Band of the Day: Skull Pit

Name: Skull Pit

Home: USA/Japan

Genre: Heavy metal

What they say: “a tale of two musicians from opposite sides of the heavy metal spectrum and the planet [Church of Misery bassist Tatsu and Exumer singer Mem] creating melodies in the vein of 70s hard rock and 80s NWOBHM with Lemmy’s punk attitude”

What we sayThe exact middle point between Motorhead and Venom, combining the rock and roll groove of the latter with the blue-collar, I-fucking-love-metal-me gristle of the former. A sludgey turbo-charged love letter to good old fashioned heavy metal values.

What’s next? The band’s eponymous debut album is released 16 Nov via Metal Blade
