The year 2009 has been a major leap for the band with the recording of their first full length album entitled “Blinding the Masses” which is a continuation over their previous EP “Valley of The Sandwalkers” (2007). That same year Scarab won the “United We Rock” battle and got selected out of 160 bands from the middle-east and pan-Arab countries. They performed at two acclaimed international music festivals, “With Full Force XVI 2009” in Germany (alongside Amon Amarth, Carcass, My Dying Bride and Dimmu Borgir) and “Dubai Desert Rock Festival 2009” in UAE (opening for Motörhead, Opeth, Arch Enemy and Chimaira). In 2012 Scarab were invited to perform at the Acclaimed “Devilstone Festival (Velnio Akmuo)” in Lithuania (performing alongside Alcest, Warbringer, Anathema, Aura Noir and Lake of Tears).
Formed of a combination of different musical tastes and personalities, Scarab stand as a united musical entity. The music came out from the fierce. deep and complicated feelings, thoughts and experiences; expressing all this through new and fresh progressions that matches their identity and captures the soul and heart, making it melodically memorable and a journey to a story being told, while the lyrical themes are mainly about spirituality, theories and philosophies in how they perceive the world around them and how to survive and deal with the chaotic human nature.
Scarab at the moment have recorded their upcoming album titled “Serpents of the Nile” containing 8 tracks to be released in 2013.
