It’s with great pleasure that we reveal the sick and gory cover art for the debut album by Portuguese old school Death Metal outfit Ruttenskalle.

This cover artwork and additional drawings (which can be found on the CD layout) were created by Daniel Cabrera (Dan’s Putrid Art).

“Skin ’em Alive” is a relentless, straight forward Death Metal assault and a total Swedish sound worshiping for fans of Carnage, God Macabre, Dismember and early Entombed.

Pre-orders, track premiere and release date to be announced soon.


It’s time to reveal one more Gruesome Records release. Ruttenskalle arises deep from the entrails of the Portuguese underground scene to unleash a rotting, filthy, violent and straight forward piece of old school Death Metal played in the Swedish style. “Skin ’em Alive” is the debut album by this solo outfit led by Paulo M. Soares and will surely please to fans of Carnage, God Macabre, Dismember and Entombed.

To sum things up, expect some in-your-face true Metal of death filled with hooks, gory lyrics and demonic vocal enchantments that will haunt your deepest nightmares!

Cover art, song premiere, track list, pre-orders and release date to announce soon!
