Fleshcrawl's Soulskinner is more or less a Cannibal Corpse-esque, by-the-numbers death metal affair. Musically, the band offers the usual neck-snapping tempos, heavily distorted and detuned guitars, and, of course, Cookie Monster-style vocals which sputter unintelligible lyrics about killing, decomposition, hell, and other variations on mortality. There's really nothing new going on here -- even the lyrics are tame by genre standards -- but fans of extreme metal may enjoy Soulskinner's consistency. This includes a cover of Judas Priest's classic "Metal Gods."
