SKINLESS To Release First Album In Over Eight Years

Monday, 16th March 2015

Reunited New York death metal legion SKINLESS will defile the ears of the living this June with their first new studio offering in nearly a decade. Titled Only The Ruthless Remain, and featuring their classic late ’90s lineup, SKINLESS returns stronger and more vicious than ever before with a prime slab of truly brutal death metal.

Recorded by Tom Case at Edie Road Studio and Doomsday Bunker Studio, both in upstate New York, with vocals tracked by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Primitive Man) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Nails, Integrity) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon, Only The Ruthless Remain boasts seven tracks of Skinless’ signature fusion of punishing, concussively heavy grooves and surgically precise, blasting severity. Only The Ruthless Remain is poised to stand among the most sadistic yet addictive death metal offerings of the year.

Comments the band, “Stockpile your beers, gather your minions, it’s time to get RUTHLESS.”

Formed in 1992 in Albany, New York, SKINLESS has released four full-length albums and numerous EPs throughout its 20-plus-year career. After disbanding in 2011, the group is now back together with the classic “Progression Towards Evil” lineup (Sherwood Webber on vocals, Noah Carpenter on guitar, Joe Keyser on bass, Bob Beaulac on drums) plus the recent addition of Dave Matthews on second guitar.
