Album Review: Scars Of Solitude – Deformation (Inverse Records)

Out on December 1st 2017 via Inverse Records, Deformation is the new album from Scars of Solitude. A melodic metal quintet from Äänekoski, Finland.

Solitude 1

Kicking off with some urgent groove, Scars of Solitude are bringing melancholy metal with this new album. Fool & Enemy deliver head-banging riffs, captivating hooks & just enough tunefulness to keep you attentive.

After the faster start things take a much gentler & easy-going route. Emotional Graveyard’s title is very fitting for a song that is steeped in morose melody & atmosphere while Live to Regret’s thought-provoking tune is effective.

Switching between up-tempo rhythm & rising melodies, Deformation moves along a decent pace. Each track is arranged impressively & thanks to top production quality it’s very hard not to find at least something to enjoy here. Great vocals, mischievous guitar solos & a clear understanding of what makes something memorable.

The final track, The End of Me is a great example of this. The conclusion of a dark & cold but colourful sounding album.
