Biography

Skillet recently made headlines when their last album, Awake, became one of just three rock albums to be certified platinum in 2012, forming an improbable triumvirate with the Black Keys’ El Camino and Mumford & Sons’ Babel. The news that Skillet had sold more than a million albums in the U.S. came as a shock to all but the band’s wildly diverse horde of fans, male and ... Read more in Amazon's Skillet Store

Editorial Reviews

The four-piece rock band known as Skillet has toured relentlessly since they formed in the late 90's. Fueled by a love of hard rock and pop melodies, Skillet released several albums independently, and driven by their faith in the music, began to make an impact drawing huge crowds across America.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winner of 2004 September 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Skillet's cd Collide is so massive, so edgy, so kinetic, that some may think I am gloating over it. Well, I am.

In the history of my life I have owned hundreds of cd's, and listened to hundreds of thousands of songs (no exaggeration) and after it all, I place Collide in the top 10. It is a grinding effort in the category of Rock, and is riddled with powerhouse vocals and Strong riffs. Over all, what sets it apart is its up-lifting uniqueness. I own every Skillet album ever made, and slowly over the years, it seemed they were lost in a tech-no'd oblivian. That may appeal to some, but Skillets debut album, though far from perfect, was pure rock. Then with each passing album, their sound changed until they sank into Alien Youth. Many incredible tracks came from these discs, such as "Kill me Heal me" "Locked in a cage" and "Scarecrow." But, as a whole, the albums seemed short of potential.

Now, rising from the ashes, comes Collide: Enhanced edition. Loosing half the band and taking on a female guitarist and drummer (his wife is one) seemed to some a tragedy, but in the end it was an awesome move. Their sound has evolved into a shattering, pounding, beautiful, motivational epic. It drenches the senses and gives clear messages on spirituality, abuse, pain, need, and most importantly, how to heal.

I could honestly be one of those hotheads that write a six mile long review, especially about something I am so passionate about, but I have said my peace. For fans of inspirational, grinding rock, buy Collide: enhanced edition. Skillet has been re-born. {- S.A.O.S.-}

5.0 out of 5 stars A Light in the Darkness! June 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is the Christian answer to Linkin Park (who I also like btw)! Skillet has really reached a new level with this great album. There are several songs in this CD that could stand with the best of them out there. They put out that wonderful "alternative" sound that so many of us enjoy, with its drama and edginess; a bit of that "soul in torment grappling with life" sound that Linkin Park, and Limp Bizkit are so great at. But Skillet has the added dimension of a Christian optimism. Where the others are fatalistic and without light, Skillet's Christianity comes across in a blaze of light, cutting through the darker issues of life. They don't hide from the darker issues, they blast them out of the water!

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not have been any better than this!!!! January 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ok Skillet has gone through such a drastic change from their annoying at times industrial rock musings on "Alien Youth" to their genius aggressive riffs on "Collide". John Cooper actually screams on this album and his screaming voice is one of the best in the business. Ben Kasica's riffs with Lauri's thunderous drumming and John's superb bass playing make this album a work of art. From the opening riffs of "Forsaken" you can tell that this album is going to be incredible. After "Forsaken" you have the breathtaking song "Savior" that is so powerful and spiritual at the same time. One of my favorites though on the cd is "Imperfection" for when John sings on the chorus you can just hear the passion that he has for those who are hurting from insecurity. I believe that this album is one of the best that I have heard in a long time. This album could surpass almost any mainstream album and I hope that Skillet gets some mainstream coverage. All in all this is an incredible cd that is directed towards the mainstream audience and I believe that God will bless it. This is a must have. May God bless Skillet's endeavors.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit more adult but still Christian December 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
It is true that God/Jesus isn't referenced directly in the lyrics. Often God is simply referred to as "You" or otherwise the lyrics are spoken from the viewpoint of God. I admit listening through this album initially left me wondering where the Christian value was in this CD but with subsequent listenings it became more apparent. Also, it is true that the subjects dealt with in the songs are sometimes dark but that does not make them any less relevant in the lives of Christians. For example, at Lifest, Cooper explained that "Open Wounds" was his first "suicide song" as he called it. In short, this song puts the listener into the shoes of someone who has been betrayed by their friends/role-models. Of course this isn't the traditional Christian way of teaching the golden rule but I think it still acheives the results on a very personal level.

"Forsaken" has been referred to by some reviewers as "angry" but I believe anyone who has experienced tragedy can identify with the lyrics. Personally, I respect Skillet for showing a side of Christian life that isn't always pretty. We've all felt this way at one time or another.

"Savior" is one of those songs that could easily be considered mainstream due to it's indirect references but I think many people like myself see how beautiful this track is directly after "Forsaken." "Savior" is clearly God's reply to the upset narrator of "Forsaken." Here God explains that the only thing that lasts in this world is His love. Suffering is inevitable in a broken world but God is the rock of ages. This song is the reason why "Forsaken" fits on the album.

"A Little More" is obviously a song about spreading the love of Jesus in a world that right now is driven by fear and hate. It's simply a beautiful ballad.
