One of my favorite record labels in hardcore and metal music today is Deathwish Inc. (home of Deafheaven, Converge, Code Orange Kids, Modern Life Is War, Punch and many more).

Situated by membership and sound in the context of contemporary rising Southern California hardcore, Skinwalker walk the edge along with bands like Power Trip as niche groups prominent among the hardcore underground but not yet broken in the mainstream of their appropriate genres. While the latter Power Trip has found its corner amongst the hardcore world with recent success beyond following the release of their latest record, the approaching three-year career of Skinfather seems to have walked the path of stagnation, having under their belt but two EPs and a record of inconsistent touring with prominence overshadowed by their peers, by the genre disconnect among their main fanbase. 2014 brings Skinfather’s debut record, None Will Mourn, to the front by way of Todd Jones of Nails’s label Streetcleaner Records. Continuing the group’s evolutionary incline towards a more expansive death metal style whilst refining their hardcore assault, None Will Mourn is definitely the group’s finest work to date and just may be the group’s breakout record.
