Gaskin

Gaskin's harmonized melodic vocal style set them apart from many their NWOBHM contemporaries, with their style being a bit more refined than the rough riffing associated with early 80's Brit metal. With the standout opening track "Sweet Dream Maker", the End Of The World debut ranks as the better of the two albums released before falling by the wayside alongside many other bands of the time. Many years later, founder/namesake Paul Gaskin recruited a new lineup and released Stand Or Fall in 2000, and in fact Gaskin (now with original drummer Dave Norman) are still active as of 2012, with a new album set for a summer release.
