Check out the video at: youtu.be/eXzxX8Q13Ac SCARS OF THE FLESH will release In Darkness Alone on November 18.
In Darkness Alone is the third full length release from SCARS OF THE FLESH, featuring five brand new original tracks plus four cover songs. Seething with dark melodic atmosphere, this new album dives deeper into the elements that SOTF outlined with their first two releases, all the while expanding upon 2017’s Harvest of Souls and 2020’s Reaching into the Void.
Bringing epic song structures, mixed with brutality, melody and sheer emotion, In Darkness Alone sets to make a definitive mark in a genre already defined by many great bands, yet without sounding like mere mimicry.

Scars of the Flesh is a Melodic Blackened Death Metal Band from San Antonio, TX, created in 2014 by Guitarists Bryan Eckermann (Solo Artist, ex-Wings of Abaddon), Derek Russell and Vocalist Kobey Lange (Cerebral Desecration, ex-Wings of Abaddon). Their debut album Harvest of Souls was released in 2017 to a wide positive online reaction, 20,000+ views on the Youtube stream and many album sales encouraged the members to push the band forward. 2020 saw the release of the second album Reaching into the Void, still crafted by only the three members alone, but a first live show was booked with fill-in members on drums and bass to celebrate the release and finally bring the band to the stage. Immediately after, Covid became a reality, and had prevented much progress throughout the next year and a half. But the work continued, and a new full lineup was soon in place with adding Collyn Rios (Cerebral Desecration, Black Jackal) on drums, and Robert O’Briant (The Hanged Man’s Curse, ex-Wings of Abaddon) on bass. Kicking off their return to the stage, was a battle for the Wacken festival in Texas as well as several other local shows. Now in November 2022 they return with their third album In Darkness Alone, featuring five new original tracks as well as four cover songs. Mixing a perfect blend of dark atmosphere, melody and brutality. This new release looks to carve the name Scars of the Flesh into the minds of all…
