The band started off in late 2009 after a long running collaborations
in death metal/hardcore/grindcore bands, Halimi (Guitar&Vox) and
Gozlan (Drums) wanted to do their music slower but maintain the
intensity in their music they decided to form "a sludge group in the
spirit of old-school traditions". with influences from bands such as
Eyehategod, Melvins, Electric Wizard and Khanate they draw the line
between Sludge and doom to even more extreme lines such as drone.
In early 2011 Shai Izacov (Madalarm) joined on the bass and after the
idea was actually formed, and started off writing and performing at
first under the name of "The Jury Accident", and then switched off to
the current band name "Sckhinn". Currently (summer 2011) the band is
working on their debut release with No Hope from Germany, a 7" vinyl
split. the split will feature "The Voidal Escapings" that got released
on the net (just the rough mix version). The will to create the
heaviest musical bombardment that they can is the main drive for this
"Sckhinn is a Sludge/Doom band from Israel. The band's torpid pace bends and slithers around a sweet doom groove as the vocals pummel away at your eardrums. According to the band's bio I do hope that there is a full-blown release from these guys soon. Doom on!"
