Artist: Skinflick 
   Title: Halo Of Flies / The Maggot Circle (the remix)
   Label: Dead Sexy Records

Skinflick have a sound that can only be described as post industrialist electro death metal, who’s influences lie in the macabre.

The first thing that grabs you is the vocals of Judas Williams, as the tracks aren’t simply sung, they are etched into your subconscious like some subliminal messages. With the additional vocals of Lady Chaos on a number of tracks lending that extra edge to the tracks.

This isn’t an album that is easily defined.  It has that dark electronic feel that would go down well in the clubs in London, but somehow I can’t see it being played on Radio 1.

Tracks of note are the menacing title track ‘Halo of Flies’ and the very dark and haunting ‘& Die’.  This double CD has a lot to offer fans of the darker, heavier, more sinister side of metal.

If you like to take a walk on the dark side and lose yourself in a electronic daze, leave all you worries behind you, let out you inner demon and check out Skinflick. However, if you're of a nervous disposition then I would leave well alone as this album will seriously mess with your head.
