The Return Of TIM SKOLD

After stints with KMFDM, MARILYN MANSON and SKOLD VS. KMFDM as producer/songwriter/guitarist/bassist, Tim Skold will return this spring with his first full-length solo album in 15 years. Delivering a snarky CD single prelude on April 12, setting the stage for a May 10 full album release, SKOLD steps up once again, supplying sonic solvent for the huffing social cynics.

Gestating through production and composition with such artists as KMFDM and MARILYN MANSON, producing feats like the #1 Billboard-charting album "The Golden Age Of Grotesque" (featuring the song "mOBSCENE", which was nominated for a Grammy Award for "Best Metal Performance") and the critically acclaimed "Eat Me, Drink Me", Skold arrived prodigiously throughout 2009, having dispatched the album SKOLD VS. KMFDM and three new solo teaser tracks — "I Will Not Forget", "Bullets Ricochet" and "A Dark Star" — garnished with validation by accolades of TV placement in shows like "NCIS" and "FlashForward", and rabid fan consumption.

The product of an active 2010, the May album and its first single, "Suck", are munitions ready to go and renowned label Metropolis Records has signed on as gunner to make sure those salvos hit on target. The April CD single raises a flag taken up by cohorts and allies like COMBICHRIST, KMFDM, 16VOLT and FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY, who have shown up to contribute their own remixes of the track.

Always one to fight on all fronts, 2010-turn-2011 will also see Skold continuing with the new Scandinavian metal/hard rock supergroup DOCTOR MIDNIGHT AND THE MERCY CULT. Already finished recordings with the lineup of underground heroes Hank von Hell (TURBONEGRO), Anders Odden (CELTIC FROST, SATYRICON), Audun Stengel (APOPTYGMA BERZERK) and David Husvik (EXTOL) look set to form an album band of brothers in the new year.
