Founded in 2009 by the devoted musicians Chris, Gerrit, Henna,
Niklas and Max SCARNIVAL released their acclaimed self titled
debut in 2012. The band’s modern Melodic Death Metal, in the
beginning clearly rooted in the style of the swedish top dogs of the
scene like At the Gates, In Flames and Soilwork didn’t fail to excite

Ektomorf, Debauchery, Rage, Tankard, Cripper, Vader and many
more of the band’s heroes.
