Skinbound, a Buffalo based band, is making their presence felt and their message heard. By combining dark imagery with topics of controversy, their music depicts the violent truth of human nature.

Biography

Skinbound formed in Buffalo NY in 2005 as a five piece Metal/Alternative act. Combining dark imagery with topics of controversy, their music depicts the violent truth of human nature. And how greed, hypocrisy and power have corrupted the once sacred institutions of religious belief.

Since their debut in 2006, Skinbound has released a self titled album and has maintained a rigorous performance schedule. They have also been apart of many national tours including the ‘Jagermeister: Summer of Sin Tour, Obituary’s “Xecutioner’s Return” and Kittie’s “Funeral for Yesterday” tour.

In 2007 Skinbound was published by ASCAP and began receiving regular radio rotation in their home markets. Their album also became available through multiple online retailers including iTunes, e Music, Napster and Verizon V-Cast. 2008 saw them featured on Eclipse Records compilation disc “Loud Music Vol. 10” and Sinister Music/Rockstar Energy Drink’s “Mayhem Tour” compilation.

As Skinbound moves into 2009, the new year promises to be one of growth. In January Skinbound relocated its home base to Los Angeles California to begin developing new markets. The band has already begun working on their sophomore album and plans to tour in support of its release.

Lyrics

Preacher Man

Written By: Skinbound

GOD...DAMN...THE PREACHER...MAN

Wicked smile, bloodshot eyes
Big black book with big fat lies

Goddamn, goddamn the preacher man
I see the sin in your eyes
Not yet, not yet your punishment
You'll see it when you die

They'll be no salvation here
You're reckoning is near
They'll be no salvation there
No forgiveness

NO, no forgiveness

Come one, and all to pray
Bring the preacher all your pain

Goddamn, goddamn your rightous hand
That's where the judgement lies
You fake, you fake so full of hate
You're just a charliton

They'll be no salvation here
You're reckoning is near
They'll be no salvation there
No forgiveness

NO, no forgiveness

YOUR JUDGEMENT COMES
Liar, defiler, liar
ON YOUR KNEES
Liar, defiler, liar
YOUR JUDGEMENT COMES
Liar, defiler, liar
ON YOUR KNEES
Liar, defiler, liar

Wicked smile, bloodshot eyes
Big black book with big fat lies

Goddamn, goddamn the holy man
I see the lust in your eyes
Not yet, not yet your punishment
You'll see it when you die

They'll be no salvation here
You're reckoning is near
They'll be no salvation there
No forgiveness

NO, no forgiveness

Liar, defiler, liar
NO, no forgiveness
Liar, defiler, liar
NO, no forgiveness

Crucified

Written By: Skinbound

Desicrated for all of time
Sacrilidge of my mind
Heretic is all you see
Damnation bleeding from me

Crucified, in the house of lies
Crucified, before your eyes

Consicrated the ground where you lie
Revelations that you prophicize
Heretic condemning me?
Dicimation in blasphemy

Crucified, in the house of lies
Crucified, before your eyes

Sterilyzed with all your lies
Nailed down to your bleeding sky
Purify and twist my mind
Blind and leading me to die

Crucified, in the house of lies
Crucified, before your eyes

Paralyzed with fear in the eyes
Judgement not for you to decide
All I need to make this right
Cast ye down and kill thy light

Frailties

Written By: Skinbound

Our hands reach to the sky
But HE never comes
Now we stray from the LIGHT

Drop to your knees, bleed into me
And crush your sacrament of lies
Cut off both your wings, and needful things
Behold the new exodus of time

Hands reach to the sky
But HE never comes
Now we stray from the light
And never doubt

Abandon frailties
Will you bleed for me
Martyred endlessly
Blessed damnation be

Fearful you run, from the only one
Who will kneel before no god
None to here you say, but still you pray
"Forgive them, they know not what they've done"

Hands reach to the sky
But HE never comes
Now we stray from the light
And never doubt

We stray from the light
HE never comes

Drop to your knees, bleed into me
And crush your sacrament of lies
Cut off both your wings, and needful things
Behold the new exodus of time

Hands reach to the sky
But HE never comes
Now we stray from the light
And never doubt

Abandon frailties
Will you bleed for me
Martyred endlessly
Blessed damnation be

We stray from the light

Witch Hunt

Written By: Skinbound

First to cast a stone
First to judge me
Punished and persecuted
For what I believe
The New American
Holy Crusade
Takes away my freedoms
Just to get their way

Piss on my rights
Freedom of speech denied
Only they're right
Soon all our freedoms denied

Welcome to the WITCH HUNT
Persecution all around
Bound to the stake and watch me
BURN TO THE GROUND

Start the inquisition
For indecency
While your priests rape
And steal from the elderly
The New American
Holy Crusade
Takes away our freedoms
Just to get their way

Piss on our rights
Freedom of speech denied
Only they're right
And no one left to fight

Welcome to the WITCH HUNT
Persecution all around
Bound to the stake and watch me
BURN TO THE GROUND

BURN ME TO THE GROUND
BURN...

...ALL...
Lies, lies, lies
Foundation built on
Lies, lies, lies
The world believes your
Lies, lies, lies
All you preach are
Lies, lies, lies...

Welcome to the WITCH HUNT
Persecution all around
Bound to the stake and watch me
BURN TO THE GROUND

Welcome to the WITCH HUNT
Persecution all around
Welcome to the WITCH HUNT
BURN ME TO THE GROUND

The Suffering

Written By: Skinbound

I think that I see a empty sky
Your biggest fear
To think that I would believe your lies
That you preach here
The cries of agony they call to me
My punishment severe
They'll bleed the heresy out of me
The end is drawing near

Close my eyes
Hold inside
The suffering
The pain within
Close my eyes
Hold inside
The suffering
Stoning me to death

I think that I see a bleeding sky
It's your cross I bare
To think that I would believe your lies
That your god is fair
The cries of agony they call to me
My punishment severe
They'll bleed the heresy out of me
The end is drawing near

Close my eyes
Hold inside
The suffering
The pain within
Close my eyes
Hold inside
The suffering
Stoning me to death

Please don't leave me here to die
See the hatred in your eyes
Stone me to death here where I lye
Please don't leave me here to die

Close my eyes
Hold inside
The suffering
The pain within
Close my eyes
Hold inside
The suffering
Stoning me to death

My suffering
Stoning me to death
