Skinfather Wants You (To “Drown in Black”)

Maybe it isn’t a complete surprise that a rising death metal band would adopt a circa-1993 song title from Swedish extreme music legends (and Decibel Hall of Famers) Dismember as its moniker. How well Southern California’s Skinfather captures the spirit and unadulterated sonic brutality of that glorious moment in time, on the other hand, is no doubt about to turn more than a few heads.
The band’s debut LP None Will Mourn doesn’t drop until April 22 — on Todd Jones of Nails’ DIY label Streetcleaner Records, no less — but this morning we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek stream of one stellar track, “Drown in Black.” Also, you can get a free immediate download of the LP with pre-order.
