SKINMASK’s addictive melodies and anthematic hooks are served up by multi-lingual vocalist Laz, with his gritty angst. The dual guitar power consists of Mike T-Dog Trenholm on Lead, and FossFace on Rhythm. The bottom end pulsates through the thundering fingers of Bassist and founding member, Christophe Liglet, who also programs the primal and intoxicating electronica driving every song. All things percussive are handled by timekeeper Jimmy Wooten on drums. His hard-hitting rock and tribal rhythms are punctuated by a cool yet primal playing style.
Skinmask has been described as metal, pop, rock, dance, industrial, and any other number of the things, but the one thing it is not, is boring. With wicked vocals that make you want to sing along, bass lines that guide the rhythmic patterns of blood flow, guitar riffs that electrify every nerve, and drums that set the body in motion to the beat of war, this sound is addictively infectious. As one fan put it, it can be described as tribal, intense, and fun.
