sets the bar high for all newer bands playing chaotic metal/hardcore and is one of the must-hear metal albums of the year, period."

The Snakecharmers tracklist is as follows: 
1) Dirge
2) Devil's Arithmetic
3) Birds Singing (Wolves Licking Blood)
