With 15 studio albums, countless shows, & tours under his belt Metal veteran Norman Skinner has made a name for himself as a force to be reckoned within the Metal world. Dubbed the Metal Chameleon by members of the press, Skinner possesses a very wide range and utilizes it in a unique style to effortlessly switch between the beautiful and the brutal. Norman Skinner started his musical career in the mid 90’s joining American Power Metal band "Tramontane". He recorded his 1st album “December Dark” with the band in 1998 before moving on to form "Machine.Called.Man" whom he would later release an album with as well. Honing his skills over the next few years Skinner was asked to join the already established Thrash band Imagika. Skinner gained notoriety as one of the premier power\thrash vocalists and went on to record 4 albums with the band before departing in 2010. After his departure from Imagika, Norman Skinner launched 3 new projects. 1st joining Sci-Fi Power Metallers "Dire Peril" whom he recorded 3 albums with before parting ways in 2015. Norman went on to launch a solo band together with some of his ex-Imagika band-mates using his namesake "SKINNER". The band has since released 2 albums and a 3rd is slotted for a 2018 release. As if that wasn't enough to keep Mr. Skinner busy in 2011 he began a very successful collaboration with powerhouse David Garcia from the band "Cage" forming the popular project "Hellscream". Their debut album was released in 2013 & the follow-up titled "Hate Machine" to be released in 2018.

2015 marked yet another new chapter for Mr. Skinner as he joined the new Power Metal project "Niviane". The debut album titled "The Druid King" was released in 2017. Norman Skinner continues to delight fans and critics alike with each studio release and live performance. Fans can look forward to new releases from Skinner, Hellscream & Niviane.
