Scordatura's Doesn't Torment the Weak!

Scottish death metal bruisers Scordatura have spent years crafting their sound to reach the perfect, bludgeoning experience thus the release of their debut album "Torment of The Weak".

Having formed the band in 2007 they have gone on to play all over the UK supporting the likes of Cryptopsy, Misery Index, Aborted, Beneath The Massacre, Malevolant Creation, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Condemned & many more as well as touring with Cerebral Bore in 2011 and two self booked tours of Scotland in 2009/2010.

1. Tell us the brief history of your band and how did the band get it's name, Scordatura?

We started back in 2007 and played our first show in June 2008. We've had a few line-up changes over the years but still have 3 original members (Owen, Dave, Tam). We've since went on to open for bands such as Aborted, Crypstopsy, Misery Index and many more as well as a small UK tour with our Scottish buddies Cerebral Bore.The name Scordatura came from Latin meaning altered tunings - it was Owen who had come up with the name.
