Skull Fist

This Canadian band plays a decidedly retro brand of 80's speed/power metal. There's energy and exuberance, though it's also a bit safe, with a rather pristine production and overly clear high-pitched vocals. It's been said countless times before and it bears repeating -- bands like this are clearly not out to change the world, and there's a definitely been-there-done-that feel with songs like "Call Of The Wild" or "Don't Stop The Fight", but 80's completists, or those just getting into this style of music, might find Skull Fist to their liking. As of this writing (summer 2015), founder Zach Slaughter has left the band, officially putting the band status as inactive.
