Keinen Bock auf Vergleiche – Something Wicked is coming
Something wicked is coming… In fall 2015, four musicians came together in Donaueschingen, nearby the Danube spring, in south-west Germany. Their Mission: Sharing a mutual vision of love for authentic and honest Hard Rock in tradition of genre legends like Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath or Dio. This passion created a connection which appeared for the first time on a record in October 2016.
Under the label SCREAM (TopX Music) SCARCROW released this love on their EP “A Murder Of Crows”. As a result, SCARCROW found themselves on stages around their area, followed by gigs in the rest of Germany and abroad. One of the main Characteristics of the quartet are detailed coordinated outfits, which make the stage design uniform and lend visual expression to a proper ghost train ride of their lyrics.
Behind the curtain, SCARCROW worked constantly hard on new material, which is fully developed and elaborated in 2019. To be finally found on the first full-fledged album. The debut Lp “Beyond The Black Rainbow” picks up on the EP’s trademarks, but adds a whole bunch of quality and catchiness to it. Especially frontman Damon Fry, who had already a unique stage presence from day one, lends life into the songs with his dark and charismatic voice. Due to this intensity, the lyrics on “Beyond The Black Rainbow” are feathered with a kaleidoscope of dark and mystical stories. In which, however, a certain wink may not be missing.
