Arkham Witch

This British mob has been slogging it out since 2008, winning over their fair share of fans but without any pretense of becoming superstars. A band that doesn't appear to take themselves too seriously, their brand of carefree, NWOBHM-influenced, rather basic traditional metal (tailor-made for the retro Metal On Metal label) has an infectious quality about it that must just makes them fun to listen to. This kind of music is built for dimly-lit tiny clubs where band and fans alike can headbang the night away. There's no chance of Arkham Witch changing the metal world, but any traditional metal fan should seek them out.
