Much like Beyond the Permafrost, Breathing the Fire is a darker trip into the land of thrash. Instead of moody atmosphere, we are presented with one ass kicking riff after another. As a thrash fiend, I can’t get enough of that raw onslaught that provides energy and nothing but. Beyond the Permafrost was a damn good effort, but I must say that the maturity the band shows by reeling in the chaos in favor of more controlled bursts with melodies that sound more like 3 Inches of Blood than Skeletonwitch, is a welcomed addition. Skeletonwitch have clearly become experts at their craft by honing their strengths while adding on melodies and new riffs for added effect.
