Shin To Shin Streaming New Album's Title Track

A389 Recordings this week confirms the pending release of the debut LP from Shin To Shin, the side project of guitarist Aaron Melnick.

You can hear the title track off the self-titled album below, courtesy of Lambgoat.com. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"Aaron Melnick's name is most often associated with the mighty Integrity, having been the lead guitarist for some of their most seminal releases including Those Who Fear Tomorrow, Systems Overload, Humanity Is The Devil and Seasons In The Size Of Days, in addition to contributing vocals, taking part in the arranging, recording and production of said records and much more. His blazing, divebomb-infused solo style seems directly descendant to Metallica and some of the earliest Bay Area thrash heroes, yet fueled for a more deplorable, clenched-fist audience.

"Melnick also formed In Cold Blood with his brother, bassist Leon Melnick, after the pair left the ranks of Integrity in the late '90s and remains active with several projects including Inmates, Die Hard and others, including his own Shin To Shin.

"With little more than a split 7" with now defunct Pulling Teeth, until now, Shin To Shin will release its self-titled LP on February 7th via A389, who also released the split EP in 2010. Merging the bottom-dredging influence of European death metal icons Bolt Thrower, Asphyx and Grave with the no-bullshit hardcore hostility of the Cleveland scene he grew up in, STS is 110% the brainchild of Aaron Melnick, the man having fully conceived and written all music for the act to date, and has performed every instrument of the split 7" and recently completed Shin To Shin LP, minus drums, even taking the lead on the recording and mixing of the album at Cleveland's Mars Studio.

"The album delivers eight crushing and diverse anthems with a lot of throwbacks to the early '90s metal and hardcore scenes, and today the public gets a whiff of the action."
