The Scourger Reveal New Album Details

THE SCOURGER, the brute thrash metal force from Helsinki, Finland are about to release their second full length studio album entitled Dark Invitation To Armageddon.

The recording of the album has been finalized and the finishing touches to the mix has been done by Pelle Saether at Studio Underground in Västerås, Sweden. Pelle's previous work includes, among others, such names as CARNAL FORGE and MILLENCOLLIN. During the Tuska Open Air Festival 2007, Pelle visited Finland to watch the band perfom live and this proved to be the start for a creative co-operation for the mixing process. Both band and engineer share the opinion, that the forthcoming disc will be the most brutal sounding thrash metal album that has ever been released by a Finnish metal band. Also some selected representatives of the media share this opinion, as they have been given the opportunity to listen to the album beforehand.

Joe Petagno, the artist behind the Motörhead logo and album art, has designed the cover artwork for The Scourger's new album. Mr Petagno has been very excited about creating artwork for the apocalyptic world that is part of The Scourger's vision. In the finished artwork Joe brought to life the vision of singer Jari Hurskainen like no artist has been able to do before. Joe Petagno's huge back catalogue of amazing artwork inludes such artists as ALICE COOPER, PINK FLOYD and LED ZEPPELIN.

The new single, 'Never Bury The Hatchet', released in Finland during the Tuska festival will now be available for the fans as an exclusive MySpace download during the period of September 10th-October 17th.

Prior to an extensive tour of Finland in support of the album the band will perform at Nosturi in Helsinki on the 5th of October together with BEFORE THE DAWN, PROFANE OMEN and AXEGRESSOR. More tour dates will follow shortly.
