Swedish death metallers SKINEATER have recruited Martin Pedersen (ex-VISCERAL BLEEDING) as their new frontman.Says Martin in a statement: "I've been off the death metal ride for almost two years now, getting some much-needed time to reflect on what I want to do. "When I talked to the guys in SKINEATER about this, I immediately felt that this is something I want to be a part of. "It feels great to finally be back doing what I love to do and I look forward to recording songs as well as playing live with these guys." Vocalist Jörgen Ström left SKINEATER last month "because of lack of time and motivation to put in all the hard work that is necessary to keep the band moving forward." SKINEATER's "Dismantled" video can be seen below. The clip was produced by Uppsala-based digital production company Oddville. "Dismantled" comes off SKINEATER's debut album, "Dermal Harvest", which was released in North America on Febuary 19, 2013 (January 28 in Europe) via Pulverised Records. According to a press release, the CD "showcases some of the most resilient veterans in the Swedish extreme scene, with past and present members from WOMBBATH, IN THY DREAMS, DARK FUNERAL, CARNAL FORGE, DEFLESHED, etc. The end result is an unstoppable skin-butcher unit literally flaying everything in its path! Never has death metal extremity been so well brewed with melodic darkness in a long time."
Recorded at various locations, mixed and mastered at Sweden's Studio Underground (CARNAL FORGE, STEEL ATTACK, FLESHCRAWL, NECRODEATH), and with the striking album artwork designed and conceptualized by Mathias Björkbacka, "Dermal Harvest" is without doubt a world-class audioviolence with sick torturous intent.
SKINEATER in 2011 announced the addition of drummer Matte Modin (DARK FUNERAL, RAISED FIST, DEFLESHED, SPORTLOV) to the group's ranks. Formed in late 2008, SKINEATER features scene veterans Håkan Stuvemark (ex-WOMBBATH, ex-IN THY DREAMS) and Stefan Westerberg (ex-CARNAL FORGE, ex-IN THY DREAMS).
