The versatile and energetic Matti Alfonzetti
returns to the scene of one of his most loved bands – Sweden’s Skintrade
. Back together during 2011, the band released their third album Refueled last year.
If that was a good solid album, then this is a great album! Once again, Matti crafts some fine aggressive hard rock tunes and turns then melodic with his powerful vocals.
With one foot in the past and one in the present, Skintrade’s
new album is a mesh of modern rock and slick production, and classic Scandi driving hard rock.
Production is quite superb here – the mixing of styles is done seamlessly – with a cracking rhythm section pushing Matti to his vocal best.
