Melodic / Thrash / Black / USA
American black metal has its own distinctive sound, but this five-piece act from Athens, Ohio completely falls out of context. SKELETONWITCH takes the black metal aesthetics and their southern energy and turns them into neat and solid but still rather dirty compositions. The end result is a dynamic and melodic fusion of thrash, black, and death metal.
During fifteen years SKELETONWITCH has produced five studio albums which have won sympathies all over the world. The band members are huge music lovers themselves, so they seek that every note and every song would sound different, unique, and exciting not only to the crowd but for them too. As Scott Hedrick, the band’s frontman says, “I love me some extreme death metal. I also love pizza and I don’t want to eat it for every single meal. You know?”
