Skineater – “Dermal Harvest”

Skineater – “Dermal Harvest” (Pulverised Records)

Blurring death riffola from Swe-deth’s latest supergroup! Formed by guitarist Håkan Stuvemarkin (ex Wombbath and In Thy Dreams), the affectionately named Skineater grew as he added Jörgen Ström on vocals from The Mary Major, Stefan Westerberg from Carnal Forge and more recently drummer Matte Modin (ex-Dark Funeral, ex-Defleshed, Raised Fist, etc). Propelled by Modin’s hyper speed drumming, which incidentally doesn’t compromise his precision, songs like ‘He Was Murdered’, ‘Made Of Godsick’ and ‘Thousand Dead Faces’ are fast, heavy pieces of death metal very much along the lines of Morbid Angel right down to Ström’s gruff growling vocals and the techno death guitars. Where I would say there is a difference is in the liberal use of melody both in the licks and soloing which at times is even comparable to In Flames but actually adds to the dark, brooding atmosphere from Skineater….thoroughly menacing my friends.
