Biography

BIOGRAPHY

Pete - Vocals/Guitars
Gorkas - Bass
Martin - Drums

Scalplock originally formed in 1993 with a line-up comprised of Pete (ex- Unseen terror, Azag-Thoth, Harmony as One, Insight and Nightside of Eden) on guitar, Martin (ex- Long cold Stare, Harmony as One, Nightside of Eden) on drums, Spencer on vocals and Adam on bass.
The band played a few shows before Adam left to go to America (where he went on to play with both Shelter and H2O) and Spencer departed to form Ignoramus.

After a hiatus the band reformed in ‘96 with Pete on vocals and guitar, Martin on drums and Jim on bass. During this period they released two demos ‘To Hate is to Cure’ and ‘Assert Direct Force’ before recording their first MCD entitled ‘Broken History’. Collaborating with Nihil from the label Cacophonous, they formed Insurrection Records and released the MCD in ‘97 and their first full length CD, ‘To Hate is to Cure’, in ‘98. The same year they toured mid-east America to promote the album, playing everywhere from Illinois to Pennsylvania to Iowa alongside bands like Drop Dead, Short Hate Temper, Botch and Ire.

1999 was probably one of the band’s busiest years for releases; the bands first 7” entitled ‘Inculcate The Fear’ and three more split seven inches with Arms Reach (Australia), Shank (Scotland), and Short Hate Temper (USA). The S.H.T. split release coincided with a very successful tour of Europe while the same year also marked the departure of Jim; he was replaced by new bass player, Big Al, who became a significant contributor in developing the band¹s sound.
