When: Friday, 24 September at 7pm - info here
Death metal fans unite! Scarred is one of Luxembourg's most exciting acts in the genre, and now back with their third album. In the words of the act: "Without being a narrative, this opus is constructed as a concept album and can be listened straight through with almost no interruption, with different parts of the album echoing each other much like a Pink Floyd album. It is meant to embark the listener on the same journey the band has traveled, from the initial disaggregation, up and down, to the final liberation." Here's a teaser.
