Thought I'd dig out some older stuff I'd not listened to in a while, and Keratose was one of the bands. They were a local band terrorising the metal scene round Essex a few years back. After they split I got together with the singer/bassist and one of the guitarists to form a band called Promise No Lies that some of you may remeber I posted a couple of (extremely) rough recordings of a couple of years back at

Anyway, extremely brutal metal with a very varied list of influences. The drummer still changes the tracks up on the site every now and then:

They're also the only band I know of to ever get a piggyback mosh pit going...
