Spiral Scar's debut CD, A Moment’s Loss of Identity, was released in May, 2014. The album marks a decade of collaboration between Guitarist Sean Joseph and bassist fiende, the founding members of Spiral Scar. Sean, a veteran guitarist of Variable, Only Once, and Encryption, started working with fiende and wrote the beginnings of what would become their demo EP. After an extensive search, Sean and Fiende recruited Tim Mullins, former vocalist of Via Bella and Rising Fury. Finally the NJ quartet rounded themselves out with the addition of drummer John Soden, formerly of Angel of Fire, Crescent Ave, and The Dreamnaughts.
“AMLI started as an introspective journey for me, but ended up being a dark reflection” Sean said about the music. When asked what inspired his lyrics, Tim said “My story is a long and painful experience colored with brief flashes of hope and love, and for me, this EP is about catharsis. What you’re hearing is raw emotion”
