“It’s the sound of modern metal reclaiming its mean-spirited and malevolent heritage.”  –  Metal Hammer

“If your inner-ear is hearing Exodus and Kill ‘Em All riffs getting a cloven-hoof kick in the nuts by Bathory (old) and Immortal (later period), then you’re right on target.”  – Decibel

“…a record that merges the tenets of NWOBHM, early thrash, melodic death metal and an instinctual need to throw shapes, bang heads and worship at the altar of all that is unholy.” – Metal Manics

“A furiously bloody onslaught of romping high-fret melodies, blast and orcish screams; A thematic dictation of brutal slaughter, vanqueished demons and severed heads.”  -  Terrorizer

“Skeletonwitch is underground gold.” – www.MetalCrypt.com

“It just has the feel of an 80’s thrash record in every department….. If you’re a fan of the era than you want this.” –
www.Deadtide.com

“Worship the Witch should be quite appealing to fans of 80’s thrash metal as well as those just looking for something new to throw some horns up to.” – Lambgoat.com

“I have to say the opening of the first track really surprised me, I was expecting some ultra heavy detuned extreme black metal. Instead I got this great 1986 feeling of hearing some great thrash metal along the lines of KREATOR, TESTAMENT and OVERKILL. The riffs are well-constructed and have a great melody to them. Then there are the vocals, which remind me of some bestial creature being suffocated by its own regurgitated bile.” – www.PeaceDogMan.com

“I guess you could call it blackened death thrash…. a force to be reckoned with.” –
www.UnboundZine.com

“Birthed from the loins of Satanic frenzy; forged in Metal and spit out of Ohio like venom, Skeletonwitch puts a new twist on old school by combining traditional NWOBHM arrangements with modern Melodic Death Metal aesthetic. Top it off with throat-grinding vocals and you got the Metal juggernaut that is the ‘Witch.” –
