After the formation in 1995, the band SCARECROW N.W.A. (New World Annihilation) from Graz/Austria has their musical roots within nearly all ranges of Metal. From increased style changes and experiments, SCARECROW N.W.A. developed their typical style of Deathmetal. Their music can be described as powerful Deathmetal with strong Melodic – and Blackmetal influence, whereby the compositoric, as well as the melodic component is the center of attention. Listeners and musicians are equally demanded.

In 2015, SCNWA will celebrate their 20th anniversary with some special shows and other surprises. Be prepared!


“SCARECROW Now Works Ace! (, Stormlord, 9/10)“

“Who likes (early) In Flames, Dark Tranquility, Soilwork & Co can get this one right away, but also fans of Opeth, Nile or The Ocean should put it on their shopping list. (, Klaudia Weber, 9/10)“
