Project: Failing Flesh  

Project: Failing Flesh was formed by a pair of Virginian metallist brothers by the names of Tim Gutierrez and Kevin 131, (the latter of whom has made his mark as a producer and engineer of bands such as While Heaven Wept and Twisted Tower Dire), the duo joined by former Voivod vocalist Eric Forrest to complete the group. The band's debut effort, A Beautiful Sickness, was recorded in 2003 and was released independently by the band in a limited form before Karmageddon Media wisely signed them up and properly released the album in 2004. A Beautiful Sickness is a scorcher, mixing a bit of industrial metal, some mid-paced thrash, some Voivod-style weirdness, unexpected touches such as a twisted violin solo, and more, with a style all their own. Their cover of Venom's "Warhead" is one of the best metal cover songs in some time, but their own material is simply fantastic. A huge recommendation to extreme metal fans.
