THE SKULL features original Trouble member vocalist Eric Wagner alongside longtime former Trouble bassist Ron Holzner with guitarist Lothar Keller (Sacred Dawn), drummer Brian Dixon (Cathedral) and guitarist Rob Wrong (Witch Mountain). The Skull is made up of a group of very talented members whose main goal is to bring back the unique sound of American doom metal band “Trouble," and will be performing 1990's titular self-titled LP on this run. For the Richmond show, their southernmost, they'll be joined by heavy mainstays DRUGLORD and one more TBA very soon!

The Skull
The Skull
The Skull are a doom metal band from Chicago, IL, founded in 2012 by former Trouble (5) members Eric Wagner (vocals), Ron Holzner (bass), and Jeff "Oly" Olson (drums), along with guitarists Lothar Keller and Michael Carpenter of the metal band Sacred Dawn. The band's original purpose was to perform Trouble's early material (they took their moniker from the name of Trouble's second LP) but eventually decided to moved forward with original material. Oly dropped out in 2012 and was replaced first by Brad Sabathne and then Kevin Tarpey before returning to the group in 2013. Michael Carpenter left the group in 2014 and was replaced briefly by one-time Trouble bassist Chuck Robinson before guitarist Matt Goldsborough joined the fold. The Skull released their first LP in late 2014. In January 2015, Oly step aside again as his job with Allagash Brewery prohibited him from touring.
