Biography

Enter the realm of the Red Death…

Scorched-Earth had its origins in the one-man band project Nazgul, founded by Terry McCorriston in 1994. After one demo, “Under Blood Red Eyes”, the band’s name was re-christened “Scorched-Earth” in 1995 and McCorriston set out to form a full band to fully express S-E’s Metal Of Extermination. After several line-up changes, their first CD “Thy Kingdom Crushed” was recorded in 1999 with the line-up of Terry on guitar and vocals, Scott Sanders on drums, Mike Kapsiak on guitar and Sanford Johnson on bass. Released in early 2000, it met with favor in the underground and is now sold out. Drawing from the cult thrash feel as well as modern Death Metal influences, “Thy Kingdom Crushed” stood alone in its uniqueness and ruthlessness.

After going through some lineup changes, the band recorded and released “Gods, Kings, and Conquerors” in 2003. This time out they were a three piece, with new drummer Joshua Hanenburg stepping into the fold. “Gods, Kings, and Conquerors” was even more vicious than the previous CD, and fans received it like rabid wolves. Ted Cohn was then recruited to join in on guitar, and the band played many shows in the US and Canada in support of this album. “Gods, Kings & Conquerors”, like its predecessor, is now sold out.

Scorched-Earth then set to work on their next album, “Devils In Iron”. Recorded in April 2005, it had been suspended in Limbo for various reasons until March of 2007, when Conqueror Wyrm Records stepped up and unleashed the release. This album was the band’s most ruthless they’d put out by then, successfully merging their warlike Thrash with the iron hand of Doom.

    Found the new band page and updated my ITunes to the proper band name "Scorched-Earth". Now it's time for some more listens.

    We have been compared to "AT War", "Sodom" and "Destroyer 666". We are a product of all our influences. Listen and decide for yourself.
