Skillet simply rawking faces off!

Never ones to sauté the same sounds perpetually on each release, or to revisit lightening that's already struck, the members of Skillet are in the constant pursuit of variety, as their name so appropriately implies: a sensory overloading hybrid of diverse tastes and styles. Since 1996, the John Cooper-led quartet has bounced between modern rock urgency on its self-titled debut, the electronic domination of Hey You I Love Your Soul, pulsating techno explosions throughout Invincible, prayerful reverence on Ardent Worship, and intense industrialization on Alien Youth, earning a vast army of "Panheads" and a respectable amount of industry acclaim in the process. With eight number one radio singles under its belt, eleven Dove nominations, and over 200 jam-packed concert dates a year, the group is amongst Christian musics alternative elite with a solid commitment to artistic excellence and evangelistic relevance.


What's a Panhead??
"You see, there are three levels in 'Skillethood.' Those who don't know, those who become 'Skilletfanz' through hearing our music, and then 'Panheads,' those who come to three or four shows traveling up to 10 hours, bringing skillets, banners, writing on their cars, and so forth. Of course, we love them all, but we have a special place in our hearts for 'Panheads.'"
~Ken Steorts (founding guitarist of Skillet)

Skillet's newest album, Collide, was released Nov. 18, 2003.


Collide Cover Art:
"There have been a lot of questions about the album cover of Collide. I wondered if people would have questions, so we waited before talking about it. The symbolism is very simple: the mannequin represents a lifeless body, and the wings and snake represent the struggle of good and evil. We are struggling with the fact that our faith as believers is colliding with our fears as humans. The bible teaches us that we are new creations. If we are, then why do we feel scared in this world and why do we make mistakes? We are sometimes going to question and feel fear, but what matters is how we respond to it. The bible says that we have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. This power in our lives can cause us to rise above our circumstances, and even our own humanity."
-John Cooper

Wow...what a crowd!!
