Brazilian thrashers Scars, celebrating their career of over 30 years and their first live album, showcase the cohesion and power of their current line-up in a music video for their metal classic “Return To The Killing Ground“.
Continuing the promotion of their first live album after over three decades of existence, thrash giants Scars have recently released an
energized version of “Return To The Killing Ground“, a classic originally presented on “The Nether Hell” EP (2005), as the second music
video taken from the first-ever official live album entitled “Violent Tour 2022: Live In Sao Paulo”.
You can watch the video below:
“Violent Tour 2022: Live In Sao Paulo”, the band’s first official album with the excellent guitarist Ricardo Lima, was recorded at Iglesia La
Borratxeria, in Sao Paulo/SP, on July 24, 2022, and will go down in history not only as a true consecration to Brazilian Thrash Metal, but
also as a thank you to the loyal and passionate fans who, besides following the band for all these years, have energetically honoured this
event. This release closes the cycle of the highly praised album “Predatory”, released two years ago through international label Brutal
Records (USA/Canada), in partnership with Proper Music (Europe) and Voice Music (Brazil). It’s also available in digital format through Bandcamp and will also be released in physical format in the first half of 2023.
Guitarist Alex Zeraib comments:
“This music, besides being killer, has even more energy live. Because of this, we also registered it on video, because we really like how it
is performed by this current formation, which is very faithful to the original studio version, but with the addition of Gobo, Mitché and
Ricardo’s personal touches. Now we have an updated and monstrous 2022 version of this classic.”
Vocalist Regis F comments:
“One of the best tracks from ‘The Nether Hell’, which very much deserved to have a video to match its greatness. We play it nowadays with a stronger footprint live, showing technique and cohesion in the whole piece. I am very happy for another Scars‘ conquest!”
Bassist Marcelo ‘Mitché’ comments:
“It is one of the old songs that I most enjoy playing, and one of the most requested by the public at our shows. So, it’s only fair that we
have a live version with this current line-up, and, of course, with me, which, in all modesty, was great (laughs).”
Drummer João Gobo comments:
“Besides being a song that escapes from the conventional, it revisits remarkable characteristics thanks to its melodic construction, mixed with variations in tempo and a unique energy. These characteristics, allied to the wonderful receptivity of the public, make it a great classic! It is a great pleasure to be able to perform it live!”
Guitarist Ricardo Lima concludes:
“We played “The Nether Hell” in its entirety on this tour as a surprise to the fans, and this particular track really doesn’t let anyone sit still! This particular show was very special and gratifying for me, because I knew it would be recorded for what would be my debut on an official Scars record. The audience was very participative and energetic, which made it easier for us to create the necessary synergy for a memorable performance!”
Scars is currently formed by Regis F. (vocals), Alex Zeraib and Ricardo Lima (guitars), Marcelo “Mitché” (bass) and João Gobo (drums), and intend to present a new phase in their career very soon, with great news for the first half of 2023.
