Skinless - _Foreshadowing Our Demise_
by: Aaron McKay (
What I can appreciate about Skinless is their in-your-fucking-face style of brutality. The bass guitar, expertly played by Joe Keyser, is another reason for my unabashed fondness for this New York based four piece with an attitude. Does it remind me of the Florida bands I grew up listening to? YEA, but so what?! What 1998's _Progression Towards Evil_ did to rope me in, _Foreshadowing our Demise_ did to solidify my allegiance. Brutal, barbaric, heavy, catching and bold -- everything I like in a death metal band (complete with some audacious sampling). Same-y? Probably, but shit this severe is worth owning. Don't believe me? Check out "The Optimist"; you'll be singing praise for evermore...
