Fleshcrawl are one of the oldest German death betal bands formed already in the mid-Eighties. After several name problems (the band used to be called Morgoth and Suffocation), they found in 1990 with Fleshcrawl a name that was not trademarked. Meanwhile Soulskinner is the sixth album by this brutal death betal band. They make no secret about their devotion to classic Swedish death metal. All six albums got recorded and produced in Sweden because they think that there are nowhere better engineers for that kind of music. You shouldn't expect any revoltuary elements of music in Fleshcrawl's sound. But because the songs are varying from very fast to midtempo songs and because of a killer production, Soulskinner has become a great brutal death metal album containing 10 first class songs. The last track is a cover version of Judas Priest's Metal Gods, of course a well done song, but showing little parallels to the original. I think that this CD is a must for true Death Metal fans.
