Skrapp Mettle

One of those long-lost footnotes in metal history, Skrapp Mettle consisted of mostly anonymous musicians who came together to record one album of rather pedestrian rock metal, though the lyrics are at times quite over the top and certainly not to be taken at all seriously ("That Load", with its anthemic chorus of "swallow that load!" is simply hilarious). The one known quantity here is vocalist Jeff Scott Soto, who's apparently quite adept at the anonymous singing bit (he was also the "secret" vocalist in Kryst The Conqueror) as well as some serious work for guitar virtuosos Yngwie Malmsteen and Axel Rudi Pell. The one album here, Sensitive, really didn't make much noise and the band (if it was ever a band at all) quickly disappeared, never to be heard from again. One for the humor archives if nothing else.
