Skinlab (1995-present): a Nu-Metal band from San Francisco, California, USA.
teev Esquivel (vocals/bass), Mike Roberts (guitar), Gary Wendt (guitar) and Paul Hopkins (drums) came together in 1995 to form Skinlab, a skater friendly ultra heavy metal act with Alternative rock leanings. With help from the fellows of Machine Head, Skinlab got themselves a deal with 'Century Media' to release their debut set Bound, Gagged And Blindfolded in 1997. The subsequent touring, however, was too much for Roberts and Wendt who left. But there was no problem signing new recruits up for Scott Sargeant (ex-Killing Culture) and Snake (ex-Skrew) replaced the incumbents soon after. Indeed, the prospects for the act went from good to better when the new guys joined in to make the sound heavier and more mature for the Eyesore EP (1998) and Disembody: The New Flesh (1999).Glen Telford took over where Sargeant left off for the follow-up, reVoltingRoom (2002).
