NEWS: Skinflint

The traditional heavy metal act Skinflint (Botswana) will have its new album out on Pure Steel Records in July. For now, here is some information. There will be more about Skinflint in this publication.
Skinflint
Chief of the Ghosts
release date: July 7th, 2017
label: Pure Steel Records
Skinflint is a three piece Heavy Metal band from Gaborone, Botswana. They have incorporated elements from African culture with Heavy Metal music, attracting the attention of international media. Their releases Iklwa, Gauna, Dipoko and Nyemba pay homage to ancestral beliefs and African spirituality, while still playing in the vein of Traditional Heavy Metal. The band has headlined shows across Africa, and enjoyed successful tours as far as Sweden.
The release date of the new album „Chief Of The Ghosts" by the Heavy Metal Band SKINFLINT from Botswana on CD is July 7th, 2017. SKINFLINT from Botswana, a country that is not well known for traditional Metal or Rock in general, already can be considered to one of the old guards on our label. Very rightly, albums like „Iklwa“ (2010) and „Dipoko“ (2012) are small classics nowadays in the underground. A perfect combination between traditional Heavy/Epic Metal and decent African folk music. The trio around Giuseppe „Juice“ Sbrana continues with their old tradition also on the fifth long player „Chief Of The Ghosts“. Rough and simple, yet with much sensitivity for the decent exotic touch, there are nine new songs, again partly sung in their native language Setswana. Those who already love the predecessors won’t be disappointed with „Chief Of The Ghosts“ at all.
