An excellent blend of melodic riffs and solos combined with elements of thrash/death metal. The vocals are strong too - gravely but not incomprehensible. First class musicianship and production techniques makes this a great listen and one of my favourite releases of 09.

I saw this band at a festival and was impressed so I decided to get one of their albums and chose this one because of the badass cover art. And the album met my expectations. The band plays an extremely fast and intense thrash metal with a singer who switches between black metal shrieks and low death growls. The guitarists often use Maiden-like guitar harmonies which makes the music a tad more accesible and even catchy while maintaining the intensity. The rhythms and song structures are fairly simple and does not contain a lot of surprises but that is not necessary. The songs are so short and fly by so fast you don't have time to get even remotely bored. Not exactly revolutionary but doesn't have to be.

I bought this album because of the cover, which I think is splendid. The gatefold didgipack is very nice too. Musically it is fast, heavy, thrashy, shouty, etc. No particular track stands out, but if you like it loud and fast there are worse places to go. Probably if you are building a collection you would not start here.
Skeltonwitch is a young band, we may discover more in future.

A new genre: trash thrash? 17 Mar. 2011
By Scott Hedegard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
Skeletonwitch would like you to think they're a very down and dirty nasty band, at least according to the quotes on the cover of "Beyond The Permafrost" and what I've checked out on youtube. Maybe they're a little dirty behind the ears, but this is one smoking thrash outfit that will not remain a relative unknown for long, one hopes. Like its predecessor "Beyond The Permafrost", "Breathing the Fire" is a somewhat short but blazing thrash attack that recalls the speed and especially instrumental prowess of the early to mid-eighties period and blends it with snarling dog vocals for a slightly more up-to-date sound, if snarling dog vocals are your bag.
Personally, these rough scratchy vocals are a lot more tolerable than gutteral belching that most metalcore and deathcore "vocalists" prefer - I will not call most of these cookie monsters singers. What makes Skeletonwitch a cut above is the amazing duel guitar work, heavy and very musical. These guys know how to run you over and make you whistle the riff while they do it, which is something a lot of bands either never learned to do, or simply don't care to. Hailing from the small burg of Athens, Ohio, home of the Ohio University, SW may just make us forget all about Ohio State and Columbus up the road. Midwest thrash that can raise hell with the best of 'em.

This album is fire, swords, zombies, volcanoes, thunder and lightning wrapped up into 30 minutes of metal! 13 Dec. 2009
By William Dorfer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hopefully the title will give you some idea of what "Breathing the Fire" is like. Skeletonwitch has made another great thrash metal album, and honestly, it's even a few steps ahead of "Beyond The Permafrost". This album is like a musical flaming electric hurricane that may just instigate a gigantic moshpit with each time it's cranked.

The band is quite talented indeed, coming up with plenty of riffs that are catchy but not too simple. The drums are also insane, putting an edge to an already edgy sound. And to top it off, the vocals add an interesting element because instead of the aggressive singing of thrash masters such as Metallica's James Hetfield or Machine Head's Robb Flynn or the whine of Overkill's Bobby Ellsworth or Exodus's ex-vocalist Steve Souza, Chance Garnette uses a cross between gutteral death metal vocals and upper register black metal vocals. This sort of overlapping vocal styles for different metal subgenres adds a fresh feel and makes things even more exciting. It's also crazy to think that most of these songs are all of three minutes but contain just as much energy as a song twice their length.

Now, as for the album itself, I think "Breathing the Fire" is a few steps forward form "Beyond The Permafrost" for a few reasons. For one, the songwriting here has gotten even better. Secondly, the band has added some more melodic elements to their sound. Listen to the beautiful, clean guitar passages on "Repulsive Salvation" or "...And Into The Flame". Skeletonwitch is able to combine a good sense of melody with brutal, crushing thrash metal. And the combination works here!

Well, I've said enough here. For a half-hour of pure, raw metal, this album is one to get! Five stars to the newest album from the most evil band from Ohio! Thanks for the time, and peace.

Solid follow-up to a classic 13 Oct. 2009
By Frank Rini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really felt Beyond the Permafrost was an incredible release. Every song was catchy both musically and vocally, and I can hum every tune in my head. It's rare to find a band that can create such a memorable release w/tons of catchy riffs and vocals. So I set the bar high for this release, maybe a little too high. This is 100% Skeletonwitch, no doubt, but it's not as memorable as BTP. the first thing that is noticeable is the production has a much rawer sound than the last cd, not as polished and has a more underground feeling. I feel this detracts from material, as it's not as punchy sounding as BTP. The other big draw back, for me, is the fact that the songs are not that memorable. Sure their are a fair amount of tunes that rock like the awesome opener submit to the suffering, stand fight and die, crushed beyond dust and strangled by unseen hands, but more often than not I zoned out of the songs. I got the preorder last thursday and have listened to it half a dozen times already and the songs just don't stick out that much. Muscianship is top notch and this band still cranks. I think this is more of a grower, as an album, but when something does not hit me hard the first several times I ususually relegate it to the pile of cds I will listen to down the road. The band claim this is their most brutal release. It's about the same as BTP. Blast beats woven in between thrashier parts. I love the vocals. The black metal coupled w/the sinister deep death growls are better on this release, I feel. Anyway if you like this band you will like this, for me, it's just not as striking as BTP.
These guys are wicked 2 Feb. 2014
By W. Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really like these guys. I actually bought Forever Abomination first and decided to buy this. Crushed Beyond Dust reminds me of Slayer and Metallica. I must say that a lot of bands in the metal genre are incorporating Slayer more and more. Skeletonwitch is not really "thrash" in the conventional sense. There us definitely the blazing speed of 80's thrash, but the vocals are more along the lines of black metal. Stand Fight and Die is another fantastic song. This is bare bones, raw metal and I am thoroughly impressed. If you like old school thrash and death/black metal. The 'Witch is for you

I grew up loving Thrash metal, it was my gateway genre into metal. Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Kreator, Exodus, you name it! I still have a sweet spot for thrash bands to this day. I have moved on to like black metal and blackened thrash metal bands a little more so when I heard Skeletonwitch for the first time with their first full length, Beyond the Permafrost, I just knew I HAD to have Breathing The Fire. Musically, they are very thrashy. But the vocals is what sets the band apart. The songs are short and sweet and leave you wanting more every time. And they are AWESOME live too :D
