Massive Scar Era

MASSIVE SCAR ERA will release sophomore EP Color Blind on October 5. A previously released official video for the title track has garnered a worldwide buzz and can be viewed below.

Inclusive of members located in both Cairo and Vancouver, MASSIVE SCAR ERA is a metal band with Egyptian-oriented influences. The band introduces pre-colonial Egyptian music to through their sound, celebrating the Egyptian identity. What does this mean? The violin, which heavily utilizes Egyptian scales and microtones, does not follow the guidelines set by the Cairo Music Conference (1932), held during the British Colonization of Egypt.
From its formation in 2005, MASSIVE SCAR ERA has been heavily involved in supporting gender issues promoting anti-sexual harassment and women empowerment campaigns.
The EP was recorded at Rain City Recorders, Vancouver BC, and carefully mastered by Dan Swano at Unisound AB, Germany. The aforementioned first single has experienced a great deal of positive reception from both new and old fans, as well as the media.
“Egypt’s female fronted metal band Massive Scar Era shred a whole new sound.”
