Upon forming in October 1993, French deathsters SCARVE birthed an intricate, dark & brutal brand of extremity. After releasing a demo, MCD & debut album “Translucence”, the six-piece signed a worldwide deal with Listenable Records in 2001. The resulting sophomore effort “Luminiferous” took SCARVE’s very own futuristic sound to new heights, allowing the band to embark on a series of festivals & shows throughout Europe, including a tour with NILE. But it was the critically acclaimed 2004 audio missile “Irradiant” that really stuck SCARVE’s flag on the metal map, earning them a spot on world famous festivals such as Graspop, Tuska Open Air & Waldrock.
Swedish masterminds MESHUGGAH even handpicked the band as the only support act on their European trek. Now these purveyors of modern brutality are back with “The Undercurrent”! Erupting track after unique track of ferocious, weaving, blastbeat-fueled madness, this mind-blowing slab of modern death metal sees SCARVE explore their art to the max. Armed with an explosive sound courtesy of longtime producer Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, SOILWORK) & stunning vocals by Lawrence Mackrory (vocalist on DARKANE’s classic “Rusted Angel” album) & brilliant drumming by Dirk Verbeuren (SOILWORK, ex-ABORTED), there is simply no way of avoiding the technical whirlwind that is “The Undercurrent”. Innovative brutal metal, think DEVIN TOWNSEND / STRAPPING YOUNG LAD & MESHUGGAH in a death metal way!
