New York-based death metallers SKINLESS have completed work on their new album for Relapse Records. Entitled "Trample The Weak, Hurdle the Dead", the CD is the band's first to feature new vocalist Jason Keyser. The follow-up to 2002's "From Sacrifice To Survival" was recorded with longtime engineer Brett Portzer at his Max Trax Studios and will be mastered by Scott Hull at Visceral Sound. "Orion at Relapse has a sick album cover and layout coming along," founding SKINLESS guitarist Noah Carpenter writes in a statement. A June 13 release is expected.
"Trample The Weak, Hurdle the Dead" track listing:
02. A Unilateral Disgust
03. Deviation Will Not Be Tolerated
04. Trample The Weak, Hurdle The Dead
