METAL YOU NEED

 

 

Crunching riffs, kick drums, punk-thrash riffs and a snarling growl of a vocal, all melded together in a hot steaming mosh. If that sounds like where you like to be then Skeletonwitch’s new album (their fourth) is one you will want to hear.  

 


With four albums in ten years, Skeletonwitch may not be the most prolific of bands, but this one is perhaps the album that fans have been waiting for capturing as it does the sound of the band in full flight live.  Not that it was recorded live of course – merely that the production captures that real spark of their legendary live performances.

 


On a very solid album look towards ‘Beneath Dead Leaves’; ‘Unending, Everliving’ and ‘This Evil Embrace’ as the magic three; though in truth there’s little between these and a very solid pack of songs. If you love it hard and heavy and can’t get enough Metal and haven’t heard these guys before you really need to give this a listen.
