Album Review

Predating many ‘90s competitors, Skrew deserve credit for hopping on the bandwagon early and helping to forge the punishing guitar and drum attack of ‘90s industrial-metal. This 1991 debut showcases the many abilities of Skrew's central figure Adam Grossman. The singer/guitarist/programmer blends quality guitar riffing, regimentally abusive drum tracks and searing vocals into a single violent assault. Critics and fans noticed Grossman's talent for postmodern audio torture as Burning in Water, Drowning in Flames posted solid sales and many positive reviews. Highlight tracks include the hardly recognizable deconstruction of the Rolling Stones classic "Sympathy for the Devil" and the eviscerated funk of "Charlemagne." Skrew lived up to the hype when they released their follow-up Dusted years later, but shifting musical sands and Grossman's eventual power-metal regression kept the group from ascending beyond their cult status. Dusted and this debut are certainly the band's best work, well deserving the attention of fans fascinated by the industrial-metal genre.

Customer Reviews

Very unique!!! I loved It!!!

Burning in water, Drowning in flame is a great song! Buy It!!! SKREW ROCKS!!! Too bad there not a band anymore!

A Classic!

Buy this album and listen to it 10 times beginning to end before coming to any conclusions... This ranks in my top 10 industrial/metal albums of all time without a doubt. Absolutely brilliant!

Underrated sincere industrial metal

The metallic machine-like riffs, fat sounding drum programming, ugly harsh distorted vocals, great electronic programming, sampling, freaking sampling, I miss that. I wish more bands would do more sampling, seems like only a 80's and early 90's thing... Now this isn't perfect, though I think one of the best traditional industrial metal albums. Definitely for the fans of Fear Factory and Ministry.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s

Formed in Texas sometime around 1990, Skrew represented the vision of guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Adam Grossman, and despite being referred to as a band, the group was more of a solo expression of Grossman's affinity for what would become known as industrial metal. The genre was still being forged during the early '90s and Grossman deserves credit for shaping the direction and identity of a music form that made similar artists like Nine Inch Nails and White Zombie huge stars. While timely and stylistically...
