With 2020 behind us, the El Paso music scene is getting back to how it was; with many local bands recording & performing shows. Scattered Storm was one of the bands halted by the events of 2020, but they're going back to where they started: recording new music. They've announced a new EP coming out this summer & today they released their first music video.

Scattered Storm is an industrial groove metal band formed in early 2020 featuring Andre Acosta on lead vocals, Kevin Armstrong on guitar, Jay Arriaga on drums/keys & later getting Eddy Garcia on bass. Their sound has been compared to the likes of Fear Factory, Gojira, Messuggah & TesseracT, & their new single, 'Kingslayer" definitely would fit in the realm of HEAVINESS. According to Kevin Armstrong, Kingslayer is their heaviest song & he got the idea by watching "too much Godzilla" & classic movies by Stanley Kubrick. "We felt this song really encompasses the overall sound of the band, because it has pretty much everything we wanted to throw in there. Big vocals, big guitars, pummeling bass, but most importantly that heavy...steady groove, which will get some of these headbanging necks a run for their money. Lyrically touches on a couple of religious subjects plus the philosophical, but mostly focusing on letting go of all of that and being free of the mind and spirit."

Earlier this month, it was announced that Scattered Storm was signed onto Blood Blast (a digital distributor powered by Nuclear Records) & they released the music video for "Kingslayer" today, directed by Chris Bohn.

Their new EP called "Oblivion" will be coming out July 9th & you can hear Scattered Storm on Q Connected, Sunday nights 10pm to midnight. If you're a local artist & you perform within 200 miles of El Paso, you can submit your music HERE or send me an email at daniel.paulus@townsquaremedia.com
