Scent of Remains / Bio

Exploding forth from a blood and sweat soaked wrecking ball of pounding and rolling grooves, memorable hooks, wailing lead guitar, and a trinity of screaming, death growls and clean vocals, Scent of Remains defy any –core suffix or sub-sub genre descriptors. The focus is pure, simple and to the point – no nonsense metal for anyone who likes to bang their head or get their face melted.

Drawing on influences ranging from the likes of Lamb of God, Metallica and Slayer to UFO, Thin Lizzy and ZZ Top, Scent of Remains has combined the old and new together and forged their own recognizable and memorable sound.

Currently, Scent of Remains is melting faces anywhere and everywhere they can, and will be touring in support of their latest full-length CD Under a Blackened Sky, which will be released in January of 2014 through Pavement Entertainment. Under a Blackened Sky features thirteen tracks of melodic brutality that explore the inner turmoil and uncontrollable outside influences that loom every day like dark clouds overhead. The album frankly delves into the depression, anger and violence that inevitably occur as release is sought.

Scent of Remains has been “Spreading the Scent” all over the Southeastern United states since getting their start 2009, gaining a reputation as a band that plays with high energy and heart-felt emotion. They’ve been fortunate enough to shared the stage with many well-known metal acts like Fear Factory, Hate Eternal, Devil Driver, Watain, Static-X, Green Jello, Davey Suicide, 9 Electric, Kobra and the Lotus and Straight Line Stitch.

Lead guitarist, Herb Himes, sums up the bands philosophy; “It’s not about being the heaviest band, the most extreme band, the fastest band or having the most individually talented shredders in our band. We don’t care about any of that. It’s about working together as a band, writing great heavy songs that people will remember, playing with feeling, and giving the fans an incredible show each time you step on the stage.”
