Marketing Highlights

SKYCLAD is a British heavy metal band formed in 1990 in their home town of Newcastle Upon Tyne. Since their inception, SKYCLAD have created songs out of a highly original and influential sound mixing heavy metal and traditional folk. Their lyrics have been generally permeated by political, social and environmental matters and the new album seems to be no exception as vocalist Kevin Ridley comments : "The songs are about politics, the environment and the music business and so on. These are mixed with the standard SKYCLAD fayre of traditional bawdy/drinking type of songs and songs with blues and more 'ethnic' feels." "Forward into the past" painted artwork by Duncan Storr (who previously drew paintings for EDGE OF SANITY, RAGE and HAWKING album covers : myweb.tiscali.co.uk) displays the mesmerizing face of a man made out of trees and branches also as Kevin Ridley elaborates : "the 'green man' or 'storyteller' image used here is a traditional image (from Roman times at least in the UK) which is usually taken as 'showing the close interdependence between man and nature" That natural feel is also largely expressed in the album production : "I think the new album sounds, warm, natural and 'real' " SKYCLAD celebrate their grand return with "Forward Into The Past" on April 28th on Listenable and it promises a selection of catchy and memorable songs !.
