The Skinny: Soul Killing Female is an atmospheric, progressive sludge-metal band from WInnipeg, Canada, formed in 2004. Initially a studio project for multi-intsrumentalist Michael Lewis, the band has been playing live since early 2009 throughout central Canada.

Utopia Mine, released in 2010, is the band’s debut album. Combining the sonic density of bands like Neurosis and Mogwai, with the technical riffs of Tool and the melodic sensibility of Type O Negative and Failure, Soul Killing Female are something truly unique in the world of metal – aggressively brutal and hauntingly beautiful all at once. All instruments were played by Lewis in the studio, with the performances being captured as is, no editing, just playing.  [ END ]
