My 100 Favorite Metal Bands Pt. 88: Skeletonwitch

They have not been around for a real long time, but Skeletonwitch has made a big impression on me. They get thrown into the thrash revival scene a lot, but that does not really make that much sense to me. First of all, they are not really a true thrash metal band. They have a lot of black metal influences, talking first wave black metal here. Secondly, they are a lot better than the Warbringer/Evile/Merciless Death groups. Skeletonwitch has a knack for great, catchy songs with great riffs and interesting solos. I am eager to see this band continue to grow.



  1. They also put on a hell of a live show, which I find often goes a long way toward forming my opinion toward bands.

  2. I couldn't care less about live shows myself, but these guys are definitely kick-ass. They are working on a new one (studio report is in the latest Decibel) and I can't wait.

    As I've said before, I'm not a big fan of thrash, but blackened thrash will do it for me every time.

  3. Blackened thrash can certainly be amazing.
