We had a really pleasant surprise yesterday.
Our very own Bass Viking was digging into the latest edition of BASS GUITAR magazine, issue 87.
After some time dribbling over the latest Stingrays, Matt stumbled on an amazing review of our Debut Album!
The mag rewarded ‘It’s come to this’ 5/5 and 3/5 for Bass (keep Practicing Matt lol)
Thanks Very much Guys! you can buy a copy of the magazine here: http://www.bassguitarmagazine.com/
This album from Leicester power trio SKAM is sure to please aficionados of 80′s rock and metal. With song titles like “Soliders of Rock”, “Dead from the waist down” and “The touch of death” the boys aren’t exactly shying away from their heavy metal heritage, and nor should they. What you’ve got here is 10 tracks of unapologetically muscular rock that, while maybe uncool to the NME crowd, deserves to be heard by a much wider audience. The intro to album opener”Soliders of Rock” has echoes of Priest and Dio, before the guys kick into a chugging groove with a contemporary edge. The musicianship is top notch throughout, especially Ray “Xray” Peverill’s frantic drumming and the tasty guitar work of Steve Hill. Bassist Matt Gilmore keeps things tight and solid, but gets to step out on the intro to “Massacre” with a meandering bass line that would make Geezer Butler proud. There’s no filler here, just a great album from start to finish that should appeal to any fans of melodic hard rock.
5 out of 5
Welcome back, we hope all our SKAM friends around the globe have had a great time over the festive period. We have!
Copious amounts of Turkey, Cheese, sprouts and Beer have been consumed but now its time to get lean and fighting fit ready for the new year!
So what have we got planned for you this year ? Im glad you asked!
We are hard at work piecing together the year plan and we intend to head out and hit as many cities as possible in the next 12 months.
Think we may be missing you out? – message us on Facebook and tell us so! CLICK HERE keep your eyes on the site for all gig announcements!
We hope to be named on some high profile shows too so watch this space
We have a new Single coming out early in the year and we are set to film a Video in the next few weeks. Its going to be great!
We have also been working hard at SKAM HQ writing new songs. Most of you will have now heard Rivers and Holy city and we have been really pleased by people’s reactions. We currently have around 7 songs done and more works inn progress than you can shake a stick at.
I dont want to get ahead of myself but if all goes well then perhaps we may need to book some studio time ?!?!?
We hope you are all in fine voice! Keep your eyes peeled for further announcements!
See you down the front
Just a quick message to congratulate our very own Bass viking for being included in last issue of Bass player magazine.
Matt is a long time fan of the publication and this will make him very happy!
Nice to see him getting the recognition he deserves!
SKAM are so very proud to announce that the World famous Marshall Amplification have agreed to endorse Steve for our fast approaching UK tour with BONAFIDE this November.
Steve is a passionate Marshall devotee who has used his Marshall JVM for every live show since 2010.
For Steve its a pretty big deal and he is overjoyed, Marshall are associated with all his heroes, Angus, Slash, and many many more. They are synonymous with Rock and Roll and now our very own Rock Ninja!
“I am so proud to be associated with such an iconic company, I could never achieve my sound with out the unequalled ‘Kerrrang’ of a marshall head! Its so great that in an industry thats so harsh they are still prepared to help us out on our journey up the ladder!”
Thank you Marshall, you really do rock!
