Skyclad

Profile:
Skyclad was formed in 1990 by Martin Walkyier (recently departed from Sabbat (2)) and Steve Ramsey with a view to create the "ultimate pagan metal band". Skyclad are considered by many to be pioneers of folk metal; their earlier work is characterized by Thrash - not entirely dissimilar to Walkier's previous band Sabbat, albeit with ever increasing Folk influences. On later albums the band progressed away from their Thrash roots and became gradually more Folk-influenced, settling into a style more akin to early Heavy Metal.

Founder member Martin Walkyier departed the band in 2001, leaving Rhythm guitarist and longtime producer Kevin Ridley to take over vocal duties.
