Skiltron Lyrics Follow

Skiltron is an Argentinian folk/power metal band formed in 2004 by Emilio Souto. While a fusion between heavy metal and celtic music is common in many parts of Europe, it is uncommon in South America, and especially in Argentina, Skiltron being pioneers of the genre. The name "Skiltron" derives from a variation of the word schiltron, a formation used by the Scottish during the Wars of Independence.
Starting with a 3 song demo in 2004 called "GATHERING THE CLANS", the band released their full length debut album "THE CLANS HAVE UNITED" (First Folk-Metal album ever released in Argentina) in 2006 through European record label "Underground Symphony".
In 2008 SKILTRON released their second album "BEHEADING THE LIARS", and two years later in 2010, their third album "THE HIGHLAND WAY", each album continually building on the band’s unique style and sound.
Most of the early gigs took place in Argentina, featuring shows with GRAVE DIGGER, IN EXTREMO and KORPIKLAANI, with whom the band shared a South American tour in 2010, promoting then the album THE HIGHLAND WAY
In 2012 SKILTRON made their European live debut playing a UK tour with MARTIN WALKYIER (ex SABBAT & SKYCLAD) as a guest singer.
After the release of INTO THE BATTLEGROUND in 2013 the band started to tour Europe regullary, also playing festivals like WACKEN, BLOODSTOCK, HORNERFEST, HEADBANGERS, DONG, etc. sharing stages with bands such as JUDAS PRIEST, SLAYER, IN FLAMES, KING DIAMOND and AVANTASIA among many others.
The latest album LEGACY OF BLOOD was released in 2016 by TROLLZORN RECORDS and was followed by a massive European tour, playing 50 shows in 2 months in 20 countries.
In early 2017 SKILTRON played for the first time in JAPAN, sharing 3 shows together with EQUILIBRIUM and SUIDAKRA.
Throughout the last 13 years, SKILTRON have constantly earned recognition within the Folk and Metal scene, projecting themselves as one of the references of the style.
