Skintrade – Chosen Ones Song Review

Today we are featuring another promising hard rock band; SKINTRADE, from SWEDEN. We have reviewed their great song; Chosen Ones, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.

Skintrade is a badass traditional/classic hard rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 3 months ago with their exceptional song; Chosen Ones, off from their latest full-length album; The Show Must Go On, which was released not long ago in 2020. Surprisingly, the band is actually making releases since 1993, which is truly admirable. They have started their careers with a full-length album called; Skintrade in 1993, Roach Powder in 1995, Past and Present in 2012, Refueled in 2017, and quite recently released The Show Must Go On in 2020, a long play album with 8 songs. First of all, big respect for every member of this band for everything they have done through all these years. Being an active band since 1992 surely is a big achievement, at least for me. This is showing how passionate these Swedish gentlemen are for music. So please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.

Chosen Ones is an epic classic rock, hard rock song with everything it has. Hands down. I come across bands and artists with traditional music styles almost every single day and most of the time, they are repeating usual ideas instead of offering something new. Actually when you think about it, being creative or innovative with a traditional music style is much more challenging than being with a new musical style. You gotta take everything into the next level, offer something better than the ancestors of this music style. Well, finally I’ve got what I wanted after a long time. Skintrade is definitely a phenomenal band that has the character you can expect to see from a proper band. They have the story, the experience, talent, skills, intelligence and the dynamics to make you fall in love once again with something we already love. This is what they basically do.

The song has an easy listening, classic hard rock structure. The song is mostly making the difference with its exceptional dynamics and energy flow. When you listen to it with full attention, you can easily tell how experienced these fellas really are. They have kept everything simple yet super addictive. And this is what is music all about isn’t it? Energy. Chosen Ones not only have the potential to make every single rock music fan happy but also bring them to see you play live. Honestly, this is one of the greatest songs I have listened to in this specific genre. There are so many ballad/classic/hard rock artists and bands I love and Skintrade has immediately reminded me of JORN with their understanding of music and of course with the incredible vocals of their vocalist.


Technically, Chosen Ones has exceptional standards as well as their musicality. Everything sounds super clean, clear, natural, very well balanced, handled, dynamic, and in great harmony. This is one of the best sounding songs I have listened to in this genre. As I have mentioned above, I personally loved how everything sounds separately here, also together at the same time. This is a phenomenal job without a doubt. I’d like to congratulate the musicians, their producer, sound engineer, mixer, and every single person who has taken part in the making process of this beauty.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Skintrade. They are unique at what they do and you can easily feel that as a listener. I am super delighted with my discovery and would love to see them perform live one day!

Chosen Ones is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to those who love ’90s traditional and classic rock music!
