“‘Airstrike’ showed that Mule Skinner hadn’t lost the fire and aggression that made their early albums great, and the band today are driven by the same excitement and desire to play extreme music that got them started in 1990″. Decibel Magazine
“‘Abuse’ is a criminally underrated ’90s gem and ‘Airstrike’ marks a long gestating but high quality sequel that should be closely checked by aficionados of death, grind, and top notch extreme metal in general”. Angry Metal Guy
“Without resorting to pure death metal or sludge metal yet touching upon both for those moments, Mule Skinner create a raw and uncompromising listening experience that is undeniably effective”. Grizzly Butts
Formed in 1990, MULE SKINNER stands as one of the first death/grind outfits spawned by the infernal circles of New Orleans that also gave birth to bands like Eyehategod, Crowbar, Soilent Green, Exhorder and so on. Since their first demo, they proved to take no prisoners with their tight, neck-breaking grindcore aggression.
“Airstrike” marks their merciless comeback 23 years after their devastating debut album “Abuse” and it sounds like no time has passed since then, as they are even faster and more crushing. Ballistic blast beats, caustic vocals and highly addictive riffs make the 13 songs on this new full length a complete aural warfare in the race to be one of the best grind albums of the year, recommended to fans of Assuck, Terrorizer, Flesh Parade, early Brutal Truth etc.
