Skinless may be filed under "brutal death metal", but I've heard more brutal. That's a comment, not a criticism nor a bad thing. On Savagery, they certainly have the occasional brutal moments, but overall I found this to be just a nice slab of traditional death metal. Lots of thrashy parts here that kind of tone the chaos down here and there. This is heavy and loud stuff, with pounding drums and a bass sound that doesn't take the back seat. The growls are quite deep and seriously bad ass, often decipherable without sounding watered down in anyway. Thankfully, the singer doesn't fall into the usual pig-squeal trap or anything like that. There's nothing that I would call original, but it's solid, well-played death metal with some staying power.
