Austin, Texas blackened metal/punk trio, SKELETON, have released their debut LP via 20 Buck Spin last month


Skeleton Ripping forth like a dagger from the flesh of Austin, Texas comes the self-titled debut LP from the lone star state’s new wreckers of civilization, SKELETON. Having plied their black-market trade for several years in grime infested underground dungeons and sub-basements, 20 Buck Spin was called forth to issue SKELETON’s first LP, a cataclysmic expansion of the band’s unhallowed vision venturing well beyond its earlier borders.

Though some might be prone to lazily apply simplistic genre tags to SKELETON’s style, the reality is far more sweeping as the debut LP immediately reveals an excessively sharp metallic-charged juggernaut of severe force and high plains mayhem. War-like hymns for the soldiers of a scorched apocalypse to come, from which a bleak alternate future will emerge.

Probably the most savage and intelligent dark punk/metal hybrid in years, the eleven tracks comprising Skeleton signal the black dawn of a new breed, and when the final somber strains of “Catacombs” close out the album, an eerie sense of the end as the beginning lingers like a morbid premonition.

Skeleton was recorded and mixed by Chico Jones at Estuary Recording Facility, produced by SKELETON and Jones and mastered by Sasha Stroud at Artifact Audio NYC with artwork by Jeremy Cook, layout by Ian Graham, and photography by Mark Garcia and John Byrnes.

Skeleton is out now on LP, CD, cassette, and digital formats. Fans of Venom, Bathory, early Mayhem, Discharge, Anti Cimex, Amebix, Raspberry Bulbs, G.I.S.M., Nightfell, or who follow the Austin Texas punk/metal scenes pay heed.
