Greek epic & gloomy Death Metal band SOULSKINNER, is back with their 4th album entitled "Descent to Abaddon" which is set for release next month of May through Xtreem Music.
SOULSKINNER was born in year 2000 as a side band of two members of the mythic THOU ART LORD: Bill Zobolas "EL" (guitar) and Gothmog (vocals), and released two albums in '03 & '07, but after a 7-year hiatus, the band returned with a very well received 3rd album entitled "Crypts of Ancient Widsom", released on Xtreem Music, where they changed their style into less brutal but heavier, darker and more melodic Death Metal.
At that time, SOULSKINNER were a duo and quickly became a quintet, playing their very first shows ever and spent the whole year 2016 recording their new album with the new lineup, digging on their own style that will for sure appeal to fans of bands like BOLT THROWER, very early SEPTIC FLESH, early GOREFEST, early ASPHYX...
