The Skinny: We’re pleased to present to you this world premiere stream of the new album Symphony for the Flayed from French rockers, Flayed. Due out on October 31st via Klonosphere Records, the band’s debut full-length album was produced, mixed and mastered by Raphaël Cartellier and Romain Gayral at Studios Cartellier and is “a glorious attempt to bring back the bluesy, foot-taping riffs of the mighty Deep Purple and Led Zepplin with a more modern, energetic twist.”

Flayed originally came to be in early 2013 when guitarist Julien, who already possesed and small arsenal of completed music, reached out to local friends to assist with recording. Needless to say, the chemistry was there and what was a simple project evolved into a touring band, not just a studio project. Symphony for the Flayed blend classic rock and blues into a rocking sound that most should dig.
