Egyptian Death Metal Scarab Unveiled Manifestation "Coffin Texts'

Over a long-running career, Cairo based Egyptian death metal group Scarab after five years since the recording of their last sonic assailment revealed their first excerpt "Coffin Texts" from their upcoming third full-length album “Martyrs of the Storm” and will release on 6th March 2020 via ViciSolum Productions. Ancient Egyptian mythology, history was always enigmatic, mysterious and ambiguous from centuries and obviously difficult to trace. Pertaining to their geographical position where Egypt prevailed for centuries spreading knowledge and reaching higher levels of progression and exhibited humility in the face of cosmic forces such as death and divine wrath. Cleansing ignorance and darkness Egypt enlightened their mysterious history through spreading knowledge and exposure to the world about ancient enormous fields of science. Scarab means a large dung beetle of the eastern Mediterranean area, regarded as sacred in ancient Egypt. I believe that the fascination over ancient Egyptian mythology will never end and for a good reason. Always Egyptian mythology concept based article, image, band whatever easily attracted me because of their epic history, magnificent theme, culture.

Nowadays most of the bands experiment on their soundscapes to create a piece of music that can be different from others and bring to them a unique identity. Death Metal colliding with Middle Eastern, Egyptian or otherwise unconventional influences enjoys indeed tend quite rare but Scarab able to gain proper attention in this complex, unrelenting, disparate musical style. Scarab became a well-established group of bands who can make a fully sound and creative and with a lot of excellence in his lyrics, with well crafted, distinct content. It’s really difficult to separate a band, their story, their legacy and their music from each other to glean some truth about the piece you presently get to witness. Scarab has triumphed musically to attain their own particular style, religious history, and sound without sounding niche or trite. Scarab delivers a very unique kind of death metal combining brutal, technical, melodic and atmospheric musical style with Egyptian, Arabic folk elements. Their musical level of complexity, technicality and obscurity are fantastic.
Their latest studio release possessed me with their extreme, chromatic,multi-layered, powerful, blasting death metal musical style with technical riffs work, paradigm shift and melodic, folk vibe with sporadic middle eastern tunes, dark, sensual and mystical soundscapes and obviously their distinguishing musical composition, the grandiose concept just blew me away. Sammy Sayed and his cohorts exude tremendous effort in a radiant way on this track with excellent diligence and nailed it. I really appreciate each and every single musician's unsurpassed ability, efficiency, and skill.  This new track is a triumphant rich death metal. 

This whole track reflects the grand diversity of sound brought together on this new track. Their incredibly sensitive,slightly sandy,dusty antique and disparate musical styles all combined in one bold, enlightened display of unbound creativity Despite the often fast ,furious,cacophonous, heavy and extreme form of death metal assaults  with a lots of segments of  brutal,technical,melodic segments,tasteful Middle eastern,Arabic musical style involvement and without sacrificing the atmospheric aspect enhanced this new tracks unique flavor and enriched this track that is very powerful, heavy and excellent all at the same time along with a good  balance  of death metal music, Middle Eastern music, melody and brutality with strangulated, intricate riffs work and those effective rasps, harsh vocals simultaneously . Their music is both dark and ecstatic. I highly appreciate and applaud and cite this new effort because of their distinct style. This contains a strong dose of creative, memorable death metal with a trace of a modern taste, relentless rhythmic, technical, brutal and melodic that is simply outstanding.

 This track is filled with a slew of twisted, traversed, chugging, groovy, intricate, apocalyptic, crushing riffs line ups with technical prowess. As well bass line up is shifting, chaotic, deeper, roving and bludgeoning. Drumming, the percussion line up is thundering, dodgy, punishing, frantic, blast beating and rabidly insane. Individual riffs, solo sections which sound briefly something exotic.

Intricate, spectacular riffs, bass lineups matched in a fantastic way with technical orientation. This indulges strong songwriting, grandiose concept, and brilliant musicianship. Tempo changes are excellent and complicated. Vocals harsh, snarling growls, deep rasps, aggressive, vigorous, crucial voice woven in a good manner with their utterly savage, merciless, onslaught, primal organic, violent, uncanny death metal sound with a lot of technical prowess, melodic segments, Middle Eastern musical accompaniment and embedded perfectly.

I really worship this band. This new track has a fantastic sense of exoticism without any sacrifice in intensity and will take you on a journey where myth, religion, mystery, the desert and the Egyptian bright night meet. Indeed it'd be outstanding another one release of 2020 so far. Scarab able to cultivate Middle eastern music with death metal properly and garnished presented this whole as a masterpiece. Yet the subtle touches of Middle Eastern, Arabic musical style inspired flair and groove is enough to distinguish the band from the extreme metal pace and their predecessor album demonstrates it perfectly. These themes of primordial order through the chaos are mirrored in the band’s own music.  There is a sense of regality permeating throughout as the chaos is articulated, defined, and embraced by native sons with a royal lineage as old as the sands of the Egyptian desert.
