In 1994, 16volt skipped the industry-standard “sophomore jinx” and released the slightly more raw-sounding “Skin.” This release brought more praise and won features in Alternative Press, Kerrang! “Skin” reached the #2 slot on Rolling Stone’s alternative charts and charted everywhere from the United States (CMJ) to France, Germany, Ireland, and Japan.
Our ship arrived early and we got to spend some time with Milky, their mascot. We only stayed one night prior to getting on the cruise ship but we were so impressed with the location, comfort and warm greeting from Franco and the team we would stay again for a few days when we visit Italy again.
Franco and Sandro made this a most enjoyable pre-cruise stay.
Working with co-producers; David Ogilvie (Nine Inch Nails), Keith “Fluffy” Auerbach (Ministry), Jeff "Critter" Newell (Angels & Airwaves, Blink-182) and special guests William Tucker (Ministry), Marc La Corte (Schecter Guitars), and Bryan Black (Black Asteroid).
These three albums earned worldwide praise and garnered features in Guitar Player, Alternative Press, B-Side, Kerrang! Reaching a #1 slot on Rolling Stone’s alternative charts (Let Down Crush) as well as a #2 slot on Rolling Stone’s alternative charts (Skin), the band made a mark as they consistently charted on both college and national radio.
En 1994, 16Volt contribue plus sérieusement à la scène avec la sortie de l'album Skin.
