SKYCLAD ‘Live At The Dynamo’ (NMC Music 2002)

Taken from two Dynamo festivals - in ’92 and ’95 - this represents the classic Skyclad line-up with Martin Wylkier on vocals. It is heavy metal but with a twist - they have a fiddle player! This adds a very folky feel to many of the songs and also adds depth to the songs.

‘Another Fine Mess’ is a rollicking rocker - Wylkier’s vocal is very gritty in style, not unlike Lemmy! ‘Art Nazi’ is another heads down rocker and the fiddle playing almost feels like a lead guitar, such is the pace it is played at. The guitars are right up in the mix and for a live album the sound quality is very clear.

‘Spinning Jenny’ is one of their more well known numbers and this highlights how well the band blended guitar power with fiddle music. A high note to end the CD on. ‘Just What Nobody Wanted’, features keyboards underlining some great guitar work. Once you get used to Wylkier’s vocal style you will enjoy this greatly. If you like metal with a folk twist, give this a listen.
