SKANNERS was founded in 1982. Four years later they released their first album “Dirty Armada”, distributed by CGD MMI. Their biggest success so far was achieved after releasing the second LP “Pictures Of War” in 1988 when they supported mentionable acts such as Motörhead, Halloween, Saxon Manowar, Dio and Twisted Sisters. Due to that they initiated a series of gigs in Italy in 1994. One year later they launched the third LP “The Magic Square”.
