Covered In Scars™ is the recording project of Progressive Death Metal bassist Zack Ryan (Shadows In The Hourglass, S.I.T.H. Productions), who began the project in 2008 and also produced and financed the album. The final guitar tracks were recorded by Jake Koch (Enoonmai, King Stench) in October 2014. We'll be recording more guitar solos in two weeks and starting on edits around the same time with mixing/mastering sometime afterwards. Vocals still to come. Stay tuned for more!!

The MySpace, CD layout and merchandise graphics are all the results of
Brutal Disorder Logos' artist Antonio Jimenez's sick mind, with some conceptual art designs by Zack Ryan. This guy does amazing artwork for cheap people, so shoot his way if you or a friends band need something done!
