The latest edition of The Loaded Radio Podcast is now available and this week’s show features Scott Penfold in conversation with Benji Webbe, frontman for reggae/metal fusion pioneers SKINDRED.
For those unaware, SKINDRED are a Welsh reggae/dub infused heavy metal band who formed in Newport, Wales, in 1998. The band also embrace elements of punk, hardcore punk, dancehall, jungle, ska, hip hop, drum and bass, dubstep, and various other influences into their music. Known for their incredible live performances, SKINDRED have won several awards including “Best Live Band” at the 2011 UK Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards and the “Devotion Award” at the 2011 Kerrang! Awards.
7 albums in with another on the way, this band is a relentless attack of sonic crunch and hypnotic rhythm that needs to be experienced. In the talk, Benji discusses what SKINDRED have been up to, that one time he sang for KORN, his side-project with METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo and tons more!
The second half of the podcast has Loaded Radio’s Johnny Rude joining Scott Penfold live from Las Vegas to talk about what’s going on this week in hard rock and metal, in particularly a little band named VAN HALEN.
