Progressive power metallers, Runescarred, premiere their cover of Elton John’s ‘Madman Across The Water’ exclusively via Ghost Cult Magazine. The new track lands ahead of the re-release of their 2020 album, The Distant Infinite on September 24th 2021.
The band comments:
“Madman Across the Water” has always been a song I wanted to cover. We talked about making it heavier, doing something different with it. Ultimately, the song is perfection as it is and we can’t top that. So we just rocked it as best we could and dig the shit out of playing it!”

Combining epic, soaring clean and guttural, harsh vocals with powerful instrumentation, Runescarred deliver a dynamic sound. The quintet’s composition draws upon grounded metal attributes but elevates their music through incorporating their distinctive identity. Whether delivering a hard-hitting metal track, or delving into a softer acoustic piece, Runescarred pour utter emotion and storytelling into the heart of their sound. There is even an element of theatricality to their sound that elevates the atmosphere. From ludicrously intense shredding and melodic riffs to ethereal acoustic melodies, their music reaches another level.
Runescarred bring an exhilarating contribution to the world of metal, developing their music through inspired compositional techniques and performances. This re-release with new material celebrates their achievements and provides a glimpse into the band’s continuing evolution.
