Brandishing a name inspired from one of the genre’s best bands in their prime, Dismember, the fairly new outfit, SKINFATHER,is unapologetically heavily inspired by the act and their fellow 1990’s Stockholm counterparts, delivering an only slightly modernized version of what that scene’s infinitely influential early supply of death metal provided. With a slick, antagonistic approach, SKINFATHER has decimated audiences around their locale over the past three years, having released several singles and EPs. Now in 2014, the band is taking it to the next level on both the live and release fronts, with new tour actions and the news of their debut LP now upon us.
On April 22nd, SKINFATHER will release its debut album, None Will Mourn, on 12” LP via Todd Jones of Nails’ DIY label, Streetcleaner Records, and on iTunes/Spotify None Will Mourn was engineered by Taylor Young from Nails, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and features equally bold visual aesthetics courtesy of Raul Gonzalez.
A synopsis from when I first started listening to the album
From the opening track “Ordeal by fire” this debut album unleashes right from the start. The powerful Riffs begun this onslaught makes me excited for the rest of the album.
The aggressive vocals are a very nice addition to listening to the album. Tracks 2 and three stayed very consistent with their aggression in comparison to the opening tracking keeping me interested in listening.
Track 4 “Hellish Grave” turned things up a few which had me head banging in my seat.
Track 5 “None will Mourn” is only 2 minutes long and has no vocals but it’s very powerful and really makes you want to crank the volume to 11
Track 6 “Dead Still” to be my least favorite track it was very repetitive and didn’t bring anything new to the album.
When we continued on through the rest of the album, that remaining tracks brought things back up.
For a debut album I found this very well put together.
I would definitely recommend you pick this album up if you’re a fan of death metal
