Leather Glove are a solo project from San Francisco, California that plays a mixture of sludge, crust, grindcore and death metal and this is a review of his 2016 demo "Skin On Glass" which was released by Sentinent Ruin Laboratories.
A very fast and brutal grindcore sound starts off the demo bringing in blast beats along with some deep death metal growls a few seconds later and you can also hear a great amount of crust punk elements throughout the recording and the music also brings in a great amount of mid 80's and early 90's influences.
When the music slows down it brings in more of a sludge and doom/death metal style while t he solos and leads are very dark and melodic and while the first song was very fast the other 2 stick to a slower direction while also having its fast moments and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and you can also hear a brief use of drones.
Leather Glove plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in sludge and doom/death metal while also having some crust and grind elements, the production sounds very dark, raw, h eavy and old school while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Leather Glove are a very great sounding mixture of crust, crust, sludge, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Rods of Steel". 8 out of 10.
