It's been a long and twisted musical journey for THE EVERSCATHED. The band’s lineage dates back to 1996 when W. Frickenstein (bass/vocals) and his band mates chose a warpath of dark, dismal Death Metal to become known as ENMORTEM. The band went on to record and release 2 demos (“Bleeding The Sorrow” in 1997 and “Their Blood I Offer The King” in 1998) and 2 EPs (“Manifestations Of Infernal Disgust” in 1999 and “Barbaric Displeasure” in 2000). In 2002, ENMORTEM were ready to record a full length and entered the studio to create the “Razors Of Unrest” album. Before the album was released, ENMORTEM decided on a name change, since the group’s past endeavors in no way represented the current song writing and purpose. On January 1st, 2003, the band’s name was officially changed to THE EVERSCATHED. A series of injuries suffered by each of the band members (at different times) put off the release of “Razors” until 2006, when it was finally released by Open Grave Records. Many shows were played in support of the record, and in 2008 THE EVERSCATHED entered the studio to record “The Devils Cross” EP. Also recorded at that time was the two song “Path Of Soured Dreams” demo CD, which acted as a teaser for the song writing path the band was heading towards. In 2009, original drummer Tim Frickenstein left the band and was immediately replaced with longtime friend John Contreras, proven drummer and producer with the bands ETERNAL HATRED, VEHEMENT and CONGLOMERATORZ. Shows in 2009 were the band’s strongest to date, with their stage presence increasing tenfold. The band continued writing for the next full-length album, and in 2010 recorded and released “Still Screaming World” through Allergicide Music. The band was now playing the biggest shows of their career, opening for nationals, headlining events and touring with other veteran Metal acts. In 2013 the band recorded the “Disgrace In Arms” EP, and shortly after its completion THE EVERSCATHED parted ways with long-time guitarist Brice Dalzell. Barely out of the studio, the band had already begun working on brand new material, along with honing the classic material with new guitarist Allen Mate (UNSOLEMN, EMBER, EMPYREAN SKY). With the new line-up intact, the band decided to record a brand new single. The song "Wave of Disaster" showcased the style that the band had been heading toward for many years – ‘Death Metal for fans of All Metal’. The single immediately took off as a fan favorite and led to 2014 being one of THE EVERSCATHED's busiest touring years thus far. 2015 saw THE EVERSCATHED recording and releasing their most acclaimed album to date, with "Scars To Bare" finding an audience with more fans outside of the United States than ever before. 2016 marked the 10 year anniversary since the release of "Razors Of Unrest", an album that opened a lot of new doors for THE EVERSCATHED at that point in the band's journey through the musical landscape. To help celebrate, THE EVERSCATHED recorded a new EP entitled “Still Raging In Unrest” and simply gave away physical CD copies to the friends and fans of the band that continue to go to live shows and support their local Metal scene. The EP featured a re-worked, re-recorded version of the namesake song “The Everscathed”, a cover of OVERKILL’s classic thrashsterpiece “Powersurge” and a brand new intro theme in “A Foreboding Procession…”. The band toured and played many more local shows through 2017 & 2018. In late 2019, the band entered the studio once again to begin work on the next full-length album. All tracks were recorded and ready for mixing when technical problems arose in early 2020, followed by the Covid-19 pandemic, which set in before the album could be finished. With a brand new full-length record nearly complete, and the pent up rage that has built while in quarantine, the band is feverishly looking forward to finishing and releasing these new songs to the ears of the Heavy Metal faithful. The mission is to continue spreading the bizarre in new towns with new songs, and celebrate past victories with longtime friends and fans along the roads already traveled. THE EVERSCATHED will continue to bring Death Metal to fans of All Metal!
