The roots of this band date back to the year 1997, when Emilio and Matias formed a 4 member band named Century. This project became of lesser importance when both joined Feanor, and was finally postponed in 2001 when the two musicians became full members of this band. The year 2004 saw the re-awakening and continuation of the project and furthermore a name change from Century to Skiltron.The band's name is derived from the term schiltron (also sheltron, shiltron or schiltrom), which refers to a formation of soldiers carrying pikes and polearms held in front of them to fight off approaching cavalry. In the First War of Scottish Independence, the Battle Bannockburn was won by the Scots using an offensive variation of this military formation. This modified tactic was a response to the crushing defeat that resulted from the schiltron's traditional defensive use in the Battle of Falkirk sixteen years earlier.Bagpipe player Pablo Allen also took over woodwind duties when Diego Spinelli left Skiltron.Four members of the band departed in 2011 and started a project in a similar style called Triddana.Skiltron played their first ever European show on August 25th 2012 when Emilio Souto and Matias Pena performed a short set with Martin Walkyier and members of Achren at the Wallace Day celebration in Elderslie, Scotland.Skiltron have made their first two albums available for free download through Don't Pay Music.Keeping with the band's affiliation for Scottish history, they contributed the song "The Ballad of William Kidd" to the Running Wild tribute: "Reunation - A Tribute to Running Wild".
The fifth album by Argentine metal band Skiltron sees them plant their flag firmly in Scottish soil. They clearly hold Scotland dear to their hearts as they adeptly plait together classic metal with nods to thrash and doom with plenty of bagpipes added to the mix. “Highland Blood” opens things up in rip-roaring fashion. Bagpipes are skilfully added to the pounding thrash metal drums that emphasis their warrior spirit. Thematically the album follows the medieval lines of uniting clans to fight, presumably, the English. These are impassioned songs of courage and patriotism with odes to brave warriors wielding their mighty swords.That fervent spirit is maintained throughout the album. “Committed To The Call” opens with swelling synths and a steady bass line before a classic metal riff and bagpipes take over. The song clearly takes its cues from British metal greats Iron Maiden and Judas Priest at their most epic. “Sailing Under False Flags” is a rollicking pirate drinking anthem perfect for those joyous days of looting and plunder. You can almost taste the mead and salty sea air. “The Taste of Victory” possesses a memorable, galloping sing-a-long chorus akin to Saxon at their most exhilarating. “Sawney Bean Clan” is one example where the band shows off their more folk metal side. It contains a particularly bouncy distorted riff that gives it a rousing quality. “All Men Die” exhibits plenty of metal fury. It is by far the fastest song on the album in a Judas Priest-do-thrash way. It is a welcome rush of adrenaline after the number of mid-paced songs that make up the second half of the album. Album closer “I’m Coming Home” is a patriotic sing-a-long epic that will make you want to don a kilt and strap on a sporran.Calling this album a folk metal album is something of a misnomer. This is straight up heavy metal served with a Scottish twist. The use of bagpipes is handled with restraint and adds something interesting to the songs. The main criticism would be that there are one or two too many mid-paced songs. The second half of the album gets bogged down with patriotic calls to arms over often ponderous would-be-epics. When the band ups the intensity they really are something to behold. On the whole it is an accessible entry point to the band and the whole Celtic metal movement. That said there is still plenty to enjoy for all lovers of heavy and thrash metal.
