Quotes

“Fading Before The Sun – UK hard rock trio SKAM return with this machine gun dose of heavy-hitting gusto. Lyrically it’s all guns, horses, vultures and other Southern cowboy/deserty images, but sonically it’s no-nonsense, chord-crunching rock meat. Watch out for the full new album, due in November.” – Classic Rock Magazine

“Skam are a classic power-trio – ballsy, big, loud – but that doesn’t mean they have to be mindless. Third album, The Amazing Memoirs of Geoffrey Goddard, is a bit more ambitious than the usual new British rock. A concept album about a test pilot from 1935 ‘who is a victim of strange forces that jolt him through time’, the album artwork, videos and booklets will help tell his tale as he battles to return home and at times, for his very sanity.” – Classic Rock Magazine

“Very big and very loud (you wouldn’t think there are only three of them), this Leicester troupe blend Clutch-esque grooviness with a dash of stoner fuzz and lashings of classic rock-based riffage on Between The Eyes. Nice.” – Classic Rock Magazine
