The latest skull-crusher comes by way of the band's imminent new full-length, the fittingly-titled Only The Ruthless Remain. Featuring their classic late '90s lineup of founding guitarist Noah Carpenter, vocalist Sherwood Webber, bassist Joe Keyser and drummer Bob Beaulac, with the recent addition of second guitarist, Dave Matthews, the record was captured by Tom Case at Edie Road Studio and Doomsday Bunker Studio, both in upstate New York, with vocals tracked by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Primitive Man etc.) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, and the entire slab of audio violence mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Nails, Integrity etc.) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon.

The sadistic, seven-minute "Skinless" clip begins innocently enough before surging throat first into a horrific world of lethal injections, human flaying and general group-inflicted suffering as part of "some sort of Satanic cult ritual." A delightful exercise in SKINLESS' signature brand of butchering riffs and surgical precision, "Skinless" is punishing both sonically and visually.

Elaborates Webber, "The 'Skinless' video chronicles the sordid obsession of our accomplice, the Hudson Skinner. Captured by an equally ruthless Jim Brassard and his team, have a look into the sickened world of the Hudson Skinner set to song by your fiends in SKINLESS."

Adds Bloody Disgusting, who premiered the video trailer last week, "The video, which is incredibly NSFW for torture and gore, shows a man being slowly murdered by the band as well as a 'doctor,' who could easily have come from Rob Zombie's House Of 1,000 Corpses. If you have issues with being skinned, avoid this video at all costs."
