Massacre Week!

Wow, what a week! Since the release of our third single Massacre last Monday things have gotten seriously crazy!

Massacre released worldwide Monday 4th March, download only. Classic Rock Magazine.com had exclusive first play of the crime fighting smash hit video.

The single has been played on XFM by the very awesome, Ian Camfield.

Included in Kerrang! magazines Essential Playlist Of The Week (issue 1456.) They said “Fact: If you say the words ‘SKAM’ three times in the mirror, these Leicester rockers will appear behind you playing Massacre until your face explodes! So do it, ’cause it’s good! And who needs a face anyway?”

Played on Kerrang! Radio by Matt Stocks, who said “great band, great rock ‘n’ roll music”

Added to the Planet Rock playlist with a little help from the SKAM fanbase!

Bass Guitar Magazine

Issue 87

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 “X-Ray” 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.

SKAM gets five star review!

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:  www.bassguitarmagazine.com

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 icon wink Hello New Year!

We have a new single coming out early in the year and we are set to film a video in the next few weeks, which is 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 seven songs done and more works in 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! Keep your eyes peeled for further announcements!
