"New Band Of The Week: Runescarred"

Providing a quintessentially modern twist on the grandiose bombast of metal’s earlier glory, Runescarred effortlessly complement swanky technicality with the inherent excitement of enticing choruses and skull-rattling speed. It’s a mix that should see them fly up metal’s ranks. - Louder Sound

Runescarred are a progressive metal and rock powerhouse who, since their inception on June 27, 2017, have made a tremendous name for themselves. Having released their critically acclaimed E.P., “We Are”, in conjunction with their single “Being God”, the quintet has garnered global praise. Features in Metal Hammer, Loudwire, Decibel and Power Play are only a few examples of their worldwide notice. 

Currently recording their second album, an as-of-yet-titled full length, Runescarred are filling their heavy metal dance card. A powerhouse of a stage show, the band has already joined the stage with legends like Metal Church and contemporary peers like Holy Grail. With their debut EP having been a veritable tour de force, the upcoming full length - and accompanying performances - is poised to entertain and earn more praise from fans and critics alike. 

With deep connections throughout the underground, and a passion for the road that has rarely been matched, Runescarred sit on the precipice of great things. Embracing the dark realities of humanity, Runescarred’s music continues to explore bleak fantasy worlds and the brokenness of the human condition. Fusing groove with bombast, riffs with sonic poetry and destructive growls with transcendent cleans, there is something mesmerizing and powerful about Runescarred. Just as likely to pull you into the pit as they are to bow a head in self reflection, it’s hard not to be impressed by this Texas metal legion.
