Start your engines, ladies and gentlemen: nothing’s off limits for these Welsh ragga rock / metal pioneers SKINDRED and their seventh album Big Tings! Roaring and pounding, the follow-up to 2015’s Volume is a magnificent beast churning out heavy, distortion-laden riff punches melting into vocalist Benji Webbe’s frenzied rapping. Explosive metal and punk material rubs shoulders with smooth melodies – and of course SKINDRED wouldn’t leave us on the dancefloor without a hefty helping of their trademark Godzilla-esquely huge choruses. Since 1998, SKINDRED has been responsible for developing their own unique sound blending elements of Metal, Rock, Reggae, dancehal, and electronica to forge the SKINDRED sound as we know it today.
Forget everything you know about music. Forget the conventional, forget inviable gender roles, free yourself from old expectations, spit in the face of everything mundane, and get on board a speeding train with four misfits on a fearless pursuit of DIY or death. Genre? Dancehall, fyyah! Punk, hey ho! Rock, hell yeah! Sumo Cyco are everything you’ve heard and nothing you’ve heard before at once: chaotic guitar, anthemic sing-along choruses, and vocals from sweet to Sever. Sumo Cyco are more than what you hear. Sumo Cyco is a feeling.
A Voodoo Doctor “The Doctor” came across a girl who looked lost and scared. He used his magic to turn her into a doll, but his spell was disrupted from her terrifying and taunting screams, she remained half human, half doll. As Raven lived in the dark world of the Doctor, she secretly learned his magic and conjured up a demon, Muppet, who she made her eternal protector and trapped him inside her heart. The Doctor and Muppet created Stitches to search for those who are looking to join our dark metal carnival world in the 13th hour.
