Scars of Solitude’s debut album, Deformation, will be released on December 1 via Inverse Records. The band was formed in January 2015 and has stood firmly and proud behind its music ever since. Scars of Solitude is a melodic metal quintet from Äänekoski, Finland, playing music rooted deep in the Finnish melancholy. Their music sounds like autumn - it's kinda dark, rainy and cold but still rich in both beauty and colour despite all the despair.
Even though many of its members have come and gone, the founding members; Tuomo Laulainen, Niki Kuivakangas, and Lassi Pollari, have remained since the birth of the band. Now the core trio are accompanied by the talented Mikko Ruuska on vocals and Antti Kettunen on rhythm guitar.
“Music can be like a graveyard for your emotions. You dump them in there and revisit once in a while if you wish. Some you need to bury alive, some might crawl back to haunt you. These songs have been cold and pale waiting for their burial for a long time. Now it's time for you to start digging.”
