|During the 1990's
Skintrade enjoyed huge sucess in Sweden and abroad, particularly
in Scandinavia, Holland, Germany and Belgium. During this
period the band toured extensively in Europe and played
some of Europe's biggest festivals such as Dynamo Open Air
(Holland) and MTV's Rock Am Ring (Germany) to name a few.
Skintrade also toured around Europe supporting bands as
Motorhead, Danish rockers DAD and the Irish band Therapy?.
The debut album "Skintrade" released in 1993,
recieved an overwhelmingly positive response by the press
and the public. The singles "Sick As A Dog" and
"One by One" got frequent airplay, and the videos
aired on heavy rotation on MTV's Headbangers Ball. The band
also received the Zeppelin-Award for best Rock act and a
nomination for best video at the Swedish Grammy awards.
The follow-up "Roachpowder", produced by Thomas
Skogsberg (Entombed, Hellacopters etc), was released in
1995. This collaboration allowed the band to explore a darker,
heavier side. Again, the videos for the songs "Snap
goes your mind" as well as "Flies", were
repeatedly aired on MTV. Now, the Swedish hard rockers Skintrade
are back with their third studio album "Refueled"
set to be released on February 28th, 2014. The first single
"Monster" will be released in January in advance.
This is the band's first full-length studio album since
"Roach Powder" released in 1995 and the best of
album "Past and Present" in 2012 which included
three new songs.
Swedish Producer/Engineer Oscar Ammer (Social Pretender, The Moving, Human Desolation) was chosen to co-produce and mix the album. The album was recorded in Skintrade's studio and mixed in Oscar Ammer's studio Echobox Audio Production. "Refueled" packs 12 stunningly powerful songs that will place Skintrade in an undisputed position as a Hard Rock/Metal band to be reckoned with.
