THE SCOURGER, the brute thrash metal force from Helsinki, Finland, will support ARCH ENEMY on April 13 at Tavastia in Helsinki.

THE SCOURGER's second full-length studio album, "Dark Invitation to Armageddon", was released in January (March in continental Europe via Cyclone Empire). Joe Petagno, the artist behind the MOTÖRHEAD logo and album art, designed the cover for the CD.

"Dark Invitation to Armageddon" was mixed by Pelle Saether at Studio Underground in Västerås, Sweden. Pelle's previous work includes, among others, such names as CARNAL FORGE and MILLENCOLLIN.

THE SCOURGER reissued its debut album, "Blind Date with Violence", in October 2006 across Europe via Germany's Cyclone Records. The bonus material on the CD was taken from "To the Slayground" EP, the "Maximum Intensity" single and the Tuska 2006 live performance.

THE SCOURGER was formed in 2003 by former GANDALF singer Jari Hurskainen, guitarist Pekka Hämäläinen and drummer Seppo Tarvainen. Jani Luttinen of THE WAKE took the second-guitar post from Harri Hytonen, this new lineup debuting with a hometown (Helsinki) support to TRIVIUM in October 2005. THE SCOURGER issued their full-length debut, "Blind Date with Violence", produced by BLAKE's Aaro Seppovaara, in January 2006. In May Jani Luttinen injured his hand, necessitating WARMEN's Antti Wirman stepping in as substitute.
