SKINNER


BIO: Taking its name from their lead singer... "SKINNER" was formed from the fallout of the now defunct PowerThrash band Imagika in late 2010. Guitarists Robert Kolowitz , Grant Kolowitz, Bassist Jim Pegram, Drummer Ramon Ochoa, & Vocalist Norman Skinner made up the original “SKINNER” line-up through the final months of 2010-2011 before recruiting bassist Elena Repetto to fill the void from Jim Pegram’s departure in the spring of 2011. The 5 members spent the 1st half of 2011 writing the songs for the fledgling band and playing live often. In May of 2011 the band entered Fang Recording Studios to begin recording their 1st effort “The Enemy Within”. The EP would consist of the 1st 5 songs written by the band and would be self-released. In October 2011 "SKINNER" concluded the mixingmastering for their 5-Song EP "The Enemy Within” and released the album world-wide on April 24th 2012. For the song “Breathe the Lie”, guitarist Alfred San Miguel was brought into the studio to lend a solo to track and weeks later was invited to perform with the band live. The 3 guitar attack added new dimensions and layers to the band’s sound and the group decided to test the waters as a 6 piece until finally announcing Alfred’s addition to SKINNER in April 2012. Shortly after this announcement the band decided to part ways with drummer Ramon Ochoa and just months later announced the addition of Noe Luna to the bands ranks. “SKINNER” has only been in existence for a short while and has already established a solid reputation as one of the premier unsigned Metal acts in the bay area. They've played shows all around the bay area including surrounding areas in Northern & Central California. "SKINNER" has begun to test the waters outside of California by playing shows in Reno & Las Vegas, NV as well. The band is currently writing for their full length debut album "Sleepwalkers" due out 2013, performing often and pursuing a label deal for this new band.
