Scarab is a death metal band from Cairo-Egypt, formed in 2006. Sprouting from the band “Hatesuffocation” which had roots running since 2001 until 2006 with 2 self-released EPs. The name Scarab is definitely influenced by the Egyptian roots of the band. These creatures became iconic in Ancient Egyptian culture and regarded as sacred due to the Scarab’s association with the sun god. During mummification, the ancient Egyptians used to replace the heart of the dead with a scarab believing that it would help with the rebirth in the afterlife. In that sense, the Scarab portrays the band’s ability to reinvent themselves, survive and rise over the obstacles in their path.
Following on from the success of previous albums 'Blinding The Masses' and 'Serpents Of The Nile', in 2017 Scarab will be releasing their 3rd full-length album titled 'Martyrs Of The Storm'. This highly anticipated album will be released worldwide via Swedish record label Vicisolum Productions in the early Autumn of 2017.
