## THE SKULL only
THE SKULL is a musical collaboration founded by three former members of American doom metal legends Trouble — vocalist Eric Wagner, bassist Ron Holzner, and drummer Jeff “Oly” Olson — and guitarist Lothar Keller (Sacred Dawn). Formed in 2011 to “continue the sounds and spirit of Trouble – past, present, future,” THE SKULL released their critically lauded debut, For Those Which Are Asleep, in 2014 via Tee Pee Records. Four years later saw The Endless Road Turns Black, also through Tee Pee Records. Louder Sound praised a, “veritable doom supergroup, expertly blending the soulful American blue-collar doom rock approach with the more mystical, macabre European tradition,” while Metal Injection gushed, “The crushing forward motion and roaring bottom end that has come to define this band is thrilling and the way that THE SKULL swagger forth speaks to a band who have a deep understanding of heavy metal as a greater entity.” THE SKULL currently features Wagner, Holzner, Keller, guitarist Matt Goldsborough (Pentagram), and Henry Vasquez (Saint Vitus).
