Kill the Power

I have a confession.

I sometimes listen to music other than heavy metal.

Metal has always been and will always be my favourite, but there’s actually very little music I won’t listen to, at least occasionally. Even one or two country songs.

Which brings us to this month’s artist: Skindred. The best way to describe their sound would be “ragga-metal-punk-hip-hop”. They have a unique sound that even manages to appeal to metalheads, who usually bolt at the first whiff of anything that smells vaguely like nu-metal. And their mostly light-hearted lyrics can make their music a welcome break when the random play puts them on after a long run of stuff like Arch Enemy, Slayer, and Meshuggah.
