Other people’s words about Skandal:
Seems like you guys had a fun time on our little cold, windswept rock. Really liked your show, you guys are heavy like an iron barrel full of satanic fertilizer. Hope you visit us again!’

‘The band started as a side project to record some songs…Eventually it turned into something more serious!

I look forward to the continuation of this project! 9/10’
