Fueled by a passion to bring horrific and grotesque sounds to their fans, Ottawa’s A Scar For The Wicked (ASFTW) are revealing their new lyric video “Born From The Grave” via BeheadingTheTraitor in support of their upcoming third EP ‘The Unholy’ set to be unearthed on June 29, 2018.

Full of face melting heaviness and a dark and evil atmosphere that offers more sickening death metal to the unsuspecting world ‘The Unholy’ follows their 2012 Machiavellian hymn to the dead “Scars” and 2014’s brutal assault “The Necrobutcher”.
The band comments:
“‘The Unholy’ is a step up from our previous EP ‘The Necrobutcher’. It’s heavier, more technical, faster, more melodic and flows very well from front to back. Silverwing Studios did an excellent production. The vocals often alternate from low to high in range and is accompanied by powerful backing-vocals. Every track is hard hitting and overall the EP and lyrical content have a very dark feel to them.”
Guitarist Joe Lyko explains:
“A Scar For The Wicked was really a twist on “people marking the houses of where witches live, a mark on them so people knew to stay away, a scar as we like to look at it”, I always liked the idea of thinking every time we play we leave a mark on the crowd, something to remind them of us.”
