theskullband2014new_638Fan-filmed video footage of The Skull — the new band featuring two original members of American doom metal legends Trouble, Eric Wagner (vocals) and Jeff “Oly” Olson (drums), alongside longtime Trouble bassist Ron Holzner, guitarist Lothar Keller (Sacred Dawn) and former Pentaram guitarist Matt Goldsborough — performing on October 10 at the Day Of Doom festival in Barcelona, Spain can be seen below.

The Skull released its debut album, “For Those Which Are Asleep”, on November 4 via Tee Pee Records.

The last tour dates for this year are listed below. Maybe they play somewhere in your area, if so … go see them live.

Written and recorded this past spring, “For Those Which Are Asleep” is the first full-length album to feature Wagner, Holzner and Olson since the 1995 release of Trouble‘s critically acclaimed LP “Plastic Green Head”. The new record’s greatest strength is how well it captures the apocalyptic trudge that Trouble delivered from the first downbeat of their 1984 debut, but now unequivocally propelled by the hallmarks of a hungry new band fueled by new blood. The mighty voice of Wagner is on full display; the vocalist proving on “For Those Which Are Asleep” that he still wields an eerie power at the mic. Titanic riffs abound as Keller and Goldsborough weave ominous atmospheres over the molten, crushing core of Holzner and Olson‘s sinister strut
