Skew Whiff
Taedium Vitae (Life Is Abuse)

By: Jeb Branin

SKEW WHIFF rip through 14 tracks of crossover tinged hardcore on their "Taedium Vitae" CD. They are gritty and heavy-handed enough that crust fans are going to eat this up. The band features at least one former member of HIATUS and although SKEW WHIFF has its own sound, HIATUS fans are going to connect instantly to the harshness found here. Clean in-your-face production adds to the battering ram sound. Although their sound is only slightly reminiscent HELLBASTARD, I can't seem to keep the comparison from coming to mind* maybe it is because when I listen to this I have the nearly uncontrollable desire to don a sleeveless leather vest and studded wristbands.
