SkinKrawl, "SkinKrawl"

Uggh, SkinKrawl's three-song demo is just more of that shitty, half-baked nu-metal that's trying so hard to be death metal. They end up sounding like a second rate version of Slipknot but lacking the force, hate and intensity necessary to convincingly sell whatever message it is they're peddling. The vocals are probably the band's biggest problem, as they range from halfway scary to whiney and strangled, though the their songwriting skill isn't helping anything either. The total package presented here makes me want to bill the band for all of my precious time they've wasted with the fecal matter they call music.
