Review Witchnight : Unholy Speed Metal [EP] (2017)


Witchnight is coming  with their debut  EP ”  Unholy Speed Metal ” .  seem to have an endless stockpile of well played, inspirational, Black Speed metal riffs, enough to form an EP. This EP is chock full of twists and turns and all types of insane melodies that will keep any and all metal heads thrashing from now until the end of time.  I am really impressed with the balance the band has by incorporating all the elements of Thrash , Black and even Speed sub-genres of Metal. It is bands like this that will lead the next generation of metal musicians to create future metallic masterpieces. Having been in existence since 2016, Witchnight have spent only one year perfecting their sound and craft, so you can rest assured that these guys take their art and the very creation of their art, extremely seriously.The riffs are pretty standard as far as the Speed  and Thrash genres goes, and the mixtures of these two genres is an excellent mix of “give and take”. One does not overpower the other and it is easy to pick up on influences such as , Realm, Atrophy,  and some of Venom , and other bands such as these. The solos seem to take on a somewhat progressive vibe with a Thrash overtone reminiscent of what it would sound like if members of Comabat . In all seriousness, the guitar work is absolutely insane! Everything is crisp and precise and spectacularly orchestrated to give us all the highest level of quality musicianship that metal heads look for in bands like this. There is nothing really special about the drums, but the style played and the patterns chosen for this material is second to none. The pieces of this musical puzzle interlock perfectly and almost seamlessly. The vocalist has a style that seems he incorporates a unity of progressive, thrash, and Speed Metal styles and the outcome is a quite unique vocal delivery. I can’t really pinpoint any vocalist that sounds similar to this guy. He’s really good !  This definitely won’t appeal to everyone, but if you’re into any of the bands mentioned above, then chances are you’re going to love this band and EP. 
What Witchnight did with this EP is establish themselves among the oxxult Speed Metal beasts that need to release their full length at some point. Excellent example of how Black and Speed Metal can co-exist with one covering for the other creating an amalgam so intact and cohesive. Highly recommended for the fans of the genre.
