Scamp - Biography




Scamp was originally the brainchild of guitarist Mads Christensen and drummer Morten Christensen.

After releasing their first critically acclaimed EP, "The New Groove Complex", an additional guitarist, Kristian Bruun, and vocalist Mikael Rise was added to the line up.

Their creative sparring resulting in the EP, "re-draft" which was recorded at Jacob Hansen Studios (Hatesphere, Mnemic, Mercenary) and mixed at ZigZound by Ziggy (Illdisposed, Mercenary, Hatesphere) - Released in 2005, it further improved Scamps position as one of the most respected unsigned bands in the Danish metal scene.

Having previously performed with Mnemic, Mercenary, Stonegard, Darkane, Korn and Evergrey, Scamp delivers unnervingly tight live sonic assaults on its audience, that, despite the highly technical polymetrics never looses its groove!

"Scamp (...) delivered a killer performance, that absolutely ranges in the category of ingenious" (Danish Metal)

While having developed their own unique style, Scamp has been described as a mix between Meshuggah, Fear Factory and Chimaira incorporated with intense melodic passages that adds to the atmospheric feel of the music.
