Skinlab Reveals More EP Details

Blabbermouth.net reports: Veteran San Francisco Bay Area metallers SKINLAB recently announced plans to release a digital EP titled "Bloodclot". The effort will feature the following tracks:

01. Face Of Aggression
02. In For The Kill
03. Bloodclot (demo)
04. Planets Collide (CROWBAR cover)
05. Wasting Away (NAILBOMB cover)

Commented the band: "We've been getting tons of e-mails regarding the 'Bloodclot' EP, so here ya go... the dirt.

"First off, the EP comes out of sheer frustration of not having any NEW music out in close to five years now! We originally planned on releasing 'Digikill' in early 2008, [but] due to label issues the project was scrapped and we were forced to abandon the whole thing. We've been sitting on 'Face Of Aggression' and 'In For The Kill' and have been wanting to make them available for everyone, so we decided to put together a digital release ourselves to make 'em available alongside another new track 'Bloodclot' and couple covers of two of our favorite bands NAILBOMB and the mighty CROWBAR!! These two bands were huge influences on SKINLAB in the early days NAILBOMB's 'Wasting Away' is just crushing and CROWBAR's 'Planets Collide' is one of the all-time heaviest song ever! Can't fuckin wait to share this with you all!!

"As far as the new album goes, we've some bad-ass stuff and are pretty close to closing the door on the writing session. This will be the most prepared we've ever been for an album. We've recorded this stuff back and forth about 5-6 times already, trying different ideas back and forth switchin shit around like no other record we've recorded.

"As excited as we all are to release the next SKINLAB, we're definitely not in any hurry to put out a half-assed record. Pound for pound, this is gonna be the best shit we've ever released. It's got elements from all of our albums as well as our influences, at the same time not straying to far from what we are... so that means no MAIDEN riffs, no twin leads, no Swedish metal licks... As much as we like it, it's not SKINLAB."
