||THE SKULL RECRUIT TWO NEW GUITARISTS
20th April 2012
The Skull at Sweden Rock
The Skull, the new band formed by two original members of doom Metal legends Trouble — vocalist Eric Wagner and drummer Jeff 'Oly' Olson — alongside the band's longtime bassist, Ron Holzner, will be hitting the road throughout the United States and Europe this Summer and Fall playing all of Trouble's classics.
The Skull have recruited guitarists Lothar Keller and Michael Carpenter of the Chicago, Illinois-based progressive power Metallers Sacred Dawn. Glen Drover (Megadeth, King Diamond, Teatament), who was previously announced as a guest touring guitarist on The Skull's upcoming tour, will not be able to join the band on the road due to scheduling conflicts.
