It’s been close to ten years since we’ve heard a new note of music from formerly defunct New York death metal icons Skinless.
The band’s back, with its classic late 1990s lineup, and will issue a new record this June called Only The Ruthless Remain.
Several people helped make this record happen.
There’s the band, of course. But Tom Case recorded the bastard at two studios in UpState New York. Meanwhile, the highly-capable Dave Otero oversaw the tracking of vocals at Flatline Audio in Denver. Lastly, Brad Boatright mastered the fucker at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon — a city I desperately want to explore.
The new Skinless comes with seven fresh tracks of “punishing, concussively heavy grooves and surgically precise, blasting severity,” a press release claims.
Only The Ruthless Remain is now on my list of records I need to hear this year.
Commented the band:
“Stockpile your beers, gather your minions — it’s time to get RUTHLESS.”
Dude, ruthless is a state of mind. Get? I’m always in ruthless mode, dawg.
Skinless will be in Baltimore this May as part of this year’s Maryland Deathfest (which I won’t be attending, yet again) as well as Hellfest in France on June 21.
