Boston Death Metal force SCALPEL will give physical release to their debut full-length, Sorrow and Skin, tomorrow (September 3rd) via Sevared Records.
To mark the occasion, SCALPEL teamed up with the folks at DeathMetal.org for the premier of album track “The Black Juices.” Stream the tune at this location.
Death Metal is a visceral art that is dependent upon the extreme dedication of its loyal fans. SCALPEL has no other purpose than to deliver a version of this art to those same fans whose lives have been claimed by the likes of SUFFOCATION, CARCASS, and DEATH. It is in this vein that SCALPEL constructs its own brutal dirges, devoid of genre restriction and with an eagerness to explore the darker realms of music. The band is rooted firmly in the old school aesthetic, vigilant to revive the gnarly riffage and macabre lyrical content of so many vicious death metal acts. SCALPEL creates its own art to be maddening and precise, to fulfill the connotations of its name.
