I like various types of music, from Beethoven to Bon Jovi, and from Willie Nelson to Weird Al. One day I was thinking I would like to hear some good bag pipe music, but some a little different than Amazing Grace (which is an awesome song). That got the Mad in the Mad hatter going "I wonder if there is heavy metal bag pipes" sure enough the Matrix... err the Internet did not fail me.
Skiltron is an Argentine heavy metal Celtic band (Sounds like something Douglas Adams would have come up with). Most of their songs are reminiscent of old battle songs and poems from the middle ages but played to the sound of electric guitars and bag pipes. Best part for me is they tend to stay away from the screaming that many bands indulge way to much in at times.
Until Madness strikes again,
