SKYCLAD was founded in 1990 by then former Sabbat vocalist Martin Walkyier and Satan/Pariah guitarist Steve Ramsey, the two’s aim was to put together the ‘ultimate pagan metal band’. Initial ideas for the band included such extravagances as traditional Robin Hood costumes, although these concepts were soon dropped. SKYCLAD are now considered one of the pioneers of folk metal.

Current line-up:
Kevin Ridley (Vocals & guitar)
Steve Ramsey (Lead guitar, acoustic guitar and backing vocals)
Graeme “Bean” English (Bass guitar, acoustic and classical guitar)
George Biddle (Fiddle, keyboards and piano)
