Skandal – First Step To Nowhere
Torn Flesh Records – 2013
Rock, Metal, NWOBHW, Death, Stoner
Four guys from the mean streets of Leeds that play fast paced chugging metal that opens up into something completely different when you least expect it. Skandal was formed in Greece as a studio project that quickly took a life of its own after which the man behind it moved to England and recruited new members. On their first release, the two track EP First Step To Nowhere the guys turn something vicious and aggressive into something technical and progressive and hint at something spacey and stoner related. They show definite prowess with slaying guitars and riffs straight from the metal underworld. Accompanied by towering drums that are simply scandalously good. Skandal is heavy, fast and rude and might just be that dirty line of speed everyone needs on occasion!
