Swedish metal band SCAAR was formed in Eskilstuna, Sweden, by guitarist Alf Johansson and singer Alex Jonsson in early 1999. Bass player Mats Vassfjord and drummer Richard Holmgren joined shortly thereafter to complete the lineup. All four members had been active in numerous bands in the Eskilstuna/Västerås-area for years, before joining forces to form SCAAR. During 2005 drummer Richard Holmgren was replaced by Kristian Huotari.

Having their roots in different metal genres SCAAR delivers an intense attitude which follows the footsteps of bands like Slayer, Machine Head and Pantera as well as adding their own touch to their thrash metal. But this band is far from being clones! This is a brutal band from Sweden not trying to chase either Entombed's or In Flames' coat tails, but rather get down to the business of rocking out on all cylinders and pounding out vicious heavy rock.

Bands from this genre tend to be outstanding live acts and SCAAR is no exception. They have been described as nothing short of energetic, hard-hitting and in-your-face! Just the way it should be.

Their last CD (The Second Incision) was distributed world wide and led to an exceptional recognition among the fans around the world. In addition to that they received rave reviews from the magazines and papers.

“Having such a well renowned band as Scaar signed to our label is a statement. Big things are about to happen. The new album is an absolute killer and there is no doubt that both fans and the media will love it”  says Andreas Nyström of Alabama Records.
