Skeletonwitch

With the release of Beyond The Permafrost in 2007, this Ohio band is starting to generate some buzz. The name Skeletonwitch sounds like a nod to the old school, and while their basic style (thrash) is indeed old-school, this is not a retro-thrash act like so many others that have popped in the last year or two. Instead, Permafrost mixes some more modern influences (notably the black/death vocals and a faint black guitar style) with prime thrash and even a dash of NWOBHM, to rather good effect. This isn't yet a first-division band, but one definitely moving up -- a solid recommendation to modern thrash fans.
