Titled Only The Ruthless Remain, and featuring their classic late '90s lineup, SKINLESS returns stronger and more vicious than ever before with a prime slab of truly brutal death metal. 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 SKINLESS' 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."
Relapse Records Details Valkyrie "Shadows" LP Relapse Records, who is celebrating its 25th anniversary, has announced that they will be releasing a new LP from Valkyrie called Shadows on May 19th. The label is teasing the release with a trailer.... Watch/Post Valkyrie "Shadows" Trailer Propelled by the stunning guitar heroics of brothers Pete and Jake Adams, Virginia's Valkyrie return with their third full length Shadows, one of the year's best guitar-driven, heavy rock records. Jam packed with harmonized leads, rich solos and melodic, blues-based riffs, Valkyrie sound like the perfect blend of American style doom rock bands like Pentagram or Spirit Caravan and classic hard rock like Thin Lizzy, Wishbone Ash, and Deep Purple. Where Pete Adams' other band Baroness focuses more on the modern proggy and poppy side of metal, Valkyrie looks to proto metal trailblazers for influence while injecting plenty of current day inspiration. Produced by Sanford Parker (Pelican, Leviathan, YOB), Shadows is the perfect summer heavy rock record!
