Skafandr (Cyrillic: Скафандр) is a popular Russian band playing in the self-defined "metal-dub" style. Skafandr was formed in 1998 by Eugeniy Rybnikov, Yuriy Vitel, and Kirill Soloviyov in Saint Petersburg. Until 2001 the band was giving concerts with Anna Stolyarova's vocals, but since then focused on instrumental music only.

Annually Skafandr gives around 40 concert performances all around Russia, and has recorded three full studio albums on their own record label "Metal Dub Sound System".

With the band's permission, several tracks from its second CD have been used as the soundtrack for animated shorts on Mult.ru - home of Masyanya.

The first animated music video Human created by Toondra animation studio got "Best music video of the 2006 year" award on RAMP Festival

Skafandr also produced the soundtrack for the video game Stalingrad.
