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 and reached the charts at #13 in Germany. The band played numerous shows and festivals. In April 2007 the 2nd album „Listen!“ was released, followed again by intensive touring. Due to the „famous“ musical differences the band disbanded in 2008.
Portmann started a live project with Mandy Meyer (UNISONIC, KROKUS, GOTTHARD), playing songs from their previous bands. In 2010 Portmann formed the FELSKINN follow up band DOWNLOAD and started working on the album „Eleven Stages“, released in April 2014. The live band included the current FELSKINN line up with a different drummer.
While working on the next album „Mind Over Matter“, Portmann decided to bring back the band name FELSKINN.
