Kind of weird hearing some of these songs on a studio album when I am used to the live versions. This is REO's most successful studio album.

Melodic Death Metal

Well, the only thing tormented was me while listening to this. Normally I would of turned it off but the first 4 tracks were the better ones so I was already half way through when this one went down hill quick. For me, it was the vocals that I did not care for.

Nice surprise here. Never heard of them until today and I liked what I heard. Definitely liked the more Doom/slower sounding songs better. This band does not tour, studio only and little to no bass guitar....

Critics seem to like the new Skeletonwitch, for the most part. Fans not so much.

So far I think it’s pretty amazing and their best effort to date. I still hear the old Skeletonwitch plus so much more.

Can’t wait to hear what you think.

Never was a huge Skeletonwitch fan, always thought they were just ok. Just listened to "Fen of Shadows" though and I think it sounds fantastic. Like you I think it's the best I've heard from them. Out of curiosity why are fans saying they don't like it?

Not as much of the old thrash sound and the first full length with the new singer.

Interesting. One of the main reasons I strayed away from metal over the years was because I didn't really see it evolving or going anywhere. I guess I just sort of got burned out on it. It's good to see bands evolve and try out new sounds. Unfortunately the bands who try new things are the one's who get sh-t on the most in the metal community.

I agree... but now at least in my opinion there is this whole new movement of basically going back to the basics but adding a kick to it. All this new wave of old thrash, death, doom, is just great.

Skeletonwitch - Devouring Radiant Light (2018)

My Ratings: 69.080
Rank: 1086 (out of 1307)

Best Song: The Luminous Sky [74.0]

Melodic Death Metal

New singer for this one.... well, I only really liked 3 songs. The one I listed above, Fen of Shadows, and Vault. The new singer was part of the problem but the other bit was the "melodic" high pitch sounding guitar. Leave it out and I would of liked it better. It was a distraction for me... I'm not really a fan of technical metal which I am afraid the direction this band is headed. The lack of thrash on this album was also a problem for me. I enjoyed the older Blackened Thrash sound you got like on "Beyond the Permafrost". I doubt this one will grow on me....

Liked this one the best so far....
While probably not in your wheel house this one along with the next one, American Beauty, are the best examples of their take on Americana music. Most fans at the time didn't know that Jerry Garcia was originally a blue grass guitarists and it really shines through on this album. Also, at this time they use to play 3 sets with the New Riders of the Purple Sage playing along with them in an acoustic 1st set that included many Blue Grass and Folk standards; the final 2 sets were electric GD.
