Skelethal – Deathmanicvs Revelation [EP]

No Image Available

This will take you back for sure! The vocals, the sound, the riffs, drumming…this is end 1980s / begin 1990s Old School Death Metal to the bone! This duo from France are borrowing ideas from the old SweDeath scene as well as almighty Autopsy, creating diabolical hymns to pursue the listener to worship Skelethal. Well, everything I said in the review of the Skelethal / Inisans split tape, can be copied easily in this review. Only it’s less old Sepultura on this EP and more Autopsy. Still, nothing to complain. At the end, you will be treated with a Sacrilege cover (“A Violation of Something Sacred” of their “Behind the Realms of Madness” album (1985)). Quite an uncommon choice if you ask me, but it fits just fine. For the vinyl freaks, Iron Bonehead Productions released this EP on 12” vinyl (500 copies). For the tape adepts, Caligari Records made 100 copies of them. So don’t hesitate to contact at least one of them! (Ricardo)
