Scare Tactics are a Liverpool based band bringing back a slice of old school metal with a whole new approach. They mix melodic and aggressive vocals with powerful and memorable riffs. Their impressive dual guitar harmonies wail over a heavy grooving rhythm section.
In 2010, after the disolution of their previous band Hollow Point, brothers Andrew and Stuart Barker decided to start a new band. They joined Paul Charnock, former Ogun guitar player and Danny Williams, ex Obsolete, and created Scare Tactics.
After the success of their EP ‘Ages’ their premier album ‘Legion’ was launched in June 2015. Also in 2015, they released a video of their first single ‘Little Time’ . In early 2018 they made a new video for their song ‘Remain’.
In 2018 Paul Charnock decided to leave the band to give priority to his other projects. After a short period without a second guitar and a few gigs played with guest Daniel Moran (Reaper) the band came across Marty Ventura, ex Elephantom, who promptly joined the team and brought a new life to the band.
Scare Tactics have played many prestigious venues and shows around the UK, including Bloodstock Festival in 2012 & Download Festival in 2015. They have also supported great metal bands like Hatebreed, Skindred, Kobra & The Lotus and Tyketto.
The band is now working on new songs and hitting the stage harder than ever.
