PIG SQUEALS AND BREAKDOWNS – A Scar For The Wicked
“Right off the bat my favorite thing about The Unholy (EP) is how it injects blackened elements into their take on, what I guess is considered, technical death metal. Riffs are relentless and there is no lack of technicality…ASFTW offers a lot on The Unholy (EP) in a short amount of time. I think every song is equally good in different ways, but if you only have time for a couple then I recommend “Evil Within” and “Born from the Grave.” 8/10
Rekt Chords Magazine – A Scar For The Wicked
“A Scar for the Wicked has summoned a new age of carnage, which you’ll only be able to witness following the musical decapitation performed in The Unholy.”
OVERDRIVE Music Magazine – A Scar For The Wicked
“A Scar For The Wicked show promise, and if you’re a big fan of bands like The Black Dahlia Murder and Suicide Silence, it’s still worth checking this one out. And hey, if they tour through your area, that will be a set worth catching.”
Damn! That is about all I can start off this review with. I haven’t heard a new band that I can say has instantly hooked me with their music for quite some time. A Scar For The Wicked has completely blown me away. I had never heard of this band until today when I got the chance to review their new EP The Unholy.
