Biography

For more than ten years, Skein has delivered its own blend of atmospheric metal.

After three EP releases, the Finnish five-piece released its debut album Of Wings Unfolding (available also via Spotify) in 2014.

The concept album - released alongside with a novel telling the story behind the songs - received positive reviews and feedback both from live audiences and media.

Currently working on the material for their second album, the band releases Rapier, a digital single to introduce their new guitarist Hiski Marstio and to make a determined statement about the band's vitality in 2016.
