merge prop[edit]

The former drummer Lori Peters doent appear to meet WP:MUSIC apart from the band. She also appears to have zero independent coverage, and has not done any serious solo work or work with another notable band. So I think it would be apropriate to merge anything useful to this article, then redirect the article. --Kraftlos (Talk | Contrib) 01:50, 24 July 2009 (UTC


She was with the band for 6ish years and was very notable during her career with the band I think it would be a bit to hasty to merge her article for a while anyway. Especially now with a new Skillet album coming out she may make a statement about it in the media, or even make an announcement about a new project or something. I don't recall the specifics but Panhead.com had an artical up about how she was doing a while back, maybe you could look into that. 9:23, 24th August (NZT)

Skillet will need this Mcgrewkaelan98 (talk) 23:10, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

sourced styles and genres[edit]

This is the version up to today:

The band's style has been described as rock,[1] Christian rock, Christian metal,[2][3] alternative rock,[4][5] hard rock,[2][5][6] nu metal,[7][8] and symphonic metal.[7] The band's eponymous debut album characterized by its grunge influences, while their follow-up album, Hey You, I Love Your Soul was noted for "its electronic elements and industrial feel."[9]

The problem I have with the change is that it removes genres listed in the infobox. I don't believe either set of sources are better. Walter Görlitz (talk) 19:20, 13 February 2016 (UTC) @Synthwave.94: I'm OK with you removing your edit warring notice, but be warned, you're at WP:3RR and you have not discussed changes. Walter Görlitz (talk) 19:21, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

"Rock" alone is not listed in the infobox (and is badly sourced) while "Christian rock" is correctly sourced (AllMusic: "Memphis Christian rockers" / "Alternative CCM rockers"). MOVE Magazine supports nu metal/Christian metal ("Tennessee nu-metal quartet" then "their usual positive Christian undertones" and "Christian themes") and symphonic metal ("They have evolved into a symphonic metal hybrid sound on this release") Billboard supports Christian rock, alternative rock and hard rock with "Christian alternative/hard rock band". Finally HitFix mentions "Christian hard rock". Other sources didn't support these genres for the band. Synthwave.94 (talk) 19:35, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Yes this will work Mcgrewkaelan98 (talk) 23:10, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Sold records/timeline[edit]

I'm missing more sales volumes. The timeline graphic is nice (should become a WP standard!), but please use SVG graphics format for better maintainance!--Mideal (talk) 05:50, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Additional sales figures would be helpful.
The timeline is not nice. With the lack of changes, it's not really needed. Prose are better in this case. If you want the graphic changed, you'll have to talk to the creators of the timeline template not us. Walter Görlitz (talk) 06:32, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
