CD Reviews

Old School True Metal
Justin Gaines | Northern Virginia | 04/20/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"One glance at the cover art for Witchkiller's Day of the Saxons EP should tell you everything you need to know about the kind of music that's in store. Black leather outfits, a severed head...the only thing missing is a bloody broadsword or a battle axe. In case that isn't enough, the album was released by Metal Blade in 1984.

You guessed it; Day of the Saxons is an old school true metal album by a band who obviously worshipped Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. Witchkiller serves up five blistering battle anthems in the Omen vein for their debut (and only) release.

This is a must-have for old school metal fans, especially since Metal Blade remastered it. Plus, Amazon has it for less than $10 bucks. March on, metal warriors!
No School Like Old School

"A buddy of mine gave me this album on vinyl about 7 years back, and I remember hearing some of it. Recently he linked me to this page and now I want to get the CD, because this album was cool back them but now that it's re-mastered? WHOA, even better!
(Thanks a million, Scott!) :)This band was obvioulsy influenced by Judas priest, as one listen to 'Day Of The Saxons' immediately reminds you of Rob Halford's screaming vocals and the great guitar work they were known for.
Metal Blade had a great roundup of bands, but it seems that time, competition, and hanging styles have made most of this music obsolete by today's standards, except by those of us who STILL love it, myself included.
Let the times change, but there's No school like Old school. Witchkiller rules!"
