burnt skull

Texas two-piece Burnt Skull sound pretty much like you'd expect them to with a name like that -- punishing, relentless bile. Dustin Pilkington (who's also in Total Abuse) and and Anthony Davis also make music together as Best Fwends, but this is decidedly nastier noise. Their album, Sewer Birth, came out early this year on Gerard Cosloy's 12XU label and you can stream it in full below.

Burnt Skull are playing their first-ever non-TX shows this weekend, both in the Northeast. On Friday (11/7) they play the Boston Hassle Fest with No Joy, Guerrilla Toss, Debo Band and more. (Full schedule for the two-day event below). Then on Saturday (11/8) Burnt Skull play Death by Audio with White Mice, Doomsday Student, Child Bite, and Necking.
