New Skeletal Faces will unleash their Sextinction EP on June 25th. This is long-awaited new music from the Infernal alchemists.
Transmuting sound into power, the follow up to 2019’s critically-lauded Celestial Disease full-length finds New Skeletal Faces expanding upon their signature sound invoking the darkest, esoteric elements of rock and roll. Featuring deathrock anthem “Banshee Sex Tomb” and the thunderous metal-tinged dirge of “Extinction Of Bodies,” NEW Skeletal Faces intoxicate the listener once again with an arcane brew of sex, disenchantment, and danger!
Lyrically, both songs are suitably unpleasant. “Banshee Sex Tomb” attacks the listener by questioning innocence and morality. Rejecting both values, the song spirals downward into a romantic embrace of nihilism. “Extinction Of Bodies” is pure Armageddon. The verses clearly express the insignificance of humanity as replaceable species, and hints of a celestial force causing this destruction. Both songs are dire prophecies.
Recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely by the band, New Skeletal Faces’ limited-edition Sextinction EP is pressed on bone colored vinyl and features original cover art by vocalist/guitarist Errol Fritz. Staying true to DIY ethics, the record includes hand numbered and wax stamped obi-strips by the band themselves. Fans of Christian Death, Fields Of The Nephilim, and the dark side of punk-metal (ie Amebix) pay heed.

“The dark power trio recall a side of the deathrock and old goth scene that is perhaps not in as much focus these days — the side that counted rocker acts like Lords Of The New Church and Fields Of The Nephilim among their sonic peers instead of the more synthy, new wave-tinged stuff… NSF deliver big-hair-and-leather-jacket style, rock-influenced deathrock, a great soundtrack to a midnight beer and whiskey-fueled funeral party.” – Post-Punk’s Five Current Deathrock Bands You Should Definitely Be Listening To
