Honestly, I’m not sure whether or not the band or any of the members of New Skeletal Faces are from San Diego. Their bio simply states that they are from, California. What I do know is that New Skeletal Faces has recently blown minds at two shows, in two different San Diego venues. So, that’s pretty San Diego ( ish ), right? Fuck it, I’m going with it. UPDATE: New Skeletal Faces is a San Diego band! Yay!!
Anyways, I’m listening to New Skeletal Faces, new EP now. What I’m hearing can be described as otherworldly with a lovely dark fantasy feeling but somehow they still bring that brutal metal. I heard the metal in the meticulous shredding, power driven drums with a dark intent feel. I loved it! The vocalist, Errol Fritz, has a voice that reminds me a little bit of, Robert Smith from The Cure. Don’t get twisted, Fritz does not copy Robert Smith’s style but his voice does sound similar. Basically, I love New Skeletal Faces!
New Skeletal Faces shreds, the vocals and lyrics are intense with pounding drums that make New Skeletal Faces danceable but still quite metal. Nu Metal/Goth Metal? Yeah, I’m going with that.
