Toronto-based heavy metal high-flyers Skull Fist today unleash “Long Live the Fist”, the first single from their upcoming new full-length, “Paid in Full”, set for release on April 22nd, 2022, via Atomic Fire Records.
The Fist is the law! Skull Fist delivers more balls and ambition than is legally allowed. Since their steely inception back in 2006, dungeon keeper Zach Schottler and his shredding band of reckless companions have released three classic heavy metal almanacs, have eaten more dust than is good for their health, have endured various hardships and propped up countless beers at countless bars in countless cities. But now, after fifteen years of metal and mayhem, Schottler is coming into his own with the proverbially titled “Paid in Full” album, a heavy metal wonder of the defiant middle finger variant. With heads held high, empty pockets, and enough gas to make the next show, Skull Fist has won 2022. Don’t mess with the Fist.
Comments Schottler: “I’m stoked on this new record. We worked a lot harder on this one than the last one and I think the tracks have some of the spark shit that ‘Chasing the Dream’  and ‘Head of the Pack’  had. I am obviously biased so well wait and see what all of you think. I’m interested to see that”.

Written at home and recorded at Vespa Studios near Toronto with album cover art by Sharon Ehman, “Paid in Full” encompasses Schottler’s sonic efforts of the past two years: tales of steel and legends from the underworld…
