As the career of Welsh "Ragga Metal" outfit DUB WAR came to a closure in late 1998 lead vocalist Benji Webbe departed for an international project MASS MENTAL working alongside such heavyweights as OZZY OSBOURNE and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES bassist Robert Trujillo, OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist Joe Holmes and former FAITH NO MORE and OZZY OSBOURNE drummer Mike Bordin.

Benji also laid down vocals on two songs on Max Cavalera's debut SOULFLY album, 'Prejudice' and 'Quilumbo' and would later appear onstage with the band to perform the tracks on their 1998 European tour. Upon his return to the UK after the MASS MENTAL project, Benji hooked up with bass player Danite Pea (a.k.a. Daniel Pugsley). Eventually this pairing united with Benji's erstwhile DUB WAR colleagues guitarist Jeff 'Death' Rose and drummer Ginge Ford, then in the midst of working up their own TRIBAL CLASH venture. The quartet duly adopted the name tag SKINDRED.
