We have most of the stuff written already, [and are] looking to record in August/September and to have it released before the end of this year. We’re very excited about the new material and can’t wait to give you the chance to hear it! Better nail down the roof in good time… and reserve the top spot on your X-mas wish list for this upcoming aural bad boy!”

Reunited Skinless Releasing Only The Ruthless Remain on June 2nd

skinless

Reunited New York death metallers Skinless will be releasing their first new studio offering in nearly a decade titled Only The Ruthless Remain, out via Relapse Records on June 2nd, 2015 in North America (June 1st in the UK/EU and May 29th in DE/Benelux/Finland).

Skinless was forged in 1992 by guitarist Noah Carpenter with one goal: to be the heaviest band in creation. Following a variety of personnel changes and two demos, Skinless established a solid, dedicated lineup from 1997-2001 in the form of Carpenter, vocalist Sherwood Webber, bassist Joe Keyser and drummer Bob Beaulac. This version of the band would later become known as the “classic” lineup.

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 etc.) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Nails, Integrity etc.) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon, Only The Ruthless Remain boasts seven tracks of their 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.”

The band has a couple of upcoming live appearances:

May 21: Maryland Deathfest @ Soundstage – Baltimore, MD
Jun 21: Hellfest Open Air – Clisson (FR)
