The oldest traces of THE SCALDING date back to the end of 2012, when the band was originally formed by Marcel Hendrix (guitar), Cliff Demandt (Guitar), Ruud Haan (Bass) , John King (drums) and Boris Cornelissen (vocals). With decades of experience in former bands like Leng Tch’e and Carach Angren the band started to compose THE SCALDING’s first songs which was a mix of hard thrash metal with a groovy shade.

Beginning 2013 a new drummer, Erik Beckers, joined the band. With this line up change also the musical execution changed into a blasting sound of new modern death metal. THE SCALDING was ready to record their first EP ‘THE CONSCIOUS DILEMMA, which was recorded at the Tomster studio.

Mid 2014 Boris decided to leave the band and make space for THE SCALDING’s new extreme and dedicated frontman Benny Ubachs. Influences of bands like Hatesphere, The Black Dahila Murder and Misery Index. Prepare for aggressive riffs, blistering blast beats and homicidal grunts! THE SCALDING is ready to crush stages and set a high standard of Dutch modern extreme death metal.
