“Artist: ScarsOf Envy Album: Three song promo release Label: Length: N/A Release Date: No Formal Release If you like: Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Machinehead, technical metal Standout Tracks: OBEY!, Stronger Than The Storm I was sent a three song sampler from Scars Of Envy to get a general feel of the band. From the presser, these guys have released two full length albums, Forsaken Me in June of 2011 and 2015's New Damn Nation. “Smear” is a single off of the former, “Stronger Than The Storm” and “OBEY!” from the latter. When I heard the first fifteen seconds of “OBEY!”, I was immediately reminded of Killswitch Engage, and I think that's the best comparison, except there's very rarely clean singing here (at least from what I heard here). The band says that the theme of “OBEY!” is “about standing up against all odds even when the chips are down. To persevere through anarchy and control. To open our eyes to the system that dictates human behavior.” That's a”

“As an added bonus to the bill, New Jersey natives Scars of Envy began the evening promptly at 6:30 PM ahead of the touring package. Consisting of Vocalist Ethan Murphy, Bassist John Gallagher, Drummer Marc Ambrosy, and Guitarist Jeff Anthony, Scars of Envy bring an aggressive brand of Metal with them to the stage. With riffs that are razor sharp and vocals that fiercely assaulted, the band’s hometown crowd were taken deep into a groove. It is recommended to check out their album New Damn Nation, and be on the look out for upcoming shows.”

“North Jersey Notes: Scars Of Envy, Killcode, Negative Sky and More! One band that really impressed the hell out of me at Summer Jam in Englishtown, NJ a couple of weeks ago was a band out of Bayonne called Scars Of Envy. I’ve seen these guys on a bunch of bills on the scene but I’ve never seen them live, and the funny thing is that I’ve been Facebook friends with singer Ethan Murphy forever. Scars Of Envy was a tasty little surprise for me filled with bone-crushing guitar riffs, thunderous drums, and a commanding screamer on songs like “Communion (In Black),” “Smear,” and my favorite track, “Bred To Conquer.” The riff on this song just kills! They kind of reminded me of Meshuggah. Scars Of Envy was put together by guitarist Jeff Anthony and bassist Greg James, but they didn’t remain just a duo for long because they quickly solidified their lineup with the ad (read the article here: http://www.theaquarian.com/2012/06/27/north-jersey-notes-scars-of-envy-killcode-neg”

“Review of album titled "Forsaken Me" Rising from New Jersey, the band Scars of Envy unleash a great mix of brutality and melody, using a wall of sound that is at one point familiar, yet undeniably engaging. On their album, “Forsaken Me,” all of the songs have an interesting contrast between slower, melodic sections interchanged with chugging riffs, featuring gravel throated vocals that show believable aggression, yet are still intelligible. As a whole, the instrumentals and musicianship show a wide range of influences and as a result, this is most accurately classified as traditional metal that successfully mixes old and new influences. Scars of Envy have a sound that will please fans of both mainstream and lesser-known metal bands alike. Their approach is more sophisticated and serious than the average metal band, yet it still maintains a sound that is true to the more extreme aspects of the genre.
