Worship the Witch EP (


Freshly transplanted from Columbus to Cleveland, Skeletonwitch delivers the fistful of metal promised by the horned skull and long hair that grace the cover of the band's second release. Chance Garnette's Cookie Monster vocals and gurgling are pure death metal, but the power-metal melodies of the quintet's twin-guitar attack put the band squarely in the realm of thrash. The quintet's vision is epic, but its songs aren't; all four cuts cram multiple movements into a mere three minutes -- any more would result in a fatal case of whiplash.
