skeletal remains Devouring Mortality (LP, £17.95)
Picking their name from a line in Demolition Hammer’s ‘Human Dissection’, California’s SKELETAL REMAINS not only have proven their exquisite taste in terms of finding the right moniker, but also musically by combining influences from Death to Pestilence, from early Gorguts to Morbid Angel as well as the aforementioned New York thrash commando. In support of the previous albums “Beyond The Flesh” (2012) and “Condemned To Misery” (2015), the band constantly toured Europe, the US or also Japan, performed at such renowned festivals as Maryland Death Fest, Party.San, Brutal Assault, Obscene Extreme or also Hellfest, and now seek to expand upon that with “Devouring Mortality”, the first album they will do as co-release via Century Media Records and Dark Descent. Mixed & mastered by Dan Swanö (Opeth, Bloodbath) and featuring impressive art by Dan Seagrave (Entombed, Suffocation, Dismember), vocalist/guitarist Chris Monroy is extremely proud of this new opus: “It is a true honour for us to have worked with these two legends, and we can't wait to share it with all the fans of death metal!” And there are many reasons for fans to be excited as ‘Seismic Abyss’, ‘Catastrophic Retribution’, ‘Parasitic Horrors’, the title track or ‘Torture Labyrinth’ are just some examples of how well SKELETAL REMAINS master the art of not sounding dated while being old schoolers at heart.
