Skillet's music is a mixture of hard rock, funk, punk,metal and industrial fused together with pure energy, and a strong love for the Lord, all thrown together in the pan! They formed as a group back in the late '90's, and have produced many popular albums in their music ministry, much to the delight of their youthful fans, who not only get to enjoy fine hard rock music, with interesting sparkles of funk and punk, but also are encouraged, enlightened, fed with Christian messages about the Gospel, which point to Jesus.

Vocalist and Bassist John Cooper is the only remaining member from the bands early years with the addition of Korey Cooper (married to John)on Keys/Guitar and BGV, Lorey Peters on drums and Ben Kasica on guitars

Skillet released their sixth studio album "Comatose" on 3rd October 2006. They play at Kingdom Bound Every Year with Bands like Emery, Pillar, and others..

-----Wiki's Bio on them-----------
Skillet is a Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in the mid-90s. It is composed of John Cooper on vocals and bass, his wife Korey Cooper on keyboards, guitar and vocals, Ben Kasica on guitar, and Lori Peters on drums. They span the musical genres from grunge to techno, industrial to guitar-driven anthematic metal. They were heavily influenced by the bands Mortal and Fold Zandura.

First hitting the CCM scene in 1996, Skillet originally had three members: John Cooper, Trey McClurkin (drums), and Ken Steorts (guitar). The line-up was the same on their second CD. With their third CD, John's wife Korey joined the band in the keyboards, Ken Steorts left the band and Kevin Haaland stepped in. Soon after the release of Invincible however, Trey McClurkin also left, and Lori Peters took his place on the drums. Kevin Haaland left the band before Alien Youth, and Ben Kasica took over on guitar.

* John Cooper - lead vocals, bass (Founding member)
* Korey Cooper - backing vocals, keyboard, guitar (Member since 1999)
* Ben Kasica - guitar (Member since 2001)
* Lori Peters - drums (Member since 2000)

Former Members:
* Trey McClurkin - drums (1996 - 2000)
* Ken Steorts - guitar (1996 - 1999, founder of The Visible School, a Christian school)

Eu am devenit asa ca sa zic un mic fan al lor dupa ce am auzit piesa Say Goodbye, in 2008... sunt buni!!!
