Skeletonwitch, in my opinion, are one of the most overrated modern metal bands to come out of the States in recent times. Along with Warbringer, Revocation, and to a lesser extent Vektor, they're heralded as one of the new and improved thrash metal bands to break onto the scene. But enough of that. While about a third of Beyond the Permafrost kicked ass, Skeletonwitch have somewhat straightened up on this record. The album is more or less great (even though the vocals irk me a bit) and even though the two opening tracks (most popular ones) are a bit lackluster, the album through and through is consistent. From "Of Ash and Torment" on, the album shines, peaking with "The Infernal Resurrection", a great, fast, thrashing track, my favorite from the record.

The Infernal Resurrection
9/24 Beirut
10/18 Opeth
10/19 The Tallest Man on Earth
