Skinher is the heavy metal project and brainchild of Kyle Skinher (aka Haris from prog metal pioneers HAIL SPIRIT NOIR), formed in 2021. Inspired by titans of the past such as EUROPE or Y. J. MALMSTEEN, and gifted newbies such as GHOST, SKINHER write vigorous melodic songs unfolding horror stories set in past decades. Though heavy metal is at their core, along with powerful guitars and a solid rhythm section, their songs also showcase a variety of pop and prog elements, mainly through Cons Marg‘s distinctive vocal and the vintage synths by Kyle.
