THE SKULL, featuring original TROUBLE vocalist Eric Wagner alongside longtime TROUBLE bassist Ron Holzner, has been steamrolling right along ever since their inception at Wisconsin's ‘Days Of The Doomed Fest’ back in 2011. With two riff-laden, immense albums in the form of 2014’s “For Those Which Are Asleep” and 2018’s “The Endless Road Turns Dark” under their belt, THE SKULL has consistently toured with everyone from SAINT VITUS to CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, graced the stages of such monumental fests as ‘Psycho Vegas’ and ‘Roadburn’, and has generally kept a high profile presence on US soil as well as Europe. In short, THE SKULL get shit done!
In just a few short weeks, The Skull will once again venture across the pond for yet another headlining slot at Germany’s prestigious ‘Hammer Of Doom Fest’. But before they leave, the lucky fans of Milwaukee, WI will be able to experience a very unique “warm up” show that hasn’t been done before. THE SKULL will perform two full sets: one covering instant Doom classics from The Skull, and the other celebrating 40 years of TROUBLE. You can bet your ass you are in for one hell of a heavy evening if you’re lucky to live in or near the beer capital of the nation.
I recently had the opportunity to bend the ear of both Eric and Ron for a bit, and here is what transpired...
THE SKULL play Walker’s Point Music Hall in Milwaukee, WI on Saturday, November 09th, 2019. If you haven’t already secured your ticket for this soon to be historic show, you can do so now by visiting www.DaysOfTheDoomed.com.
Big thanks to Eric Wagner and Ron Holzner for letting me shoot the breeze with them. See you all in Milwaukee.
