"Fragments of the Ageless" (Century Media; 2024)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Sometimes I just need my ears to bleed musically. Not all the time, but sometimes I do and luckily I am in the right business for that .

Skeletal Remains and their recording Fragments of the Ageless was just what I needed, and gave me the opportunity to hear the "heavy" in "heavy metal." The thunderous, pounding double bass drums and bass guitar sets a strong backbone for the guitars and vocals to bring the entire project to a deeper and darker depth. You may be able to hear what the singer is saying, vocally; however, the lyrics are deep and dark and may take some time to sink in. Better yet, just go with the flow. Let this album take you for its bumpy ride.

Trying to explain to someone why you like metal music is like trying to explain color to a blind person: Sometimes, it's better not attempted. But if you like explosive music that is fun and loud on a heavy metal canvas, Skeletal Remains (also what a great fucking name for a band) is the audio painter who you're looking for.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
