Exclusive Track Premiere: “Barbaric Proclivity” by Skinless


Skinless - Only the Ruthless Remain

“Barbaric Proclivity” is the seventh track on the first Skinless album in eight years. Re-arrange those three digits, and you get 187, numbers which denote, of course, homicide. Coincidence?!?! Probably. But it certainly seems appropriate: the band’s new album is called Only the Ruthless Remain, but calling this song “ruthless” doesn’t even do it justice.  This track is straight-up BLOODTHIRSTY.If you played it for one of rage-zombies in the movie 28 Days Later, they’d be like, “Whoa, too harsh, bruh! Chill!” It will grab you by your waist and squeeze your innards out of your mouth like so much toothpaste. It is all the proof anyone ought to need that the nearly-decade-long wait for a new Skinless album was worth the wait.

Which is why we’re so stoked to be debuting it on MetalSucks today! You can bang it below. Make sure you play it for someone really special in your life, too — y’know, the person you really would kill if you knew you could get away with it. It’ll really get those intimate feelings across!

Only the Ruthless Remain comes out June 2 on Relapse. Pre-order it here.
