Z Records have announced the signing of the Swedish act SOULSKINNER.

Formed only twelve months ago by former STEEL ATTACK members Dennis Westman and Patrick Spath, SOULSKINNER combine metal with melody in a manner rarely heard during recent years. Drawing influences from past hard rock and metal legends, SOULSKINNER have recorded "a possible modern-day classic," according to a press release.

The signing of the band also sees the return of one of Z's former recording artists to the label's roster. Thomas Thorsen will be remembered by many for his colossal vocal work with DAMNED NATION and fans of his previous work will not be disappointed.


Thomas Thorsen (ex-DAMNED NATION) - Vocals
Dennis Westman (ex-STEEL ATTACK, CARNAL FORGE) - Guitar
Petri Kuusisto (CARNAL FORGE, ASPERITY) - Guitar
Patrick "Schweinsteiger" Späth (STEEL ATTACK) - Bass
Rickard Holmgren (SCAAR, ex-VANESSA) - Drums

SOULSKINNER's debut album is scheduled for an April release.
