Mule Skinner are a band from New Orleans, Louisiana that plays a mixture of crust, grindcore and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "AIRSTRIKE" which was released by F.O.A.D Records.
A very heavy and brutal grindcore starts off the album while the faster sections of the songs also bringing in a great amount of blast beats along with the vocals also bringing in a mixture of death metal growls and screams as well as the music also mixing in elements of crust.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while most of the tracks a re very short in length along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's as well as the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody at times and the music always remains very heavy.
Mule Skinner plays a style of grindcore that is very heavily rooted in the 90's while also mixing in elements of crust and death metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover war and violence themes.
In my opinion Mule Skinner are a very great sounding mixture of crust, grindcore and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Suicide Vest" "Bred To Destroy" "Faith In Blood" and "Fuse". 8 out of 10.
