The Skinny: Tyrants Blood are an extreme speed metal band that were conceived in late Summer 2005, and solidified its original lineup in January of 2006. Started by ex-Witches Hammer/Blasphemy guitarist Marco Banco (Traditional Sodomizer of the Goddess of Perversity) and local drummer Kevin Volatile, the group now consists of Marco Banco, ex-Abuse drummer Matt “Blood” Modder, infernal Majesty vocalist ‘Brian “Messiah” Langley’ and bass/vocalist Vinnie Borden.
The band’s debut album was released by Morbid Moon records out of Montreal Quebec in late 2006. Then in 2007 they were signed to Ireland’s main metal company Invictus Records, where they released both the 2007 EP Prophecy, and their latest full-length album, 2009 ‘s Crushing Onward Into Oblivion. The new track, “Slithering Into Exile” is but a taste of what to expect from Crushing Onward Into Oblivion. The song is a perfect representation of both the album and the band itself.
