Witchkiller  


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.
