Not all bands can end up as stadium darlings, selling out arenas worldwide. Some bands happily live a cult existence with a legion of die-hard fans who would travel to the end of the earth just to see a one-off show. One such band are Skanners, the Italian cult heavy metallers who have just released their ‘Greatest Hits’ compilation.

                You know what, it does exactly what it says on the tin. ‘Hits’ may be a rather stretched term for Skanners, but it does give a large retrospective covering of the Italians career. Much like any other greatest hits compilation, this one gives a great taster of what Skanners are all about; pounding riffs and sing-a-long songs which have all the appeal of Judas Priest and Metal Church, to Primal Fear and Helloween which provides the perfect springboard to initiate any budding metal fan into a great cult band. Furthermore, it is also a decent compilation that can simply be whacked into the car, turned on full blast and slam the pedal down, you damned well that you can’t drive 55 with this playing.


                Ultimately, this is a greatest hits album and record enthusiasts often sneer, jeer, and turn their noses up at such a prospect. But they do serve a purpose and this Skanners compilation can be thoroughly enjoyed. - Metal Digest

Release Date October 22 2021

FFO: Metal Church, Accept, Helloween

To celebrate the 35th discographic anniversary of the Band and the forthcoming 40th since its formation, Music for the Masses has the honor to announce the agreement with legendary Italian metallers Skanners for the release of their first Greatest Hits which goes through the Band’s whole career. Skanners are with no doubt one of the most important and representative bands of Italian Heavy Metal, one of the few deserving the definition of “Legendary”. Kicking off back in 1982 and debuting in 1986 with “Dirty Armada”, released for a Major Label, the then very active CGD, which also released the following “Pictures of War” in 1988, the Band has ever since kept up its identity and dignity, always far from trend-following and staying true to its Metal Belief, supported by great composition and talent, together with Claudio Pisoni’s voice. These have always been the trademarks of the Band. The Greatest hits, produced by Music for the Masses is scheduled for release on October 22nd on cd format and features 16 tracks drawn from the entire rich Band’s repertoire, tracing an actual musical biography which will satisfy die hard fans but will also be able to attract new listeners to their musical craft. And, for this special release, a new, unreleased song entitled “Under the Grave” will be on the album.

The album will be distributed by Egea Music (Italy), Code 7 (Europe), Sleaszy Rider Records (USA), Wormholedeath Japan and Music for the Masses Distro. In addition, it will be available on all digital platforms. The promotion will be taken care by Grand Sounds (Europe), Metal Devastation PR (USA), Mazzarella Press Office (Italy) and Wormholedeath (Japan).

Lineup:

CLAUDIO PISONI -Vocals

FABIO TENCA - Guitars

WALTER UNTERHAUSER - Guitars
