Skinlab - _Eyesore_
(Century Media, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (
All I have to say is that Skinlab has balls for covering Brujeria's killer "Raza Odiada (Pito Wilson)". It sounds good and heavy (phew!) and acts as one of the stronger angles of the band's limited EP _Eyesore_. Much in the vein of the band's 1997 release _Bound, Gagged and Blindfolded_, the new material here ("So Far From the Truth" and "Noah") continues on where these Bay Area thrashers left off: heavy. Rich in solid guitar work and a real awesome thrash metal groove, Skinlab feeds us with intense doses of metal for us to digest 'till their next full-length surfaces. The live version track of "Paleface" doesn't sound too good, as the vocals are severely muffled, but not a concern as it gets overshadowed by much better material anyway. Good five-song EP.
