Anyone dig these guys? I was hesitant to get this new album since Chance isn't on vocals anymore. What I had previously heard with the new singer Adam, I wasn't too impressed. It's grown on me the more I've listened to it. The music seems to have matured and I think new singer does a pretty good job. I'm trying to catch them in October to see how he is live. Apparently it's number 21 on Billboard's top selling independent albums this week.

Here's some info I pulled from there Bandcamp site where you can stream the new tunes.

I haven't heard of them, but that is a badass name! I like bands with "Witch" in their names and I also like skeletons.

Love this band. I think the new vocalist is a good fit.

I will always check out a band with 'witch' in the name. Also, tanks on the cover always get me to check out bands too, for some reason.

But yeah, I play to listen to this new EP. I wasn't that into the pre-single "Red Death, White Light", but you know, I've enjoyed all of their prior releases so.

The new ep is quite good. And the new vocalist does fit in well.

I figured I'd follow up on this thread. I saw them last Sunday for the final date of their Curse of the Dead tour in Richmond.  They played a small local brewery for a probably less than 100 people.   The new singer has the energy Chance had and sang old 'witch songs well... I still miss the old vocalist. I felt he had a unique voice that mixed well with the style of music. Not that Adam is bad, I think he's sound generic for the music.   We picked up a tour poster and got them all to sign it.  They're all a bunch of really nice guys.

Heard some new bands that night too.  Homewrecker from Ashtabula, Ohio dressed as the blue man group. They kicked ass. Dual vocals and played short heavy songs. Oathbreaker had some issues getting setup so their set was cut in half. It's a female fronted band and I honestly couldn't get into it. Their first song was like 2 minutes of her serenading solo to a crowd that just got pummeled by Homewrecker.  Iron Reagan was amazing. I hadn't heard them before. I'll be looking into picking up some of their stuff soon.

Took a pic of Nate from Skeletonwitch tearing it up.



Iron Reagan.

Oathbreaker are great but it's easy to see that they wouldn't fit into that bill.

Serpents Unleashed and Beyond the Permafrost are my favorites.
