This month I had the chance to sit down and listen to what I consider to be a great metal band from Buffalo, NY known as Skinbound. I was immediately drawn into their music which mixes a combination of hard thrash with complex guitars, and slower metal that grooves like the days of Sabbath. I enjoyed the clarity of the lyrics and the distinctive tight transitions that wind throughout the songs. *(continued)





















band takes you from very hard old metal into hardcore thrash and back within one song. The lyrical content is oustanding and the band obviously is not afraid to address a few concerns that they have with the church. We are looking forward to check this band out live and loud. If you like good metal that is different, hard, and also complicated then this is the band for you. They will be climbing the metal rungs quick so check them by using the links below!

Combining dark imagery, topics of controversy, and heavy music with catchy grooves, Skinbound, is making their presence felt and their message heard. Comprised of five members based in Buffalo, NY, Skinbound, emerged onto the local Metal scene in January 2006. The founding members, Alexander and Benjamin, after a run in a previous Hardcore band, decided it was time to change directions. They joined up with Philip, and Edward, and now Michael, to complete a darker, more serious sound. Opting to take their time, they withheld themselves from the local scene, to produce quality songs with a message and imagery to match.

After dillegent sales of their three song demo, they released the long anticipated self titled album in March of 2007, which promises to provoke the minds of their listeners! Their sound throws together the gritty and heavy sound of todays Metal. While 'rockin' out with a more traditional format inspired by their late 80's, early 90's influences. The result is Heavy Metal that doesn't clump together as one big noisy mess. With some melody and deep topics to keep the fans listening for what's going to happen next!
