Skindred + XII, Three Day Millionaires

Welly, Hull  |  29/11/2018

Tonight, Welsh raga metal pioneers Skindred return to Hull in support of their fantastic seventh studio album, ‘Big Tings’. With support from local lads Three Day Millionaires and XII, it’s going to be heavy, fast, punky and funky… to say the least.


Three Day Millionaires have been tearing up the scene with their punk-infused stadium rock sound for a while. Somewhere between Foo Fighters, QOTSA and So-Cal Punk, the three-piece rip through a blistering set of sleazy anthems, fuzzy bass, slick guitars and belting drums. Give them a look!


Next, local thrash legends XIII rule the stage. Heavy, fast and unforgiving, the guys play a blinding set. The crowd eat it up as a sea of heads bang in the low light. Chugging guitars open up to melancholic soundscapes, before descending to stomping, angst-ridden riffs. Pulsing bass and unrelenting drums seal the deal. XIII are on the up, and hopefully we’ll see much more to come in 2019.


Skindred hit the stage, and hit it big, blasting out a career-spanning retrospective of fan favourites including ‘Pressure’, ‘Rat Race’, ‘Machine’, ‘Ninja’ and ‘Kill the Power’, to get the crowd moving. Skindred’s sound is instantly recognisable in the best of ways. With a driving nu-metal guitar sound spliced with dance hall rhythms and Benji Webbe’s distinctive vocal, it mashes the best of all genres in a tight package.

I’m thoroughly impressed with how good the guys sound live. The sound is thick and unctuous as dub bass morphs into a barrage of heavy riffs, soulful reggae and beyond. The genre mash is strong in this one; I normally like to do a ‘sounds like this with this and this’, but the range of influence is too wide for me to ever do it justice. Let’s just say it’s awe-inspiring.

Special note must be given to Benji’s stage outfits, somewhere between a heavy metal Liberace, 80’s Meatloaf, Kids’ TV’s Craig Benson Philips (he had some lovely waistcoats…) and Steam Punk. There’s enough sparkle, glam, leather and spikes to keep a goth circus in business – if that’s even a thing?

Skindred are on tour now. Check them out!
