Witchkiller were well-known in the metal underground in the
early eighties, but after releasing one EP in 1984 they
disappeared without a trace.
That EP, Day Of The Saxons
is considered a cult classic by some, though by modern standards
it might be considered a bit dated.
The style is undeniably 80's, Priest/Maiden styled metal, sounding
a lot like the many British bands that made the NWOBHM so special
at the start of the decade.
Nothing complicated, and in reality not terribly original even for
its time, Day Of The Saxons
is nonetheless an enjoyable trip
down memory lane, and a sure winner for any 80's metal fan.
As of 2012, a new version of the band is back in action, with intents
on recording later in the year.
