The English heavy-metal trio SKAM release the LP The Amazing Memoirs of Geoffrey Goddard on the 17th of November.
From the dozen track album (available directly from SKAM) has been led up to with a selection of stand alone singles, the most recent of which is Take It Or Leave It, the fifth song.
Classic rock played in the right hands always sounds fresh and invigorating and SKAM once again, in Take It Or Leave It, demonstrate their ability to write songs as well as deliver driving heavy-metal that finds the audience playing alongside on their own air-guitars.
It was back in 2014 that the English heavy-metal band SKAM were initially introduced.

Their newest single Fading Before The Sun, which was released last week, does everything that have established themselves for doing well – driving classic rock that finds the listener headbanging alongside in delight.
A model that has served well over decades for many and SKAM demonstrate once again why this is a style of music that is, deservedly so, long lasting.
Steve Hill (Guitars / Vocals), Matt Gilmore (Bass /Vocals), Ray Peverill (Drums / Vocals) make up the rock band SKAM from Leicester in England.
There are no flies on SKAM this is straight up British metal delivered in fine style. Don your jeans jacket, turn up the speakers, then force the volume louder and just revel in the sounds.
A bulbous guitar hurls itself around the room, whilst a thumping bass hammers the timpani as drums rattle away like hammer and tongs and through it a perfectly suited vocal. Not attempting, quite rightly, to redefine a style of music with a rich pedigree, SKAM nonetheless are able to add value to the tapestry.
The free flowing sounds are not forced, nor do they give the impression of trying to imitate, as the trio explore their own avenues of creativity. Evidently unafraid of their influences SKAM deliver music which is a credit both to themselves and their forebears with clarity and purpose. Their powerful stage performances are matched by recorded material which retains the passion and connection for those who can’t get to see them live.
A new LP Peacemaker is scheduled for the summer of 2014 with the launch gig set for the 9th August in their home-town.
