THE EVERSCATHED lineage dates back to 1996 when W. Frickenstein (bass/vocals) and his band mates chose a warpath of dark, dismal Death Metal to become known as ENMORTEM. The band went on to record and release 3 demos (“Bleeding The Sorrow” in 1997, “Their Blood I Offer The King” in 1998, “Manifestations Of Infernal Disgust” in 1999) and one EP (“Barbaric Displeasure” in 2000). In 2002, ENMORTEM were ready to record a full length and entered the studio to create the “Razors Of Unrest” album. Before the album was released, ENMORTEM decided on a name change, since the group’s past endeavors in no way represented the current song writing and purpose. As of January 1st, 2003, the band’s name was officially changed to THE EVERSCATHED. A series of injuries suffered by each of the band members (at different times) put off the release of “Razors” until 2006, when it was finally released by Open Grave Records. Many shows were played in support of the record, and in 2008 THE EVERSCATHED entered the studio to record “The Devils Cross” EP. Also recorded at that time was the two song “Path Of Soured Dreams” demo CD, which acted as a teaser to the song writing path the band was heading towards. In 2009, original drummer Tim Frickenstein left the band and was immediately replaced with longtime friend John Contreras, proven drummer and producer with the bands VEHEMENT and CONGLOMERATORZ. Shows in 2009 were the band’s strongest to date, with their stage presence increasing tenfold. The band continued writing for the next full-length album, and in 2010 recorded and released “Still Screaming World” through Allergicide Music. The band was now playing the biggest shows of their career, opening for nationals, headlining events and touring with other veteran Metal acts. In 2013 the band recorded the “Disgrace In Arms” EP, and shortly after it’s completion THE EVERSCATHED parted ways with long-time guitarist Brice Dalzell. Barely out of the studio and the band has already begun working on brand new material, along with honing the classic material with new guitarist Allen Mate (UNSOLEMN, EMBER, EMPYREAN SKY).
The chains have been broken, shackled no more. The ‘SCATHED are screaming, onward and upward.
