Borderline black metal with blast-beats, raspy screams and progressive textures
It has been five years since the band's last release and about seven to eight since I've really paid attention. The Ohio band have consistently changed their formula, moving from the retro thrash movement to this, an atmospheric and chilling Scandinavian sound. Rooted in the early 90s, 'Devouring Radiant Light' plays like a homage to early Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, and what Insomnium is doing now. Borderline black metal with blast-beats, raspy screams and progressive textures, Skeletonwitch are really a different animal when compared to their conception in 2003.
