The Skull is a heavy metal band founded by three former members of Trouble, vocalist Eric Wagner, bassist Ron Holzner and drummer Jeff "Oly" Olson. In May 2012, Olson departed from The Skull due to his desire to "wait for a real Trouble reunion with original members or not play Trouble's music at all." However, on August 19th, 2013 Olson rejoined The Skull stating, "I want to rock again."  The Skull performs a large portion of Trouble's first two pioneering doom metal albums; Psalm 9 and self-titled The Skull; and perform a large catalogue of several other Trouble classics. 
The Skull headlined the Hell's Pleasure festival in Pößneck, Germany in July 2012 alongside NWOBHM band Angel Witch. In late August and early September 2012, The Skull completed a tour of the US East coast and finished that trek by headlining the SHOD Fest (Stoner Hand Of Doom) in New London, Connecticut. The Skull toured Europe in late 2012, including co-headlining the Hammer of Doom festival with the band Pentagram. This European tour also included performances in Germany, Netherlands, Austria, and Sweden, among others.
The Skull have been writing and performing new original material and have scheduled a West coast tour of the US for late 2013. Part of this tour will be headlining the Denver Doom Fest.
On March 5, 2014, former Trouble bassist Chuck Robinson joined the band as the guitarist. Over a month later, it was announced that Robinson had exited the band in order to focus on "his demanding professional career", and former Pentagram guitarist Matt Goldsborough would be his replacement.
On August 24, 2014, the band announced that their debut album, titled For Those Which Are Asleep, would be released on November 4 through Tee Pee Records.
It doesn’t take much to guess the style of a band called Sasquatch, especially when you learn their music has appeared on Sons Of Anarchy. This makes them sound like testosterone-driven hard rock to soundtrack dusty motorcycle rides, but there’s more to their mammoth sound. ‘Keep the focus on the hook’ is the band’s motto, and they take influence from blues rock guitar greats like Zeppelin and Grand Funk Railroad and inject it with fuzz while adding a nod to the 90s in their sound. Never a band to hold back when it comes to the almighty call of heavy rock, Sasquatch returned with their fifth full length album in June of 2017. Full of supercharged riffs and bludgeoning rhythms, they stand aside from much of the stoner rock crowd with songs which sound as if they have been hewn from the very rock itself but then turned up to 11 with a mighty dose of big-ness.
YIDHRA wields and conveys the immense power to immerse their audiences into a vast sonic soundscape wrought with heavy riffs, grooves that ebb and flow like the oceans and vocals that shift from gut wrenching terror to blissful tranquility. In a world where rock has become watered down, manufactured and studio manipulated, Yidhra's approach is a return to the days when heavy music was about true expression, raw emotions and powerfully catchy kick ass songs. Yidhra’s full length, 9-song album “Hexed” stands as a monument to those ideals and was pushed to even greater heights with the help of legendary producer Bill Metoyer. Bill, who has recorded the likes of Slayer, Corrosion of Conformity, Trouble, D.R.I., Sacred Reich, Hirax, Dark Angel, Morbid Angel, BL'AST and many more, helped sow the seeds of Doom with Yidhra and now they are ready to reap their bountiful harvest. Yidhra is the future of Doom Metal, one of the bands most likely to be positioned along side Saint Vitus, Electric Wizard, Trouble and Candlemass in the Doom Metal Throne Room.
