Greek epic & gloomy death metallers Soulskinner are back with their fourth album, Descent to Abaddon, set for international release on May 22nd via Xtreem Music.
Soulskinner was born in the 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 and '07. But after a seven-year hiatus, the band returned with a very well-received third album, Crypts of Ancient Wisdom, released on Xtreem Music, where they changed their style into a 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 of 2016 recording their new album with a 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, and early Asphyx.
