The fiery fiddle of O’Death violinist Robert Pycior leads Skeletonbreath, a trio that combines Pycior’s strings with the low-end rumble and punishing, straightforward rhythms of mid-’90s alt-rock. Pycior’s violin work combines progressive rock leads with discordant keys, neoclassical melodies, and worldly flavor.
