SongVault Artist Profile
Adelaide SA, Australia
Power metal lives. Skintilla is here to prove to the masses that classic metal flavours live on. With talent this big backing the genre, there's no way it could do anything but soar. Skintilla unleashes headbanging grooves, delicious metal melodies and perfectly executed instrumentals and vocals as it paves the way for the heavy metal renaissance.
GOOD METAL SONGS
With Skintilla, it all comes down to devotion to the art. These musicians' highest goal is the delivery of solid, irresistible metal music for all the hungry ears out there. “We are dedicated to writing good metal songs, to trying to maintain a standard of originality and to writing songs that both we and the metal world enjoy.” And once the songs are written and polished up, Skintilla has equal dedication to its stage act, with a goal of being able “to perform the songs well live, no matter if it is in front of 10 or 10,000 people.”
WORLD CLASS ACT
If anybody has success encoded in their genes, its these metal masters. “We are inspired by the opportunity to become a world class act, stemming from a working class Australian band and by our own energy, emotions and with what is going on around us at any given time.” In other words, these musicians are dedicated to facing life head on, confronting it on their own terms and making it to the top. The talent and musicianship for leader-of-the-pack success is supremely present here. The future is nothing but possibilities.
THE ARTIST AT WORK
Skintilla's EP “Shedding Skin” brought the band acclaim with the opening track's nomination as best heavy metal song in the high profile Musicoz awards. The song was also featured on the “Knuckle Tracks” CD compilation. “Trust” was the third most-played song for the “Powersurge” 3D radio metal show, with the group nabbing second-most played local band honours. Tour planning is in the works and Skintilla has 13 hot-off-the-griddle songs ready for recording; pre-production is under way. Skintilla is currently working with A&R Select, the leading A&R firm in Hollywood, CA.
“Power metal? Truly. It's a challenging genre but Skintilla is more than up to the task.”
“Skintilla is an Australian band who have blown me away with this 6-song E.P . I wouldn't be surprised to see Skintilla as a major player in the next few years.”
