Skinlab

Full marks to Skinlab for intensity but minus several zillion for invention or interest.

There are umpteen bands who sound like this, so take your pick, really. Lamb of God, there’s a start. And good luck to you - I can’t bear Lamb of God. Their albums should come with a course of general anaesthetic. Skinlab aren’t nearly as bad, thankfully, but it’s still Cookie Monster in full vocal effect over the sound of electric volcanoes farting. Face of Aggression ends with some kind of Whole Lotta Love monster and is track six really their take on a song by Budgie? I pray to Kermit it’s not.
