|In 1997, Emilio Souto and Matías Pena, who already knew each other through high school, decided to form their first professional band. To achieve this, they contact Walter Hernández and they start rehearsing. After some auditions for the vocalist place, Maximiliano Basualdo, a friend of the band, becomes a member. The band takes the name of Century. After their first live show in December 1997, the rehearsal continued until 1998. It was righ then, when Walter left the band to dedicate full time to his own project called Angelus.
For some time the band looked for a replacement, but as it didn't have good results, the band stacked and finally came apart.
It was then, when the idea of forming a band orientated to the Celtic Heavy Metal came up.
From the year 2000, Emilio and Matías start to look for musicians who could be interested in doing it. Retaking the name of Century, the first songs were developing.
As they didn't find much response and commitment on behalf of the other member of the band, the project is postponed.
During the year 2001, both, Emilio and Matías, became stable members of Feanor.
Even though they were very into this band, the search for members and composition of songs continued, but by then, the project was in a second range of importance.
For the next few years, Feanor keeps very active, playing live and recording its first full length.
Entering into the year 2004, it was decided to restart the project with a more serious attitude. After that decision, there also was a change in the name of the band, Century would become Skiltron.
Before the recording of Gathering the Clans, the decision of who the sessionist musicians were going to be was taken. Javier Yuchechen, Selidor's vocalist was summoned together with other two musicians of the local Celtic scene: Gustavo Fuentes, director of the Buenos Aires Celtic Music School, and Freddy Mackinlay, member of the South Amerincan Piping Asociation.
Between the end of August and beginning of September, the material was recorded at La Nave de Osberg studios, which was known to have received artists such as Tarja Turunen, Fabio Lione and Rata Blanca, among others.
Once the recording was finished, the distribution and promotion of the demo started. The official web site was launched in October.
Various local radios, webzines, and different publications showed great interest.
In December of that same year, Fernando Marty enters the band as bassist.
The radio show "Tiempos Violentos"broadcasted by, Rock and Pop, the most listened F.M. radio of the country, proclaimed "Gathering the clans"as the best demo of the year.
Thanks to the worldwide distribution of the material, the label "Underground Symphony", which has edited records by such artist as Labyrinth, Avalanch and White skull, showed great interest in editing Skiltron´s first album "The Clans have United".
The album was recorded in between April and October 2005, again in "La Nave de Osberbg" studios
Nowadays the band in preparing for what will be a very active year.
