After years of maniacal work and dedication, Scarred has returned with "Mirage" the lead single off their forthcoming self-titled album and first new music in 7-years. It is the band's third LP and debut featuring their new singer Yann Dalscheid.
"["Mirage"] is fast, technical, huge, hooky, and corrosive, like a truck from Mad Max spewing flames and battery acid. If you dig bands like Machine Head, Revocation, and Sylosis, you’re gonna love Scarred." - MetalSucks (Premiere)
Scarred is inspired by the transformation the band has gone through over the past four years and is by far their most personal work to date, hence the self-title.
Without being a narrative, this opus is constructed as a concept album and can be listened straight through with almost no interruption, with different parts of the album echoing each other much like a Pink Floyd album. It is meant to embark the listener on the same journey the band has travelled, from the initial disaggregation, up and down, to the final liberation.
While this album is still deeply anchored in Death Metal, it contains a lot more melodic and atmospheric, even psychedelic elements than Scarred’s previous work, taking advantage of the broad range of their new singer.
