Skinweaver are a band from Belgium that plays an old school form of death metal with touches of black and doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Gratification Eternal" which was released by Great Dane Records.
A very heavy and old school 90's influenced sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls a few seconds later while the screams also add in a touch of black metal along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody and the slower sections of the songs are heavily influenced by doom metal.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the solos and leads being done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and some of the fast riffs also bring in a decent amount of tremolo picking and the music always remains very heavy.
Skinweaver plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in early 90's death metal while the black and doom metal elements gives the songs more originality, the production sound s very old school while the lyrics cover death and gore themes.
In my opinion Skinweaver are a very great sounding old school death metal band with elements of black and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Skinweaver" "Kneedeep Into Flesh" "Suffer Endless" and "Plague Bearer". 8 out of 10.
