The rest was recorded in Switzerland „with a little help“ of former Bandmates Jgor Gianola (U.D.O, JORN, GOTTHARD) and Mandy Meyer (UNISONIC, KROKUS, GOTTHARD) on Lead Guitars. In summer 2017, „Mind Over Matter“ was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen.
THE PAST TILL NOW:
FELSKINN was originally formed by Andy Portmann in 2005. The self titeled debut album was recorded with guest musicians and released in March 2006. The first Song on the Album „170105“ was later re-recorded by Kai Hansen and appeared as „Built A World“ on the 2014 Release „Empire Of The Undead“ by GAMMA RAY. Charts Nr. 13 in Germany!!!
The band played numerous shows and festivals. In April 2007 the 2nd album „Listen!“ was relesed, followed again by intensive touring. Due to the „famous“ musical differences the band disbanded in 2008.
Portmann started a live project with Mandy Meyer, playing songs from their previous bands. In 2010 Portmann formed the FELSKINN follow up band DOWNLOAD and started working on the album „Eleven Stages“. Release in April 2014.
While working on the next album „Mind Over Matter“, Portmann decided to bring back the band name FELSKINN. With the international production of „Mind Over Matter“ and the new signed deal with ROCK OF ANGELS RECORDS, FELSKINN is ready to hit the world wide market!!!!
