Label: Prosthetic
Skeletonwitch plunder Ohio graveyards, but in a blindfold test you might guess their beast-grunted devil-metal came from someplace bitter and Scandinavian. While the drummer is usually not super-distinctive, now and then he forgoes blast-beats for a near-power-rock bottom. But the real saving grace is the two guitarists, who open the album almost placidly folk-strumming, then solo in commendably exploratory ways in cuts like "Reduced to the Failure of Prayer." Most magnificent climax comes in "Cleaver of Souls," which is also simultaneously the most harmonized and Celtic Frost-like track.
