Prolific underground artist Skulk, The Hulking is releasing a brand new album, his third, Afterbirth Of A Nation, due out December 14th, 2018. Normally a solo artist, now joined by grindcore veterans Ashley Levine (guitar), Fernando Morales (drums), and avant-garde rocker Vern Woodhead (bass), Sulk, The Hulking is set to defy expectations, subvert traditional genres, and basically bitch slap the boring out of the ears of listeners. Afterbirth Of A Nation was recorded with jazz drummer Rob Mitzner, and mixed by Scot Moriarty at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey. Ghost Cult shares the timely and clever ‘This Commercialism Sure Mean Business’ as exhibit “A”.
About the artist:
A young man and not yet a beast, Skulk first began to form in college when he was torn apart by Nietzsche and Hume. God was dead, there was no free will, and actual truth could never be perceived. Drowning himself in music, he looked to it for answers. Post Hardcore was thriving in the Midwest and a young ogre engaged the scene learning all he could about time signatures, aggression, and the idea that art is communication.
Eventually the young monster made his way to New York, where he found himself surrounded by like-minded creators. Several years later, Skulk has evolved from a one-man operation to a full band that blends punk, metal, and hip-hop with intensely incisive lyrics, fitting for a world that is so close to crumbling.
