Massive Scar Era is a metal band with Egyptian oriented influence, we introduce pre-colonial Egyptian music to our sound, celebrating the Egyptian identity. What does this mean? The violin, which heavily utilizes Egyptian scales and microtones, does not follow the guidelines set by the Cairo Music Conference (1932), held during the British Colonization of Egypt.
From its formation in 2005, MSE has been heavily involved in supporting gender issues promoting anti-sexual harassment and women empowerment campaigns.
The band has recently released a new EP, Color Blind, on Oct 5, 2018. The EP was recorded at Rain City Recorders, Vancouver BC, and carefully mastered by Dan Swano at Unisound AB, Germany. the single has experienced a great deal of positive reception from both our new and old audience, as well as the media.
