.Phantom Witch at the X-Bar

Been itching for some old school Bay Area thrash metal? 40ish years in, the scene pioneered by acts like Exodus, Testament, and yes, Metallica, lives on in bands like Phantom Witch. Razor-sharp riffs layer on top of drummer/bandleader Q Minor’s pounding double-kick bass drums and crashing cymbals, providing the perfect stage for vocalist Zach Fox’s menacing growl. The band manages to keep thrash’s anti-establishment edge in songs like last year’s single “Guillotine.” In keeping with the spirit of 1986, Phantom Witch brings the riffs, speed and brings the danger to the X-Bar.
