Just discovered a pretty cool underground modern trash metal/hardcore band on my trip to Germany, so have to share a few words about Dresden based Skipdown alongside some pics of their latest gig at School’s Out Dresden Open Air.
It’s not quite true I just discovered them, I know the guys forever, just never got the chance to see them live! They formed their first band Experiment 13 – punk(ish) at that time – ages ago and turned into metal Skipdown just in 2009. They released their first record “Pathetic Fanatic” which is free for download on their website.
Much more grown up than back in the punk days I was quite impressed how bad-ass they are on stage now. I enjoyed powerful guitar riffs and a very, very angry singer. Understandably over the last couple of years the guys played a good amount of gigs all over Germany and even made it down to Italy. I wouldn’t mind to see them at home in the UK soon, so I hope we will get something arranged in London sometime this year. I’m also very exited to listen to their new album they already started working on.
