Progressive Metal / Heavy Rock Band RUNESCARRED has released the official music video for “Inviting Rivers,” the first single off of their upcoming LP, The Distant Infinite.
The band will be releasing the album’s second single, “Mammoth,” on Friday, 11/22, with a live watch party on Facebook the following day. Click HERE for additional details.
“‘Inviting Rivers’ keeps a lead foot on the gas pedal yet does not sacrifice one iota of hook in its pursuit of light speed. Great performances from the whole band as everyone is hauling serious ass throughout, and I especially enjoyed throwing a few musical quotes from various Russian composers into my guitar solo. I would say it’s our most direct and concise track yet; I hope everyone digs it!” ~ Tim

Runescarred are a progressive metal and rock powerhouse who, since their inception on June 27, 2017, have made a tremendous name for themselves. Having released their critically acclaimed E.P., We Are, in conjunction with their single “Being God”, the quintet has garnered global praise. Features in Metal Hammer, Loudwire, Decibel, and Power Play are only a few examples of their worldwide notice.
Runescarred has signed with TLG Entertainment for management and distribution, after TLG heard rough mixes for The Distant Infinite. Says TLG CEO, Denny Sanders, “After hearing the early mixes the band had sent to us we knew they were a band that fit our brand of ‘True Metal’.”
A powerhouse of a stage show, the band has already joined the stage with legends like Metal Church and contemporary peers like Holy Grail. With their debut EP having been a veritable tour de force, the upcoming full length – and accompanying performances – is poised to entertain and earn more praise from fans and critics alike.
With deep connections throughout the underground, and a passion for the road that has rarely been matched, Runescarred sit on the precipice of great things. Embracing the dark realities of humanity, Runescarred’s music continues to explore bleak fantasy worlds and the brokenness of the human condition. Fusing groove with bombast, riffs with sonic poetry and destructive growls with transcendent cleans, there is something mesmerizing and powerful about Runescarred. Just as likely to pull you into the pit as they are to bow a head in self reflection, it’s hard not to be impressed by this Texas metal legion.
