Sammy is the drummer of Snakes N' Barrels. He is long blond hair held back with a headband, wearing no shirt and hot pink pants with white suspenders. Despite his success in the band, Twinskins suffered from cocaine addiction, which after Pickles' departure from the band forced him into poverty, obesity and eventually sobriety.

Despite Twinskins's poor health and withered musical skills, Pickles managed to help restore his musical talent in time for a Snakes N' Barrels reunion concert, which unfortunately was sabotaged by the Tribunal manipulating the band into taking "Totally Awesome Sweet Alabama Liquid Snake" prior to their performance. Although the drug was intended to effectively wipe Pickles' mind and make him susceptible to the Tribunal's control, his years of drug use left him effectively immune to the drug, while Twinskins was mentally traumatized into a hallucinogenic state during the concert.

In their next appearance, the remaining members of Snakes N' Barrels had been reorganized once more by musician and sobriety spokesman Rikki Kixx, who had taken advantage of their brainwashed minds in order to further his agenda of forced sobriety. Twinskins, while still visibly obese, adopted a modern style of clothing to reflect his new message of sobriety. Unknown to everybody but the Tribunal however, the Totally Sweet Alabama Liquid Snake was still present in Twinskin's body, and would cause madness-inducing phosphorus snakes to shoot out from every orifice of his body if exposed to bright lights, loud sounds and pyrotechnics. The unaware Kixx proceeded to hold a concert with Twinskins playing on drums, during which the drug became active once more in his system and caused the entire concert to fall into a state of inebriated madness. It is unknown what happened to Twinskins following the concert.


  • Like many of the names in the series, his name is a joke. "Candynose" is a term for someone who snorts a lot of cocaine. "Twinskins" is likely a nod to rolling up paper for cigarettes, as "Skins" is a British slang term for cigarette roll-ups. Basically, his name implies he snorts cocaine two roll ups at a time.
  • He can be seen among the musicians auditioning for Dethklok's rhythm guitarist in The Doomstar Requiem. This suggests he also knows how to play guitar to some degree, though not as well as Swkisgaar or Toki.
