Flying in under the radar at the end of last year, Skinned Alive quietly dropped one of the best demos to come out of Boston in quite some time. But that only makes sense given the band’s pedigree. Skinned Alive features members of all your Boston favorites – from Bloodkrow Butcher, Male Nurses, Savageheads, Dry Hump, Chain Rank, Koward, Scapegoat, and the list goes on… The four tracks here play out somewhere between a harder version of Male Nurses and a meaner version of Chain Rank with riffs for days. The tracks are aggressive hardcore with a crunchy stomp but maintain the catchiness of the best of Male Nurses. The demo fits perfectly with Twerp Records tapes from 2013-2014 but also channels 80s east coast hardcore ranging from DYS to SOA to early youth crew. Keep your eyes peeled for more shows to pop up.
