Rising from the ashes of what was undoubtedly the greatest "Blue Peter Metal" band of their time - Thor's Children, Evil Scarecrow have gone on to leave audiences awed by their Iron Maiden meets Black Metal meets stickyback plastic performances.

With influences from artists such as Megadeth, Marilyn Manson, Europe and of course Immortal's make up application techniques, you can never be too sure what will be served up next, but that's just part of the experience.

Since the release of their debut album “Crowcifiction” and then its follow up the “Hell Dog” EP the band have received praise from music critics and fans alike. They have gigged extensively in the UK winning the hearts of Metal fans wherever they are heard.

In April 2009 the band released their second full-length album “Sixty-Six Minutes Past Six” and embarked on a UK tour to support it, gaining new fans and treating those that had caught them at Bloodstock to the full Evil Scarecrow experience! In February 2010 they released a video for the most critically acclaimed track on the album “Blacken The Everything”. They gigged relentlessly throughout 2009 and plan to continue this throughout 2010.

It is Evil Scarecrow’s impressive song writing and ingenious lyrics that are the key to their success, blending together humour with their love for all things Heavy Metal… though of course a bit of co-ordinated dancing never hurt anyone! It is this passion and enthusiasm that never fails to connect with their audience.
