earned it's reputation as one of the most brutal live
acts in death metal today. Their third album shows a
newer sound added to Skinless that may have some
question that rep now. I really like this album, but
some older fans make not take the more simple,
straight forward playing in some of their songs.
Skinless may be looking for less of wowing the
audinece with technical speed playing, but just plain
pile driving their heads into the club floor with
more breakdowns and slam riffs. "Miscreant", The
Front Line of Sanity" and "Don't Risk Infection" have
more of a Lamb Of God than Dying Fetus feel to it.
It's still Skinless, but it's Skinless trying to kick
your ass with Brazilian Ju-Jitsu instead of Karate.
Then again, they weren't all that technical to start
with. Overall, a very slammy death album that will
leave you pickin' up chicklets.
