Combining their varied influences with elements of post-rock, Scathed present savage riffs, a calamitous rhythm section and distinctive vocal “somewhere between Blondie’s Debbie Harry and Pantera‘s Phil Anselmo” (Metal Wani, 2018) that has carved out their niche in the Irish metal scene.
Their abrasive yet hooky, genre-crossing anthems have landed them huge support slots, namely Halestorm in a sold-out Academy Dublin in 2018 and more recently this year with Hands Off Gretel in The Voodoo Lounge, Belfast.
The last three years have seen Scathed gig relentlessly across the Irish metal circuit alongside the likes of Jet Fuel Chemistry, GREYFACE and Dead Label.
Since releasing their debut EP ‘Where Truth Occurs’, Scathed have focused on honing their songwriting and genre.
They are back from the depths of a nationwide lockdown, eager to share what they have come up with, starting with their new single ‘Deceit’, released today.
Vocalist, Ainsley Kavanagh commented on the track:
AINSLEY – “‘Deceit’ is a song that narrates the inner process of dismantling a toxic influence in your life.
Our judgement and esteem can be clouded by the way we perceive seemingly righteous people. ‘Deceit’ is about the challenge of discerning their facade and finding freedom.”
