Ep.11 - SCARS


Episode description

SCARS aren't your typical thrash metal band. Starting out in the depths of Chile, SCARS amassed a band from a mix of cultures, influences and styles to create angry, hard metal music that still maintains clarity, melody and skill. Oh, and they just so happen to be the most chilled people I have ever met.
