After 15 years hiatus, the old-school extreme metal veterans Skull Fuckers Incorporated are back with their 3rd record First Penetration. Skull Fuckers Incorporated enjoyed massive success back in the late 90s before taking time off music but now, they are back unleashing hell with First Penetration, let me tell you more about it.

The Dangers of Skull Fucking warms up the listeners and builds up until Skull Fuckers Incorporated officially kickstarts First Penetration with the raw attacking sound of Pain. An intense headbanger with pounding blasts, aggressive stress-relieving vocals, and filthy irresistible riffs, all within a brutally dynamic structure with twists and turns that sent me off my seat headbanging. Nightmare comes next building on its predecessor’s energy and heaviness, with an even more raw sound and some groovy interesting drumming. Sounds like Skull Fuckers Incorporated are pushing their boundaries forward with deadly machinegun riffs and thrashy mood-blasting vocals, and adding those shredding wailing guitar boosted the dynamics up the roof. After a creepy mysterious sampled intro, Spice Girl explodes with a classic Slayer-y riff that sent me circle headbanging before blasting an OSDM dense filthy sound. It is an aggressive relentless piece that’ll take over your senses with its slow groove and dry drum blasts with an escalating dynamic sound that’ll leave you satisfied.

Skull Fuckers Incorporated hits next really hard, with an even bigger more brutal sound that surrounds you and pushes you right into the song. It has a raw old-school sound with some guitar hero shredding and an extremely catchy structure. I never thought Marylin Manson‘s The Beautiful People could get heavier or more energetic until I reached Skull Fuckers Incorporated cover! Somehow those guys managed to give it a bigger and more atmospheric sound with their effects and deep guitars. The vocals were haunting with the effects focusing the listener’s attention on the beat and vocal melody. Soloscum comes next to slow things down and give us a chance to take our breath with its slow funeral pace. It’s an atmospheric piece with obscure interesting melodies and a subtle dark emotional side. Loved its smooth slow progression that allowed me to digest every shift. The Vampire Hunter comes storming from the first to the last note with a blasting sound that restored all the energy. It keeps on going relentlessly forward with an amazing groove and lots of bass magic. Skull Fuckers Incorporated fully unleashed their industrial sound on their cover of Rob Zombie‘s More Hyman Than Human.  They played around with its sound with their deep effects and brutal powerful vocals, taking its energy to the next level as they hit with a hyped-up flow, and upgraded their production to a clearer more modern one. Taking a shot on one last cover comes Wish, a Nine Inch Nails cover that shows their good sense of mood and dynamics. Skull Fuckers Incorporated stood true to their industrial roots once again and added their aggressiveness and raw anger, maximizing Wish‘s attacking sound and making it more fearful and enthusiastic. Injecting their raw fast riffs and energy as we move towards the end of the record comes Who Are They. It has some hypnotizing machinegun drumming and sharp dynamic shifts that keep the listener hooked and follow its twists and turns till the end. The sound panning at the intro of The God of Nothing was pretty cool. It ends the record on a high note with its unstoppable groove and extreme brutality. Bringing riffs and vocals from the depths of hell with a guttural heaviness and full-speed driving flow. It has a well-balanced structure with dynamic ups and downs and pounding breakdowns that had me headbanging for the whole 5 minutes. 

First Penetration is a record that’ll break into your “2023 Favourites” playlist. Skull Fuckers Incorporated loudly and boldly show their writing abilities, musicianship, and burning passion through their music, with a ramp dynamic sound that never stops getting heavier and bigger leaving you waiting for their next release already. Looking forward to more from Skull Fuckers Incorporated, keep on rocking. Cheers!
