Skinless

"One of the hardest working and most powerful live acts in the world." - METAL MANIAC.

"SKINLESS are the embodiment of head-crushing brutality, and right now the sky's the limit." - SHATTERED META.

SKINLESS exploded onto the metal scene in 1992. Despite a variety of lineup changes, the songwriting team of Noah Carpenter (guitars) and Sherwood Webber (vocals) has remained constant since 1994. After adding the talents of Bob Beaulac (drums) and Joe Keyser (bass) SKINLESS established a solid, dedicated line-up. In 1998, SKINLESS released their full-length debut "Prog ...read more

SKINLESS exploded onto the metal scene in 1992. Despite a variety of lineup changes, the songwriting team of Noah Carpenter (guitars) and Sherwood Webber (vocals) has remained constant since 1994. After adding the talents of Bob Beaulac (drums) and Joe Keyser (bass) SKINLESS established a solid, dedicated line-up. In 1998, SKINLESS released their full-length debut "Progression Towards Evil." Recorded at Max Trax Studios in Albany, NY "Progression..." stunned the underground, showcasing the musicianship and energy that the band had become known for via its intense live performances. An entirely independent release, "Progression..." received frenzied acclaim from press the world over and saw remarkable sales.





SKINLESS embarked on three immensely successful tours in support of "Progression..." introducing legions of fans to the punishing live SKINLESS experience. The band toured the US with underground legends MORTICIAN on 1999's Chainsaw Tour, and in the Spring of 2000, SKINLESS toured the U.S. and Mexico with INCANTATION, spawning even more followers of the brutal underground revolution. Their subsequent European headlining tour claimed further disciples.

On their Relapse debut "Foreshadowing Our Demise," SKINLESS painted violent pictures of utter devastation. "Foreshadowing Our Demise" sonically documented the endless energy of the band's burly live performances, delivering an annihilating combination of punishing grooves and ultimate brutality. SKINLESS: gut-twisting deathgrind deluged listeners with colossal riffs, chaotic percussion and Webber's scathing vocal attack.





SKINLESS toured as much as possible in 2001/2002, being personally invited to hit the road with the likes of HATEBREED and SIX FEET UNDER, thus furthering their growing following. A high-profile appearance at the 2002 Beast Feast in Japan alongside SLAYER, PANTERA and THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN rounded out over two years of non-stop roadwork in support of "Foreshadowing....

Inarguably one of heavy music's most energetic and fast-rising bands, SKINLESS returned in 2003 with "From Sacrifice To Survival." Alternating between high-speed salvos and piledriving grooves 'From Sacrifice To Survival' embodies and amplifies the hardest-hitting hallmarks of U.S. metal. Powerful vocals punch through churning guitar crunch in what is the band's finest work to-date. Featuring the stellar production work of Neil Kernon (CANNIBAL CORPSE, JUDAS PRIEST, EXHUMED, etc.) and powerhouse drumming courtesy of John Longstreth (ORIGIN), 'From Sacrifice To Survival' vaulted SKINLESS' musical mania to an untouchable new apex.





Never a band to stay idle for long, SKINLESS hit the road in support of "From Sacrifice..." joining forces with labelmates DYING FETUS on their summer 2003 Stop At Nothing Tour. The band was then invited to support death metal giants SIX FEET UNDER on their Fall, 2003 U.S. tour, which SKINLESS did to a rousing response.

In the fall of 2004, SKINLESS released the DVD "Skinflick". Documenting the worldwide antics and world renowned ferocity of the band, Skinflick takes a look inside the world of SKINLESS, from the recording of their full-length effort, From Sacrifice to Survival, to live performances on stages the world over. This "all access" DVD will have you both headbanging violently and laughing deliriously, as the power and energy of the band's live show collides head-on with their hysterical off-stage antics.





Drummer Bob "BIG GUNS" Beaulac had rejoined Skinless to insure that chemistry and live ferocity remain intact.

After a decade of giving 110% to Skinless, vocalist Sherwood Webber decided to leave the band to pursue other interests. The band had chosen Joe's brother Jason Keyser (Detriment) as his replacement. Jason is an excellent vocalist and frontman and had been close to the band for many years, so it seemed the logical choice.





Skinless disbanded in April 2011. Jason Keyser currently performs duties for the band Origin. « hide
