Rome based crust metalpunk outfit SCHELETRO have signed to Time To Kill Records for the release of their sophomore album, which will be released in 2022 in conspiracy with Hellnation Music.
Tiptoeing a thin line between crust punk and old school death metal the band manages to churn out riffs seeking to create a sound that is simultaneously bleak, punishing and emotionally moving, drawing favorable comparisons to Wolfbrigade, Cripple Bastards and Martyrdöd.
SCHELETRO was formed in Rome by four friends, with the intention of playing live in the same hardcore scene active in organizing benefit gigs in squats to support self-organized libertarian activities, movements and prisoners. “Let’s play something easy and rough in order to get the band together quick and hit the stage as soon as possible” one of them once said. Too bad the members were so lazy that the band’s first rehearsal took place in 2011, the second in 2012 and by 2013 they decided to start practicing as often as once a month. So they started playing several gigs in squats and small clubs in Rome and other parts of Italy and in three years’ time they were able to write enough material for a short album, titled “Farfalle Dentro Al Vomito” (“Butterflies In The Vomit”), which they recorded in 2016 and came out in 2018.
This 10″ disc, limited to 250 copies and released through the international DIY network, earned the band unexpected attention from national metal media channels, followed by invitations to a few big festivals of the genre. Now, they are about to release their second album in 2022.
Watch for more details on the new album release, new tour updates, and more news on other upcoming SCHELETRO activities to be posted shortly.
