The World of Skin was a project springing out of the American group Swanswhich was a collaboration between the core Swans members Michael Gira and Jarboe. The project was initially called Skinwith the first two albums being released under that name, the last one being released under the name the World of Skin.
In the UK, the first two 1000 Years - Skin - The World Of Skin were released by Product Inc. Swans' album Greed began a trend toward greater use of melody, and this trend continued with the later Children of God. The work performed as Skin was initially in marked contrast with the less overtly melodic but contemporaneous Swans 1000 Years - Skin - The World Of Skin , but later Swans work integrated the two aspects.
Blood, Women, Roses was the project's first release and featured vocals entirely by Jarboe, who had previously mainly been performing backing vocals. Many of the tracks still featured the monumental use of percussion that was common in earlier Swans work, but combined this with a greater use of melody "Red Rose" is typical of this.
Blood, Women, Roses was followed in by Shame, Humility, Revengewhich featured vocals by Michael Gira although Jarboe did perform some backing vocals. This album featured vocals from both performers, including a cover of Nick Drake 's "Black-Eyed Dog" that was performed by Jarboe.
