Official Biography November 2013:

Evil Scarecrow are the finest parody metal band from Nottingham to have written a song about a robot… probably.

Many years ago in a desolate Lincolnshire town a band of dubiously termed musicians of Nordic heraldry with a fondness for sticky back plastic decided to go their separate ways, but as a phoenix rises from the ashes a new and perhaps even more glorious band emerged from the dying embers of Thor’s Children (widely regarded as the greatest Blue Peter Metal band of all time) and thus Evil Scarecrow triumphantly exploded in to existence.

In the following years the slowly band relocated to Nottingham evolving through several line up changes to become the monstrous and stunning apparition that you see today. The current incarnation of the band is version 5.0 featuring Dr. Rabid Hell, Brother Dimitri Pain, Kraven Morrdeth, Princess Luxury and Ringmaster Monty Blitzfist. Previous band members may have been left behind but they’re not forgotten, the influence of Hymen the Unbreakable, Nemesis, Frenzy G. Spinesnap and Papa Bongo have all helped to create the unique sound and style of Evil Scarecrow.

The band have two full albums “Crowcifiction” and “Sixty Six Minutes Past Six” with the “Hell Dog” EP being released between the two. Two official videos have been released, the ever popular “Robototron” and fan favourite “Blacken the Everything”.

It is in the live arena that the band have really proved their worth, they have gigged relentlessly around the UK for a number of years captivating and sometimes rather surprising audiences from venues as small as the local pub, as legendary as Nottingham Rock City, as mammoth as the main stage at Bloodstock Festival and as exclusive as a boat sailing down the Thames on the way to the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. Everywhere they play they win new fans, their passion and enthusiasm ensures they always connect with their audience who in turn spread the word far and wide.

The unwavering support of their fans has seen Evil Scarecrow win the Bloodstock Unsigned Competition and feature in Terrorizer’s best unsigned band readers’ poll, in October 2013 the fans stepped up once again by ensuring the band reached the goal of their first Pledge Music Campaign less than 24 hours after the project went live.

This support is what keeps the band pushing forwards as they step into the studio with legendary producer Russ Russell to record their highly anticipated 3rd album, the first recorded with the current line up. As ever the album will include influences from across the metal genre melded together with the inimitable Evil Scarecrow humour and just a smattering of some rather more imitable dance moves. The band show no signs of slowing down their gigging schedule with shows across the UK scheduled throughout the coming year, including a return to the Main Stage of Bloodstock 2014. When they’re invading a stage near you, it’s not to be missed!

“If you havent seen Evil Scarecrow (9) yet then it feels unfair to ruin the surprise. An affable blend of Pythonesque absurdity, artfully drawn from an evident love of metal, they have the crowd in the palm of their collective claw from Sixty-Six minutes past Six.”
Metal Hammer

“Praise be, then, for Evil Scarecrow…Novelty bands don’t last long on stage, everyone’s tired of the joke by the third song in. Evil Scarecrow break the mould by being damned competent musicians as well as piss funny.”
The Rock City Review

“… those who camped surely felt the repercussions, as did the festival itself as tooled-up monster magnets Evil Scarecrow found themselves taking to the stage a little later than scheduled. That didn’t stop the enthusiastic crowd giving their melody-laced extreme metal their full attention, and their performance was surprisingly engaging.”
Powerplay Magazine

“This quintet command the big stage surprisingly well, suppressing all the apprehensions I had … Despite my usual hangover, I walked away from their set with an amused grin.”
Metal Team UK

“It’s well thought-out and delivered metal … and frighteningly hilarious crowd interaction – creating a chaotic mix that sees Evil Scarecrow win many hearts and become perfect main stage openers.”
Planet Loud

“Evil Scarecrow is the only unsigned band appearing on the main stage and they certainly earn the crowd’s respect by putting on a very decent show. Fans have clearly turned up and know all the moves and lyrics by heart.”
Subba Cultcha

“Festivals are all about being blown away by bands you know almost nothing about and for me at HRH Evil Scarecrow managed just that. Another unforgettable set and a band I definitely have to see again.”
Cack Blabbath

“They perform their soul ripping metal tracks with such passion it’s hard not to stand up and take notice. That and their set is also one of the most wildly aggressive and downright entertaining sets of the entire festival so far.”
