Officially founded in 2004, Skiltron is the leading Folk Metal band from South America, based in Argentina.

After a 3 song demo in 2004 called "Gathering the Clans", the band released their full length debut album "The Clans have United" (First Folk-Metal album ever released in Argentina) in 2006 through European record label "Underground Symphony".

In 2008 Skiltron released their second album "Beheading the Liars", and two years later in 2010, their third album "The Highland Way", each album continually building on the band's unique style and sound.

Most of the early gigs took place in Argentina, featuring shows with Grave Digger, In Extremo, Martin Walkyier and Korpiklaani, with whom the band shared a South American tour in 2010.
In 2012 Skiltron made their European live debut playing a UK tour with Martin Walkyier (ex Sabbat, Skyclad) as a guest singer.

The new album "Into the Battleground" was released in July 2013 finding the band in their best shape and stronger than ever! Followed by and European tour sharing stage with Slayer, Avantasia, King Diamond, Accept and King Diamond, among many others!

Throughout the last 9 years, Skiltron have constantly earned recognition within a scene that is popular in Europe, but still considered a rarity in the rest of the World.
