SKELETON PIT – LUST TO LYNCH (Review By Varg The Mighty )

Today’s review is of German Thrash Metal band Skeleton Pit’s second album, “Lust To Lynch”.
Instead of adopting their country’s style, they have opted to copy the style of Bay Area, almost completely except for some very slight reminders of German Thrash (especially on the voice). While their talent brings us good songs like “Violent Raid” or “Skull Splitting Attack”, it is apparent that they don’t really leave much their comfort zone on this album, but then again, they have achieved a good result without exiting their borders.
The music is quite old-school, and the rhythm that gets slightly near the one of early-Anthrax (notably in the fast-paced, mosh-inducing riffs or the very filling choruses) gives us fun and violent songs that may appeal combined with some slow parts, especially some breakdown every now and then that may remind us of Vio-Lence to any classic thrasher, but the songs don’t quite stand out between all the legions of new Thrash Metal bands that play this style. Surely if more Teutonic elements were applied to the composition the already decent full-length would’ve been even better.
I recommend this album to fans of Thrash Metal, especially Bay Area. My rating is of 8,5/10.
